Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

Rand's 1200-page novel is a hymn of praise to the concept of rugged individualism, personified in John Galt. This polemic for Rand's philosophy of "rational self-interest" has been a steady seller since it was published in 1957.

This is the story of a man who said that he would stop the motor of the world-and did. 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 women he loved? 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.
