Atlas Shrugged

Finally read Atlas Shrugged, by Ayn Rand while I was on holidays. You see it listed as a must read in many business and investing books so I thought I should read it.

It did not disappoint. It is one of those books that you miss when you're done.

My only criticism is that Rand is one of those authors that feels the need to use a thousand words to describe something when ten would do the job.

If you read you learn to skim.

That said it is a great book, a wonderful case for capitalism and a dire warning for government bureaucracy that attempts to control it.

It was written in 1957 but stands today as relevant as ever.

Give it a read.
