    Ayn Rand here sets forth the moral principles of Objectivism, the philosophy that holds human life - the life proper to a rational being - as the standard of moral values and regards altruism as incompatible with human nature, with the creative requirement of survival, and with a free society.

    Scott says: "Rand Lovers Only"
    "Essential for Human living"
    Overall

    Ayn Rand's "The Virtue of Selfishness" is possibly the most liberating treatise on human living ever put to pen. This work should be at the top of the list of essential reading. Moreover, the world would be a far better place if more people chose to live a rational, conscious life.

  • Garlic and Sapphires: The Secret Life of a Critic in Disguise

    Story

    Garlic and Sapphires is Ruth Reichl's riotous account of the many disguises she employs to dine anonymously. There is her stint as Molly Hollis, a frumpy blond with manicured nails and an off-beige Armani suit that Ruth takes on when reviewing Le Cirque. The result: her famous double review of the restaurant: first she ate there as Molly; and then as she was coddled and pampered on her visit there as Ruth, New York Times food critic.

    Kathleen says: "disappointing"
    "Mouthwatering Read !!!"
    Overall

    Ruth Reichl can write! Not only does she recreate with Kodak imagery her many incognito journies into the world of restaurant haut-cuisine as the food critic for the NY Times, but her prose become almost poetic as she savors the complex flavors and layers of texture, meal by meal, costume after costume. I was dining at her table (inconspicuous), enjoying each irresistable morsel.

    Ruth Reichl - Five Stars!
