Ayn Rand is one person who has had a huge effect on me throughout my life and continues to change the way I think. Most of my friends can tell you how much i love her books and theories so I figured I would share with everyone who might not know me quite so well. As a very small idea of why I like her books here is a roughly 60 page book, one of the first she wrote called "Anthem". I very much stand behind the ideas of this book and what it stands for by itself, forget the author and what she intended by the book. This one is much more approachable than her other books which tend to range from 600 to 1200 pages.
Here is the link to the download page at Project Gutenberg where you can download the book for free in several different formats or simply view it in plain text. (If viewed in plain text scroll down until you see "Part One")
