The question you should ask is "Who is John Galt?"

I've never read Rand, looks like Atlas Shrugged will be a good read.

It's almost scary reading it today, with how our nation is going.

Keep in mind it's a bit over 1000 pages. She can ramble in parts, so feel free to skip through some of her longer diatribes. Parts can be dry, but stick with it. It is scary the similarities to the current situation. Issues in Washington, NY, and Colorado are all part of the main focus of the story.

I don't agree with her entire philosophy, but it's hard to argue with some of her position.

The Fountainhead is a good read too. Anthem is an interesting novella as well.

Unfortunately they haven't made a good movie on either.
