The astounding story of a man who said that he would stop the motor of the world-and did. Tremendous in scope breathtaking in its suspense, Atlas Shrugged is unlike any other book you have ever read. It is a mystery story, not about the murder of a man's body, but about the murder-and rebirth-of man's spirit.

With this acclaimed work and its immortal query 'who is John Galt?' Ayn Rand found the perfect artistic form to express her vision of existence. This is the book that has made her not only one of its most popular novelists of modern times, but also one of its most influential and controversial thinkers. This anniversary edition of Atlas Shrugged, celebrating the enduring legacy of its author, features an introduction by Rand's literary executor, Leonard Peikoff, and a Reader's Guide to her writings and philosophy. This volume will be welcomed by all admirers of what Dr. Peikoff calls 'Ayn Rand's masterwork.'

Atlas Shrugged
With all the poise and subtlety of a rampaging hippopotamus, Ayn Rand's magnum opus is a book that everyone should read. It's like watching a car crash. Atlas Shrugged alternative title Harry Potter and the Foolhardiness of Socialism is one of the most rambling and confused texts that this reviewer has ever had the misfortune of encountering. Rather than logically extrapolating sets of ideals to create a plausible dystopia in the style of Orwell, Rand directly pours Neo-Capitalism into the metaphorical mouth of the reader, then washes it down with a generous helping of uncomfortable smugness. It would probably be a good idea to read up on Randian philosophy before jumping straight in, as this poorly disguised rant will quickly overwhelm someone who doesn't know what they're getting into.
