Atlas Shrugged #1 on Amazon’s Bestseller List
Washington, D.C., March 27, 2009--Atlas Shrugged, which ranked #3 in the U.S. Literature and Fiction category merely a week ago, has now climbed to #1!
According to Dr. Yaron Brook, executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute, “The explosion of interest in Atlas Shrugged and Ayn Rand’s ideas that we’re seeing right now is remarkable. As the United States’ economy deteriorates and the free market takes the blame for the disastrous consequences of government policies, Americans are increasingly turning to Atlas Shrugged, whose parallels to the current crisis are truly breathtaking.
“Anyone genuinely concerned with the expanding role of government and the accelerating erosion of freedom in this country should pick up a copy of Atlas and read it. In Atlas they will find the deeper philosophical explanation for what is going on today and, more important, they will find the revolutionary philosophy needed to guide us to a brighter future.”
Yaron Brook is executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute.
