a selfish evil woman revealed. the tone of the book is neutral but her thoughts and actions speak for themselves. all republicans and libertarians should have to read this.

A thorough whitewash of the nastiness of Rand's personality. Famous hysterical outbursts ie at the public debate between Albert Ellis and Nathaniel Branden are omitted. Her effusive admiration for the sadistic murderer is simply glossed over. An honest and insightful biography of this influential sociopath has yet to be written.
