In a scrap heap within an abandoned factory, the greatest invention in history lies dormant and unused. By what fatal error of judgment has its value gone unrecognized, its brilliant inventor punished rather than rewarded for his efforts?

If you could sum up Atlas Shrugged in three words, what would they be?

I am not a novel reader or listener for that mater, but I saw a documentary and I got curios. It is a fantastic story that I think it should be a must read for scholars. It brings to the table many examples and consequences of not having an strong mind and morals to follow your dreams and life. It helps you to understand how easy a mind can be manipulated by media and the consecuences of having and promoting stupid people to positions of power.

The narrator makes a fantastic job by changing his tone to distinguish each character.

Because it is a novel, I won't complain about the extensive and execive detail given at all times. I am not used to it, since I usually go for non-fiction books.

Give it a try

If you could sum up Jacqueline Kennedy: Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy in three words, what would they be?

Is an excellent work. The clarity and fidelity are not the best, but we have to considered the time and technology of the day. It is fascinating to hear how they thought, how they feel and their first hand experience with the relevant people that shaped our world.

This is a must for people of all ages interested in politics, physiology, sociology, filosophy, and all other human arts. Thanks to Caroline Kennedy for sharing this with us
