Atlas Shrugged – by Ayn Rand

I am not sure if this was the second or the third time I have read this book. The first time I read it was when I was eighteen or nineteen and it felt as fresh in my mind now as if I had read it only a year ago. This book is the expression of my most deeply held beliefs. I will grant that the action occasionally slows down due to the exposition, but sticking with it to the end is more than worth it.

There are those who will not be able to stand to read this book. If you are one of those people, you will know it early on. You will quit reading it, which is a shame because it is someone like you who needs to be exposed to these ideas. It may take a while to finish this book, but that’s okay. Read a little every day and let it all sink in. It could change your life.
