Very thought provoking. Better to read on paper. She is either way smarter than me, or has a hard time putting her thoughts together in a million words or less. I chose this book because I wanted to read something by Ayn. This was among the thinnest. I liked it, but I thought it was a bit pretentious. I'm sure Ayn was great fun at parties.
Apologia for sociopathy. Brilliant and pitifully misguided.
Want to know why the modern world is such a mess? Read this for a description of how to get there. "The Fountainhead" is another. For the comic book version, save some time and hair-pulling and read "Anthem."
The term "ethics" when referring to Ayn Rand is Orwellian.
Selflessness is not a behavior by which morality is quantified. It's just a truth about existance which must be considered for the sake of tranquility. This book is just junk piled onto junk. A total waste.
