It may not be esteemed by philosophers, but for a book to be in demand
and widely read since it's publication (1957?) says it is esteemed by
many others. If you knew that 7 out of 10 self-made and successful
people had read and valued Ayn Rand's philosophy and both the
Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged, maybe it wouldn't matter if the
philosophers felt it worthy or not.

[Host's Note: Can we connect this to Org Learning? What does Ayn Rand's
writing tell us about Org Learning? And, if the philosophers don't feel
it worthy, what do they say and what do we make of it? ...Rick]
