If yer into politics. You gotta read Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand.
I won't be putting Atlas Shrugged
on the list. It wasn't the best of Rand's book and completely lacked subtlety. It was like getting hit over the head again and again with a Randian message club. BTW, Shane
has a similar message but Schaefer doesn't slam you over the head with speeches that go on for dozens of pages.
p.s. The Fountainhead was a much better book but I won't be assigning that one either. But don't worry, down the road I will be assigning a Rand book but it will surprise you, especially since the characters in this book seem REAL.
