Summary:

Atlas Shrugged is the “second most influential book for Americans today” after the Bible, according to a joint survey of five thousand people conducted by the Library of Congress and the Book of the Month Club in 1991.
This is the story of a man who said that he would stop the motor of the world—and did. Is he a destroyer or a liberator? Why does he have to fight his battle not against his enemies but against those who need him most? Why does he fight his hardest battle against the woman he loves? You will learn the answers to these questions when you discover the reason behind the baffling events that wreak havoc on the lives of the amazing men and women in this remarkable book.
Tremendous in scope and breathtaking in its suspense, Atlas Shrugged is Ayn rand’s magnum opus, which launched an ideology and a movement. With the publication of this work in 1957, Rand gained an instant following and became a phenomenon. Atlas Shrugged emerged as a premier moral apologia for Capitalism, a defense that had an electrifying effect on millions of readers (and now listeners) who had never heard Capitalism defended in other than technical terms.
A New York Times bestseller. A 1958 National Book Award Finalist.

    I knew nothing of Ayn Rand when I read her book Anthem. I was profoundly stirred. That's when I found Atlas Shrugged. No book has ever moved me more.

    One of the best books I have ever read. There are plenty of reviews out there to describe the book, so I'll write a bit about the narration. The narrator was great, and I'm happy that he did the Fountainhead as well, which I am currently listening to. He does a great job of interpreting Rand's intention. You know which characters are to be loathed, and which to be loved by the tone of voice. Pleasing voice and easy to listen to. Unfortunately, the audio has some issues. You can tell where they stopped and picked back up due to change of EQ and volume, and you can hear speaking and noises in the background. But honestly, it's totally worth it to hear the Christopher Hurt version vs. the remastered one, which is actually 6-7 hours longer.
