What is your favorite book by Ayn Rand and why?

Reading Atlas Shrugged was my first encounter with the mind of Ayn Rand. I found in her work confirmation of many of my own ideas about the nature of mysticism, epistemology, & economics. She challenged for me the notion of morality as sacrifice.

How did you first learn about Ayn Rand and Objectivism?

I first learned about Ayn Rand by listening to several excerpts of John Galt's speech on Youtube. In April of 2009 I began reading Atlas Shrugged. Soon after I moved quickly through Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal & The Virtue of Selfishness.

Introduction

I read Atlas Shrugged and became interested in learning more about Ayn Rand's philosophy of Objectivism. I joined NTOS in November of 2009 to meet other admirers of her work and further my understanding of her philosophy.
