I have heard many people say a certain book or movie changed their lives. I had personally never experienced anything of that sort…until now.
It has taken me a long time to get around to reading it and it has taken me long to read it…because each word of it is helping me define the philosophy I want to live my life by. Yes, this is a book that is changing my life. It is changing me. It is leading me towards a stern but liberating way of living life, where everything is clearly defined and there are no contradictions. That is what makes it so excruciatingly simple and complex at the same time. It’s simple because, once defined, the code by which you will live the rest of your life is set by you, complex because it involves unlearning many things, grasping the magnitude of the brilliant philosophy set forth by Ayn Rand in her magnificent piece of work, Atlas Shrugged, and choosing to live your life in a manner you had not ever considered.
