The astounding story of a man who said that he would stop the motor of the world?and did. Tremendous in scope, breathtaking in its suspense, "Atlas Shrugged" is unlike any other book you have ever read.
Annotation:
Rand's 1200-page novel is a hymn of praise to the concept of rugged individualism, personified in John Galt. This polemic for Rand's philosophy of "rational self-interest" has been a steady seller since it was published in 1957.
Author Bio
Ayn Rand
Born Alisa Rosenbaum, Ayn Rand graduated from the University of Petrograd and immediately immigrated to the U.S., joining relatives in Chicago and then moving to Hollywood, where she hoped to write screenplays. She worked first as an extra in films, but eventually did begin to write. Most of her screenplays, like her novels, were fiercely anti-Communist, pro-capitalist diatribes. Her first successful novel, THE FOUNTAINHEAD (1945), was a bestseller; it was followed by ATLAS SHRUGGED. Both novels served as Rand's mouthpiece, articulating the philosophy known as Objectivism, which promotes "rational self-interest" and was wildly influential in the 1950s and 1960s. After ATLAS SHRUGGED, Rand stopped writing fiction, devoting the rest of her life to public speaking and works of philosophy. She was married for 50 years to Frank O'Connor, an actor; he died in 1979, when Rand (a lifelong chain smoker) was already suffering from lung cancer, which she died of in 1982, at 77.
