The foundations of capitalism are being battered by a flood of altruism, which is the cause of the modern world’s collapse. This is the view of Ayn Rand, a view so radically opposed to prevailing attitudes that it constitutes a major philosophic revolution. In her series of essays, she presents her stand on the persecution of big business, the causes of war, the default of conservatism, and the evils of altruism.
This collection of twenty-six essays includes twenty by Ayn Rand as well as three essays by Alan Greenspan, two by Nathaniel Branden, and one by Robert Hessen. These essays are a challenging look at modern society by some of America’s most provocative intellectuals.

Anna Fields is marvelous in her reading of this Ayn Rand classic. It's a shame she hasn't done all of Ayn Rand's works as she captures Rand's authorial voice and tone perfectly.
Voice is superb.
This narrator is spot on. I listened to this 6 or 7 years ago, and it was the first time I noticed how great the narration of a book could really be. She captures the essence of the text and author. This book and particularly this reading are highly recommended.
