The book starts and ends well, but looses its potency in between. I bought the book after seeing Mr. Lewis on CSPAN book review. Let's just say that his CSPAN interview provided more information in a lot less time. I do recognize Mr. Lewis as a western expert on Islam and I will continue to buy his books. I would recommend Karen Armstrong, however, to those who want more substance and a broader understanding.
This was my introduction to Rand's Objectivism. I love books that challenge the roots of my philosophical existence. Bravo. I will now continue to read her other works. She's added a new dimension to my life which demands reconciliation.
Personal Note: I would love to see Rand,Chopra, and C.S. Lewis in a philosophical cage match.
WARNING: If you accept Rand's challenge to "live" then you'll start down a road few will want to follow. You'll seem hyper critical and elitist to those who choose not to think. You may find yourself in a world of black and white that mystics and moochers and looters will label as "insensitive" and "narrow minded". Upon first glance Objectivism seems to be a non-religious fundamentalism for which only the brave will truly consider. Let the journey begin!
