Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand


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 who had never heard capitalism defended in other than technical terms.
