I am not sure which board would be more appropriate, but I am also reading it. Got it last night and cannot put it down. About 60 pages in, wondering who the hell John Galt is.

Finished chapter 7 the other day. Easy read, but tough to digest the perception that it is more applicable today than when she wrote it.

This is really weird, but I ordered it and when it arrived in the mail yesterday, I was kind of sick to my stomach with anticipation to read it. I couldn't tell if I was excited to read it, or nervous.

This book has been known to change lives, Carl. My dad and I listened to it on the drive to Pittsburgh from College Station and he still talks about it. He was a democrat and supported Obama until he heard this book on CD.

I have a feeling it is going to have a major influence on my world view. Maybe that is the reason it makes me so nervous.

Read the abridged version. There's a *ton* of repetition in the full version. Not worth it.

The book only needed to be about a third as long as it is. If you've read the full version, you'll likely agree.

What kind of weak minded person changes their world outlook based on a book? I'm more than confident in my mastery of knowledge in all subjects.

I'm 3/4 of the way through it and it is amazing. Best book I've read, bar none. It should be mandatory reading in school as far as I'm concerned.

Mine is 1069 pages. I don't think it is abridged. I think abridging is garbage anyway.

That book was really disappointing. When they said that John Galt "stopped the motor of the world", I thought it was going to be a SciFi book about stopping the rotation of Earth's liquid outer core.

John Galt...I was talking about that guy tonight with my brother's. Didn't he write a book about the United States falling apart just like it is now? Something along those lines I think....

if one reads the book and how people in it refer to john galt, they refer to him in much the same manner as you did
