Reviews

Praise for Leonard Peikoff

"Offers a truly revolutionary idea...The book is clear, tight, disciplined, beautifully structured, and brilliantly reasoned. Its style is clear and hard as crystal-and as sparkling... As to my personal reaction, I can express it best by paraphrasing a line from Atlas Shrugged: 'It's so wonderful to see a great, new, crucial achievement which is not mine!'"-Ayn Rand

"Extraordinarily perceptive...frightening insights...Everyone concerned with the collectivist trend in today's world should read this book."-Alan Greenspan

"A fascinating weave of German history, philosophic determinism, and Objectivist polemic."-Chicago Tribune

"A revelation...Peikoff is an extraordinary communicator...He brings the most difficult intellectual ideas within the grasp of the general reader."-Detroit Free Press
