intellectual mystery story that integrates ethics, metaphysics, epistemology, politics, economics, and sex.

Set in a near-future U.S.A. whose economy is collapsing as a result of the mysterious disappearance of leading innovators and industrialists, 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...to the philosopher who becomes a pirate...to the woman who runs a transcontinental railroad...to the lowest track worker in her train tunnels.

Peopled by larger-than-life heroes and villains, charged with towering questions of good and evil, Atlas Shrugged is a philosophical revolution told in the form of an action thriller.

  • This is by far the best book ever written.I first found it in the early 1960's and have read it more than a dozen times over the years. I own a leather bound edition, a gift from my wife. Whenever the world seems to not make sense, I reread it again.

  • Wear your glasses

    The book is a classic and a great read. This particular printing of it, however, is very difficult to read due to tiny print size. Further, the pages fall out rather easily. Spend a little extra to get a more sturdily constructed, easier to read copy of this book.

    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Flimsy

  • Minuscule Print

    I do not wear glasses and at last eye exam had 20/20 vision. However, opening this book make me feel like I'd had a vision reversal. I had others in my home give me their opinion of print size and all, with eyes squinted, trying to read from this book felt the same. The print is exceedingly small. Can I read it? Yes. Is it a chore to do so? Profound yes to that question. I understand that Overstock is not the publisher but do you not check items prior to offering them for sale.? I would have returned this book but charges for shipping both ways with nothing to show for it makes little to no sense. Suggest whomever is responsible for checking such items before offering them to the public needs to do a better job.
