Reviewer: Nora Ephron, (New York Times Book Review)

"When 'The Fountainhead' was published, almost every critic that reviewed it missed a point--that the welfare of society must always be subordinate to individual's self-interest. Rather than dealing with this theme of ego, most of the reviewers treated it as a Big Book, and treated it badly."

Reviewer: Anthony Lane, (New Yorker)

"As for Ayn Rand's 'The Fountainhead', seven hundred and fifty-four pages of pure beef, it could stop a tank. From what I gather, Ayn Rand could stop a tank."
