It suprised me that Google couldn't find any ebook versions of Atlas Shrugged but my guess is that it exists. (and it should )

Does anybody have it ?

Why would the copyright holder give it away for free when so many people still buy it?

Somehow, a version of "The Fountainhead" exists.
Anyway, I read the book, I just need an ebook version for a different purpose.

Btw, did we just celebrate her 100th birthday ? It raises a question that who hold the copyright of her book now ?

Most likely Leonard Peikoff who heads the Ayn Rand Institute. Ayn turned everything over to him to benefit the Institute AFAIK. Atlas Shrugged still sells quite well, the last I heard.

Whoever holds the copyright to Atlas Shrugged should release it to the public domain as a service to humanity.

Could not find the Fountainhead, or Atlas Shrugged, but for Rand aficionados out there, you can download "Anthem", for $6.99.

Either that, or obliterate it . . . which would be a much greater service . . .

Oh Setanta, I wouldn't say that.

I still have a fond place in my heart for Atlas Shrugged from my early teen years.

I have long since outgrown the philosophy...But, as far as dogmatic speeches go, the speech on money is one of the best.

whoever has the copyright should squeeze every last nickel out of that copyright, in keeping with Ms. Rand's veneration of self-interest and capitalism.

Atlas Shrugged is not a book to be tossed aside lightly, as Dorothy Parker said.

She also said that you can lead a horticulture, but you can't make her think--perhaps she had Miss Rand in mind . . . Rand was doin' fine when she was a newspaper photographer, she seriously deluded herself, however, when she decided she could write (all her stuff is third-rate melodramatic crap), and even more when she decided she had original ideas to peddle.

Walter- The reference you cited is an E Book of a "Cliff's Notes" of Atlas Shrugged. Cliff's notes are guides to literature for students who don't want to work to hard to really learn a piece of literature, so it's spoon fed to them.

Cliff's notes are a way to get to know about a work, without ever reading it.
