    This brilliantly conceived book is based on a lecture course given by Dr. Leonard Peikoff in 1976 entitled, "The Philosophy of Objectivism". The lectures were attended by Ayn Rand, who helped prepare them and who also joined Peikoff in answering questions.

    L. Hattery says: "The very best overview of Objectivism"
    "Fantastic Comprehensive Classic Spoken Well"

    Story
    What did you love best about Objectivism?

    The applied Objectivist virtues where the rubber of philosophy meets the road of our lives.


    What does Johanna Ward bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her reading of this essential Objectivist text gives it a serious energy and cadence that from reading it I didn't impart. The sound quality and her voice are good; she is precise and gives the impression of being knowledgeable about the subject. She is far better than most I've heard on audible.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    In one setting of 20 hours this is probably not advised but for a daily commute of an hour each day you can zoom through this. I played at 1.25x speed which is enough of a pickup to still understand the crucial details of the material but I wouldn't advise going much faster unless you are a savant.
