Harry Binswanger, Capitalism Magazine Alan Greenspan |Atlas Shrugged movie |Atlas Shrugged |Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal |The Fountainhead |The Virtue of Selfishness |Objectivist author | Book review: I Am John Galt, by Donald Luskin and Andrew Greta.Judging this book is rather like judging the movie version of Atlas: both could have been better but both also could have been so much worse. By the standard of what an Objectivist intellectual would write, the book is thin and, at times, offensive in its comparison of people to Ayn Rand’s unique, grand-scale, life-loving heroes. (E.g., as creative as Steve Jobs surely is, there’s no way on God’s green earth that he is remotely comparable to Howard Roark). On the other hand, by the standard of what you would expect to see in such a book, I Am John Galt is surprisingly good.
