Publisher Description

The revolutionary literary vision that sowed the seeds of Objectivism, Ayn Rand's groundbreaking philosophy, and brought her immediate worldwide acclaim.

This modern classic is the story of intransigent young architect Howard Roark, whose integrity was as unyielding as granite...of Dominique Francon, the exquisitely beautiful woman who loved Roark passionately, but married his worst enemy...and of the fanatic denunciation unleashed by an enraged society against a great creator. As fresh today as it was then, Rand’s provocative novel presents one of the most challenging ideas in all of fiction—that man’s ego is the fountainhead of human progress...

“A writer of great power. She has a subtle and ingenious mind and the capacity of writing brilliantly, beautifully, bitterly...This is the only novel of ideas written by an American woman that I can recall.”—The New York Times

Absurd Price

I was under the impression that Apple had negotiated a better deal for the iBookstore--that they would be getting prices from the publishers that were to be no worse than those offered on other ebook platforms.

This book is $6 on the Kindle.

Apparently I am mistaken regarding the "most favored nation status" of the iBookstore. But regardless, I won't be buying this dreadfully overpriced book here.

Too expensive. Amazing book

I find it highly entertaining reading the comments which suggest that you should not buy the book on moral grounds. Ignorance is apparently rampant and possibly contagious. People are simply afraid of social Darwinism.

Greed

Thank you, Free Market, for allowing me to purchase this book for MUCH cheaper elsewhere.
I don't know where Leonard Peikoff gets the nerve charging so much for a digital download. He is a proven liar and thief, just ask the Library of Congress.
