At last, Ayn Rand's masterpiece is available to her millions of loyal readers in trade paperback.

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. Atlas Shrugged made Rand not only one of the most popular novelists of the century, but one of its most influential thinkers.

Atlas Shrugged is 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 stretches the boundaries further than any book you have ever read. It is a mystery, not about the murder of a man's body, but about the murder--and rebirth--of man's spirit.

Atlas Shrugged is the "second most influential book for Americans today" after the Bible, according to a joint survey conducted by the Library of Congress and the Book of the Month Club

A true masterpiece that sadly turned out to be prophetic.

A novel that shows why socialism has always and will always fail all wrapped up in an engaging story and (mostly) believable characters.

A book that is, sadly, becoming more and more non-fictional every day. As they say in poker "Read it and weep".

Are you all retarded or just brainwashed by propaganda and Hollywood movies? Study History and try to actually think for yourselves. Question what information is given to you by the establishment.

A wonderful read for people who fancy themselves superior to others when they are really total idiots.
