About the book:

The book received a number of reviews at the time of its release, although significantly fewer than there were for Rand's novels.In The New York Times Book Review, philosopher Sidney Hook called it a "unique combination of tautology and extravagant absurdity."In a negative review for Esquire, Gore Vidal said Rand "must be read to be believed" and that "Her 'philosophy' is nearly perfect in its immorality". Rand bibliographer Mimi Reisel Gladstein called Rand's title essay the "major attraction for those who have already read the novels".Historian James T. Baker said the essay "represents Rand's first step from fiction to public philosophy," and called the view of history it presents "intriguing and creative if a bit fantastic." Biographer Anne Heller described at as "a mixture of historical parable and madcap fairy tale", and said it began Rand's "almost fanatical crusade" against German philosopher Immanuel Kant, who Rand describes as a highly negative influence on modern philosophy.
