At every college in America, every Young Republican Club & Demosthenian Society of pseudo-intellectuals revere the yuppie know-nothing brainwashing of Ayn Rand because it goes hand-in-hand with their ultimate agenda.
I also had The Fountainhead when I was in high school & thought I was gonna be a stockbroker. But after reading three of Rand's (aformentioned) books, I never read it. I gave all those back to the used book store for trade. It's supposedly her best book.
