Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

Ayn Rand's epochal novel, first published in 1957, has been a bestseller for more than four decades as well as an intellectual landmark. It 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 woman he loved? What is the world's motor — and the motive power of every man?
