Ayn is classic stuff. Sure it lacks nuance, but that is largely the point and long lasting appeal of the novels (I like Fountainhead better personally). Her Utopia isn't achievable, but the outline is worthwhile.

And, as a bonus, you avoid the terrible Randian prose.

No, no, no that is part of the appeal of her books. The passage highlighted earlier in the thread is just great stuff - even if it does go on and on and on and on. This started as a thread on Ben Graham - talk about painful prose - yikes.

(and since we are on his board - I very much enjoyed Hewitt's writing style - writing is easy to do poorly, and both difficult and underappreciated when done well).

Aside - did I buy my car from you? Christmas motors in MA?
