From the Inside Flap

Who is John Galt?

It's been both a cry in the dark and a call to arms for generations of readers of Ayn Rand's great novels—which brilliantly portray a world like ours, a world of both great achievement and great crisis. This book answers that question. I Am John Galt introduces you to the real-life titans who've lived their lives like Rand's fictional heroes and the malefactors who've lived like her fictional villains.

Steve Jobs: he reinvented computers, movies, music, and telephones—just because it was cool

Paul Krugman: he corrupted economics and cheapened public discourse for the sake of partisan politics

John Allison: he built one of America's strongest banks—by having 30,000 employees read Atlas Shrugged

Angelo Mozilo: the predatory lender who used taxpayer money to inflate the subprime housing bubble

Bill Gates: he became the richest man in the world—and his government almost destroyed him

Barney Frank: the populist politician who turned Fannie Mae into a weapon of mass economic destruction

T. J. Rodgers: the bad-boy high-tech CEO—who speaks out against corporate welfare and political correctness

Alan Greenspan: Ayn Rand's lifelong friend who became an economic czar—the ultimate sellout or a double-agent for libertarianism?

Milton Friedman: he made economics into a science—and showed that capitalism and freedom are inseparable

Written by well-known market commentator Donald Luskin and business writer Andrew Greta, I Am John Galt is filled with incisive and entertaining profiles and exclusive interviews. Let yourself be inspired as the characters of Ayn Rand's world come to life. Read and learn—you, too, can say, "I am John Galt."

From the Back Cover

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
