Product Description

Review

''Countless individuals working to secure liberty have found inspiration in the works of Ayn Rand. With her unique ability to depict heroism, idealism, and romance behind the creativity of the individual, Rand inspires readers to come to the defense of free minds and free markets.'' --Chip Mellor, Institute for Justice

''Narrator Scott Brick takes listeners on a journey so extraordinary they'll hardly notice the book's length. While his performance offers little in the way of theatrics, Brick is capable of garnering sympathy and, perhaps most importantly, devout attention for Rand's plot and characters. On the surface, Brick's voice is a cool, unrelenting force determined to capture every facet of Rand's complex story. But amid his calm and collected delivery, he taps into a more colorful emotional palette that will keep listeners involved. Brick's subtle delivery holds far more than meets the ear.'' --AudioFile

''[A] vibrant and powerful novel of ideas.'' --New York Herald Tribune

''Ayn Rand is destined to rank in history as the outstanding novelist and most profound philosopher of the twentieth century.'' --New York Daily Mirror

''Atlas Shrugged is not merely a novel. It is also--or may I say--first of all--a cogent analysis of the evils that plague our society.'' --Ludwig von Mises, philosopher and economist

Product Description

This is the story of a man who said that he would stop the motor of the world—and did. Was he a destroyer or the greatest of liberators? Why did he have to fight his battle, not against his enemies, but against those who needed him most, and his hardest battle against the woman he loved? What is the world’s motor—and the motive power of every man? You will know the answer to these questions when you discover the reason behind the baffling events that play havoc with the lives of the characters in this story.
Tremendous in its scope, this novel presents an astounding panorama of human life—from the productive genius who becomes a worthless playboy—to the great steel industrialist who does not know that he is working for his own destruction—to the philosopher who becomes a pirate—to the composer who gives up his career on the night of his triumph—to the woman who runs a transcontinental railroad—to the lowest track worker in her Terminal tunnels.You must be prepared, when you read this novel, to check every premise at the root of your convictions. This is a mystery story, not about the murder—and rebirth—of man’s spirit. It is a philosophical revolution, told in the form of an action thriller of violent events, a ruthlessly brilliant plot structure and an irresistible suspense. Do you say this is impossible? Well, that is the first of your premises to check.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book to live by 29 May 2014

Gripping plot with a philosophy for everyone. No flaws. Being a work of the mid 1900s exaggerating detail is abundantly vsible. But the twists never tend to stop till the end. (The longest book I've read by far).

5.0 out of 5 stars still relevant even after all these years 12 August 2013
By nirbhay
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
heard about this book from a friend, as i don't really read, many 1000+ page books, so I kind of started half heartily and initially around 100 pages it didn't seem very great as it was building the background for the book, a sort of fictional world (for me at-least, it may be relevant at the time when it was written). But after that, just book is just awesome, it explains why we should try to work hard and for WHOM we work when we open a factory or invent a new machine. Also it gives a biggest message that HAVING MONEY IS NOT BAD AT ALL and if you have put your heart in something you deserve to be paid for that.

When you see publication time of this was novel, you will realize, around the world, nothing has changed at all.

I will recommend this book to anyone who holds a job, in any field, after reading this book, you will definitely learn a thing or two.

if you saw Atlas, the giant who holds the world on his shoulders, if you saw that he stood, blood running down his chest, his knees buckling, his arms trembling but still trying to hold the world aloft with the last of his strength, and the greater his effort the heavier the world bore down on his shoulderswhat would you tell him to do? I . . . dont know. What . . . could he do? What would you tell him? To shrug. &quote;
