Description

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.

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 a liberator? Why does he fight his hardest battle not against his enemies, but against the woman he loves?

Tremendous in scope, breathtaking in its suspense, Atlas Shrugged is Ayn Rand's magnum opus and launched an ideology and a movement. With the publication of this work in 1957, Rand gained an instant following and became a phenomenon. Atlas Shrugged emerged as a premier moral apologia for capitalism, a defense that had an electrifying effect on millions of readers (and now listeners) who had never heard capitalism defended in other than technical terms.

Atlas Shrugged

I'm so glad Atlas Shrugged is available as an audio book because it's a wonderful novel that I encourage everyone to read, but its length may intimidate some readers. It's nice to be able to sit back and listen to this story that features very intriguing characters and defends the rights of the individual. It has its flaws (like the scene in which Fransisco D'Anconia goes on, and on, and on about money at a party; if that happened in real life people would be rolling their eyes and walking away from him) but I love this book and appreciate the work Ayn Rand did.
