From the Quicklet on Atlas Shrugged:

In the world of the near future, the United States has been overcome by a sweeping moral malaise, caused by a national embrace of Socialism and Social Welfare. In this Anti-Capitalist atmosphere, leading industrialists and scientists have been mysteriously disappearing. Despite repeated denials by the highest levels of government, rumors and half-truths point to a conspiracy to remove the best and brightest minds from the reach of society. The average man on the street sums up this growing urban legend in a single question: “Who is John Galt?”

Dagny Taggart is a driven, focused New York railroad executive who is vehemently opposed to the creeping disintegration of private property rights and individual liberty. She along with her married lover, Henry Rearden, ( whose development of a new, super alloy called Rearden Metal allows Taggart Transcontinental to become one of the last efficient companies remaining in the U.S.) decide to to resist the forces of those they call the Looters, by upholding the principles of selfishness, profit and individual achievement. To this they embark on the only type of rebellion available to them, namely living solely for the advancement of their material, business and personal interests. They are opposed in these ventures by the majority of polite society, including Dagny’s brother, James Taggart.

From the Quicklet on The Fountainhead:

Nearing his graduation from architecture school at the Stanton Institute of Technology, Howard Roark is expelled by the Dean, who fears his designs are much too modern. Rejected by most of the top firms for failing to graduate, he luckily finds work with the disgraced but immensely talented architect Henry Cameron. Cameron, unfortunately, cannot take the stress of society’s disapproval and eventually retires. Roark, unwilling to compromise his vision for clients, cannot find work and leaves for the Francon granite quarry in Connecticut.

Peter Keating, on the other hand, does graduate from Stanton despite mediocre talent, and immediately finds work with famed architect Guy Francon at his New York City firm. Through deceit and manipulation, he becomes a partner in just a few short years and seems like he has built himself a happy and successful life.

Francon’s daughter, Dominique, is repulsed by society and its obsession with the mediocre. She retreats to her family’s granite quarry and is surprised to discover a sudden and passionate attraction to Roark. A few nights later, Roark enters her house and rapes her before leaving without saying a word. Dominique admits to herself that that was exactly what she wanted from Roark.

From the Quicklet on The Virtue of Selfishness:

A man drowns

Let’s say that a man is in danger of drowning and you are the only one around who can help. The moral course of action would be to assist only if the danger to one’s self is minimal. It is a sign of lowered self-esteem to deem a stranger’s life just as valuable as your own by risking yours to save theirs.

This would not be the case if the drowning person were someone you loved deeply. In this scenario, risking your life to save this person is not seen as a sacrifice at all. The reason: because saving a loved one is rooted in a certain selfishness; no one wants to watch a loved one drown knowing they could have done somethi

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Not actual books 11 septembre 2012
Par Ben V Hoff - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
Maybe it's me but I expected to get actual Ayn Rand works. Instead I paid $10 to Cliff Notes-like summary. IMO, it is not clearly stated that this is not actual Ayn Rand works. I thought Quicklet referred to being able to get 3 Ayn Rand works quickly and easily, bundled. If I had an interest in someone else' opinion about this before I read it, I might have a better opinion of this, which I won't read. In any case it is not clear from the description that this is not the actual Ayn Rand work. I hope other aren't embarrassed to say they made the same mistake of not looking very carefully at what we buy. I'll let you know if I was able to return it or not, which would change everything, probably.

This order was refunded immediately. So my problem is really not a problem. I'm not sure what to do with this review.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Thought it was a book bundle not a collection of notes. 15 octobre 2012

As many others have stated, I purchased this "Quicklet" set without realizing it was not a collection of 4 books but rather a collection of commentary, synopsis, etc. I read a one-page summary of Atlas Shrugged before realizing this. There goes any surprise or intrigue when I pick up the real thing....

This is NOT the book. It is just a plot summary and commentary. Not worth it. And it was not clear from the listing in Amazon that this wasn't the actual book. Very misleading.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Quicklet Bundle gives good Reviews 22 décembre 2012
Par jmcneill - Publié sur Amazon.com

The Quicklet Bundle gives a nice overview of Rand's works. The reviewers interject their opinions and insights on the Rand works, but some are light or off-track. Others are fine and well written. The hyperlinks are nice add-ons. Overall, this is a good primer for those being introduced to Rand, but will disappoint those already familiar with her works.

This is a very good synopsis of Atlas Shrugged, The Fountainhead, The Virtue of selfishness. I would recommend it to anyone interested in reading Ayn Rand.
