Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
A gorgeously written book. This book is very idealistic and adamant about the place of the rational and productive people in the world. The book says that society will collapse without the intellectuals, industrialists, and innovators. That these people are indeed "the motors of the world".
This is a book that speaks mainly of Ayn Rand's philosophy of Objectivism which can be summarized as being: "...the concept of man as a heroic being, with his own happiness as the moral purpose of his life, with productive achievement as his noblest activity, and reason as his only absolute."
A very thick book, 1074 exciting pages, that sucks you into the fantasy lives of Dagny Taggart, Hank Rearden, and Francisco d'Anconia. It also answers the famous question: "Who is John Galt?"
A book to be experienced. Thought provoking. A true classic.
This is a book for everyone.
