Description and Biographies

4th Most Downloaded Adult Fiction Audiobook from Libraries

     A Hollywood re-make of this movie about the rise and fall of the railroad industry, based on this book, was just released in 2011.
     What if all the genius and leaders of innovation and progress went on strike?
     In defense of those greatest of human qualities that have made civilization possible, one man sets out to show what would happen to the world if all the heroes of innovation and industry went on strike.
     Exemplified by the fall of the railroad industry, once a giant in the country,
     Atlas Shrugged
denounces about the dangers of too much government intervention that can lead to many of the very financial crisis the country is experiencing today.
   
  Atlas Shrugged is a compelling mystery, but it is also a story with a profound and original philosophy that provides answers to the problems we’re facing in our world right now.
     Many people feel inspired after reading the novel, and that is a major reason why the book is still in such high demand.
     Tremendous in scope and breathtaking in its suspense,
     Atlas Shrugged is Ayn Rand’s Magnum Opus, an electrifying moral defense of capitalism and free enterprise -- a defense that had an electrifying effect on millions of readers—and now listeners—who had never heard capitalism defended in other than technical terms.

     New York Herald Tribune: "A vibrant and powerful novel of ideas."
     New York Daily Mirror:
"Ayn Rand is destined to rank in history as the outstanding novelist and most profound philosopher of the twentieth century."
     AudioFile:
"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. Bricks subtle delivery holds far more than meets the ear."

Ayn Rand

     Was born in Russia (1905-1982), graduated from the University of Leningrad, and in 1926 came to the United States where she was naturalized.
     Her first novel, We the Living, was published in 1936. With the publication of The Fountainhead in 1943, she achieved a spectacular and enduring success and her unique philosophy, objectivism, gained a worldwide following.
