Who is John Galt? This is the immortal question posed at the beginning of Ayn Rand’s masterpiece. The answer is the astonishing story of a man who said he would stop the motor of the world—and did.

Rand dramatizes the main tenets of Objectivism, her philosophy of rational selfishness. She explores the ramifications of her radical thinking in a world that penalizes human intelligence and integrity.

Part mystery, part thriller, part philosophical inquiry, part volatile love affair, Atlas Shrugged is the book that confirmed Ayn Rand as one of the most popular novelists and most respected thinkers of the twentieth century.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Ron | 8/7/2016

    " This is story was written in the fifties and is amazingly accurate in the way our political and social/economic system is unfolding today. The story telling is well done and entertaining with some dramatization of the characters added to enhance the experience. A companion book to this is 'The Fountainhead' which I also recommend. "

    " Scary to see how this relates to how society is today... "

    " the first 12 hr of listening was lengthy, stretched mostly descriptive. i don't think i can survive the remaining 52 hr. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Erin Sorensen | 2/8/2014

    " My only complaint with this book is the fifty-page speech at the end where Ayn Rand spells out her beliefs. While her opinion is valid, I highly disagreed with her when she discussed religion and God. But, disagreements aside, Rand is a genius at pointing out the "utopia of greed" and how the world as we know it changes when Atlas shrugs. "
