Burns’ probing and well written biography provides the reader with a balanced, insightful and at times disturbing vision into the life of one of most influential thinkers of the 20th century. Descriptions of Ayn Rand’s life and works tend to fall into one of two categories: the ones that come from her critics usually amount to ridiculous straw-man attacks, while her admirers have a tendency to downplay or even ignore her flaws, even when they are not die hard Objectivists. Because of this, Ayn Rand is rarely given the benefit of the objective (no pun intended), worts and all treatment that most important figures can expect from historians. Jennifer Burns has accomplished this task brilliantly, and for that reason I say no one can be truly educated in Objectivism until they have this fantastic book.
I learned more about Ayn Rand than I ever thought I needed to know. Well written book. Expertly narrated.
Example of a biography where the writer has already a bias. In this case negativity is clearly seen.
