Book Description After the publication of Atlas Shrugged in 1957, Ayn Rand occasionally lectured in order bring her philosophy of Objectivism to a wider audience and apply it to current cultural and political issues. These taped lectures and the question-and-answer sessions that followed not only added an eloquent new dimension to Ayn Rand's ide... (See the whole review)

For The New Intellectual
For The New Intellectual by Ayn Rand

I have found this book to be more beneficial as an introduction to "Objectivist Thought" for the layman than any of her other writings. I have tried to talk to people at the ARI and TOC, but the minute I mention this title the subject is changed or the communication terminated. "For the New Intellectual", "A Time For Truth" by William E. ... (See the whole review)

The Early Ayn Rand
The Early Ayn Rand by Ayn Rand

I've just finished reading this wonderful collection of writing exercises, previously unpublished stories and plays and unpublished excerpts from We the Living and The Fountainhead. It is delightful to witness Rand's progress, both as writer and philosopher, in these works written between 1926 and 1938. One of the things I find amazing about... (See the whole review)

We the Living
We the Living by Ayn Rand

This is my favorite Ayn Rand novel. Not as overtly philosophical nor as monumental in scope as her later works, strictly as a novel qua novel, it excels those later works. And compared to the work of other authors, it is monumental. Rand tells us a love story set against the background of communist Russia in the 1920's. In part two, chapter 8, s...

The Fountainhead
The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand

This is Ayn Rand's first popular novel which brought her fame and a large following. "It is the story of a gifted young architect, his violent battle against conventional standards, and his explosive love affair with a beautiful woman who struggled to defeat him." (back cover) It shows man as a heroic being: Howard Roark, the perfect Egoist.

Atlas Shrugged
Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

The story of people finding the moral conviction to live their own lives, and of a man who stops the motor of the world to pave the way.  This is Ayn Rand's magnum opus. It is her comprehensive philosophical novel, dealing with each of the major categories of philosophy. This book lays down the basis of her entire philosophy in a compelling story. ...

The Art of Fiction: A Guide for Writers and Readers
The Art of Fiction: A Guide for Writers and Readers by Ayn Rand

In 1958, Ayn Rand, already the world-famous author of such bestselling books as "Atlas Shrugged" and "The Fountainhead", gave a private series of extemporaneous lectures in her own living room on the art of fiction. Tore Boeckmann and Leonard Peikoff for the first time now bring readers the edited transcript of these exciting personal statements. "... (See the whole review)
