RATING: Suitable for adults and young adults with an interest in the philosophy of capitalism and one of its greatest proponents, Ayn Rand.
In a scrap heap within an abandoned factory, the greatest invention in history lies dormant and unused. By what fatal error has its value gone unrecognized?
In defense of those greatest of human qualities that have made civilization possible, one man sets out to show what would happen to the world if all the heroes of innovation and industry went on strike. Is he a destroyer or a liberator?
Tremendous in scope and breathtaking in its suspense, Atlas Shrugged is Ayn Rands magnum opus, an electrifying moral defense of capitalism and free enterprise.
