The World of Atlas Shrugged | [Robert Bidinotto]

The World of Atlas Shrugged

Ayn Rand's famous 1957 classic, Atlas Shrugged, has become more widely read and influential with each passing year, thanks in part to its brilliant dramatization of Rand's Objectivist philosophy and its celebration of self-reliance, integrity, rationality, and productive effort.

Publisher's Summary

Ayn Rand's famous 1957 classic, Atlas Shrugged, has become more widely read and influential with each passing year, thanks in part to its brilliant dramatization of Rand's Objectivist philosophy and its celebration of self-reliance, integrity, rationality, and productive effort.


Like any great work of literature, however, Atlas Shrugged can be intimidating. Even those who have read and re-read it may feel they have not fully appreciated its vision of life. For the neophyte and the longtime admirer alike, The World of Atlas Shrugged provides essential context, brilliant commentary and authoritative insight into the novel's literary purpose and structure.

    "Absolutely life altering"

    This book takes a hard and honest look at the results of unintended consequences. While one's intentions may be one thing, actual human behavior is another. Mandated altruism is put on trial and hypocrisy is exposed. The book takes an enormous amount of patience and Ayn Rand would have been better served with a more insistant editor. She tends to be repetitive in her message but the message itself is truly and undeniably insightful as to what truly motivates man. Well worth the time invested. My biggest regret is that I didn't come across this book until I was 35. This will definitely be required reading (listening) for my two young boys.

    "The World of Atlas Shrugged"

    While there were some interesting elements to this book, I found it to be for the most part, well, fluffy. I was expecting a more critical look at the book. I found the narration annoying, and the potrayals off the mark of my own view of the characters. I knew I was in for trouble the first time they said "Who is John Galt?". They made it sound like it was something other than the rhetorical question of a person unable to comprehend what was happening to their world. I would only recommend this book to a first time reader
