    The best way to understand Rand's message in this book is to simply close it, and beat yourself over the head with it as hard as possible.

    This book, as much as I detest it, is actually rather useful. Those who have read it tend to be those whom I most especially desire to avoid.

    Ayn Rand makes my eyes hurt. She does this, not by the length of her six hundred thousand word diatribe, but rather by the frequency with which she causes me to roll them. Do you want to know what I’ve learned after spending nearly two months reading Ayn Rand’s crap? Here’s a brief ru...
