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."

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!

I got interested in the book after seeing the two films. I am reading the entire book to compare the movie to the book. It is a long book, but I would recommend it to serious readers.

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.
