The Virtue of Selfishness: A New Concept of Egoism (CD Audio Book)
By Ayn Rand
Unabridged, professional reading.
Read by C.M. Hebert
Ayn Rand here sets forth the moral principles of Objectivism, the philosophy that holds man's life - the life proper to a rational being - as the standard of moral values and regards altruism as incompatible with man's nature, with the creative requirements of his survival, and with a free society.
