Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book Atlas Shrugged:

A future without innovators.

My favorite Ayn Rand quote from the book:

"Money will not buy intelligence for the fool, or admiration for the coward, or respect for the incompetent."

Questions I pondered while reading Atlas Shrugged:

Why can't we keep what we earn?

Is it fair to pay people what they are worth?

My review of Atlas Shrugged:

Self-responsibility is such an important topic.

So many verbose soliloquies.

So many details.
