Inspired by Ayn Rand's characters in Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead, penetrating profiles of both the innovators who move our world forward and those who seek to destroy the achievement of others John Galt, the fictional character from Ayn Rand's bestselling novel, Atlas Shrugged , has come to embody the individualist capitalist who acts in his own enlightened self interest, and in doing so lifts the world around him. Some of today's most successful CEOs, journalists, sports figures, actors, and thinkers have led their lives according to Galt's (i.e., Rand's) philosophy. Now, in I Am John Galt , these inspiring stories are gathered with the keen insight and analysis of well-known market commentator Donald Luskin and business writer Andrew Greta. Filled with exclusive interviews, profiles, and analyses of leading financial, business, and artistic stars who have based their lives, and careers, on the philosophy of the perennially popular Ayn Rand, this book both inspires and enlightens. On the other side are Rand's arch villains the power-seekers, parasites, and lunatics who would destroy that which the creators and builders make. Who are today's anti-heroes, fighting the creativity of the innovators? Contains insightful interviews, profiles, and analyses of the individuals who have lived by a Randian code to achieve greatness for themselves and others Offers a probing analysis of those who seek to destroy or undo the achievements of others from academics, pundits, and government bureaucrats to fraudsters who have wreaked havoc on our world Engaging and entertaining, I Am John Galt examines how the inspiration that is Galt thrives more than 50 years after publication of Atlas Shrugged. It will spark the interest of Ayn Rand fans everywhere, as well as those seeking a way to succeed in today's turbulent and confusing times.

Praise for I Am John Galt "Love her or hate her, Ayn Rand and I agree that free–market capitalism is the best way to prosperity. Her books show that capitalism and capitalists always triumph, no matter what the odds. Real life can work the same way if you have courage, integrity, and idealism. The real–life capitalist heroes that Don Luskin and Andrew Greta write about in this book prove it."—Larry Kudlow, CNBC′s The Kudlow Report "Our world today is just like Ayn Rand′s novels—it′s a battleground of ideas. We are watching play out a war of intrusive government, corrupt businessmen, and sellout economists versus the innovators, entrepreneurs, and just plain working people who make the world grow. Don Luskin and Andrew Greta report from the front lines, showing that there are still great people achieving big things, standing defiantly against the enemies of growth."—Arthur B. Laffer, founder and Chairman, Laffer Associates "Donald Luskin and Andrew Greta bring Ayn Rand′s novel Atlas Shrugged to life. Hank Rearden lives. Sadly, so too does Wesley Mouch."—Grover Glenn Norquist, President, Americans for Tax Reform
