fantastic story-telling, improbable and rivetting,

This review is from: Atlas Shrugged (Penguin Modern Classics) (Paperback)
Fantastic innsight into the world of capitalism, focussing on Ayn Rand's heroic entrepreneurs, scentists and miners and railway pioneers in early 20th centure USA and contrastic their ambitious ideas for progress and achievement with the resentments and jealousies of other 'less-enlightened' folk. A riveting read, as much for the social attitudes highlighted as for the story, and the best defence of (or argument for) capitalism (and against communism) I ahve every come across.
