In the years between her first public lecture in 1961 and her last in 1981, Ayn Rand spoke and wrote about topics as different as education, medicine, Vietnam, and the death of Marilyn Monroe. In The Voice of Reason, these pieces are gathered together in book form for the first time. Written in the last decades of Rand’s life, they reflect a life lived on principle, a probing mind, and a passionate intensity. With them are five essays by Leonard Peikoff, Rand’s longtime associate and literary executor. The work concludes with Peikoff’s epilogue, “My Thirty Years with Ayn Rand: An Intellectual Memoir”, which answers the question “What was Ayn Rand really like?” Important reading for all thinking individuals, this collection communicates not only Rand’s singular worldview, but also the penetrating cultural and political analysis to which it gives rise.

    " I love a lot of Ayn's philosophy, but reading this kind of made me wonder how much of a paragon of human achievement the guy that wrote this thought she was. Her comments on why a woman shouldn't be president were particularly amusing. *cough* Hilary sucks! *cough* "

    " This was my first exposure to Rand, and I found it to be a very accessible school of thought. I'm interested in exploring other books by Rand, mainly Atlas Shrugged, to better understand her Objectivist philosophy. "

    " Ayn Rand's construct on Objectivism is a bit ahead of her time. These essays are thought provoking and a brilliant read. "
