Tremendous in scope, breathtaking in its suspense, "Atlas Shrugged" stretches the boundaries further than any book you have ever read. It is a mystery, not about the murder of a man's body, but about the murder - and rebirth - of man's spirit.Hide synopsis

This book should be required reading for everybody!! For a book published over half a century ago it it accurately reflects what is happening in this country today. The "1984" of our generation! Read it!!
This story written in another era (the 50s) is so relevent to today it is almost frightening.
If you care about our freedom and what is happening to it you will be spellbound by this story.
I recommend this book to everyone who cares about our freedom/republic.
After the Bible, Atlas Shrugged has got to be the most important book ever written. If you haven't got the time to digest the whole book, just read John Galt's speech (in the chapter "This is John Galt Speaking"). The book, or at least John Galt's speech, should be required reading in every introductory philosophy course.
