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, originally published in 1957, retains its relevance for the diagnosis of the ills of Western society in 2014, the poison of postmodernist nihilism, and beyond. It is a prelude to her solution of said problems, her philosophy of Objectivism. It should be read and understood by every thinking person in Western societies. Who is John Galt? It should be all of us!
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.
