Atlas Shrugged By Ayn Rand.

Tremendous in scope, breath-taking in its suspense, this is the story of a man who said that
he would stop the motor of the world - and did. Is he a destroyer or liberator? Why does
he have to fight his battle not against his enemies but against those who need him most -
including the woman he loves? Ayn Rand said about this book,"To all the readers who
discovered The Fountainhead and asked me many questions about the wider application of
its ideas, I want to say that I am answering these questions in the present novel, and that
The Fountainhead was only an overture to "Atlas Shrugged". I trust that no one will tell
me that men such as I write about don't exist. That this book has been written - and
published - is my proof that they do".

entire theoretical structure of Objectivism - that is, the only one that I know of my own
knowledge to be fully accurate".
