Publisher's Summary

Inspired by Ayn Rand's characters in Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead, penetrating profiles of both the innovators who move our world forward and those who seek to destroy the achievement of others...
John Galt, the fictional character from Ayn Rand's best-selling novel Atlas Shrugged has come to embody the individualist capitalist who acts in his own enlightened self interest, and in doing so lifts the world around him. Some of today's most successful CEOs, journalists, sports figures, actors, and thinkers have led their lives according to Galt's (i.e., Rand's) philosophy.
Now, in I Am John Galt, these inspiring stories are gathered with the keen insight and analysis of well-known market commentator Donald Luskin and business writer Andrew Greta. Filled with exclusive interviews, profiles, and analyses of leading financial, business, and artistic stars who have based their lives, and careers, on the philosophy of the perennially popular Ayn Rand, this audiobook both inspires and enlightens. On the other side are Rand's arch villains - the power-seekers, parasites, and lunatics who would destroy that which the creators and builders make. Who are today's anti-heroes, fighting the creativity of the innovators?

Contains insightful interviews, profiles, and analyses of the individuals who have lived by a Randian code to achieve greatness for themselves and others
Offers a probing analysis of those who seek to destroy or undo the achievements of others - from academics, pundits, and government bureaucrats to fraudsters who have wreaked havoc on our world

Engaging and entertaining, I Am John Galt examines how the inspiration that is Galt thrives more than 50 years after publication of Atlas Shrugged. It will spark the interest of Ayn Rand fans everywhere, as well as those seeking a way to succeed in today's turbulent and confusing times.

Another Right Wing Hack Job

Would you try another book from Donald Luskin and Andrew Greta and/or Alex Hyde-White?

No, probably not.

What was most disappointing about Donald Luskin and Andrew Greta ’s story?

It was reviewed as an inspirational expose on business leaders that follow free market ideas and principles. The first chapter was but after that it went downhill. The author used his book, and my money, to lambaste people he didn't agree with or like. I didn't need to finish as he foreshadowed the other hack jobs coming up later in the book. For that I was grateful.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

1st chapter on Steve Jobs was good.

This is the story of real life heroes and villains. It shows what lead to the housing market crash in the US, and why an unholily alliance between politicians and business is wrong.

Steve Jobs
