I finished this great little review of the subject epic tome. A friend suggested this and CliffsNotes: FOUNTAINHEAD as good summaries to enhance one’s understanding of the books. I’ve read them both now and I heartily agree with his assessment.
As it states in the beginning of Shrugged Notes, the summary is in no way a substitute for reading the entire book. Pity the poor student who even attempts to do so in order to get a grade. They will have missed the point of the book entirely.
The Notes “might” be a good teaser and introduction for those that aren’t sure if they want to tackle the real thing, but they are better IMO for just what they say they are, a summary to simplify and enhance one’s knowledge after one has read the whole book.
The Notes are written by capable Ayn Rand scholar Andrew Bernstein.
