Praise for Leonard Peikoff
“Offers a truly revolutionary idea…The book is clear, tight, disciplined, beautifully structured, and brilliantly reasoned. Its style is clear and hard as crystal—and as sparkling… As to my personal reaction, I can express it best by paraphrasing a line from Atlas Shrugged: ‘It’s so wonderful to see a great, new, crucial achievement which is not mine!’”—Ayn Rand
“Extraordinarily perceptive…frightening insights…Everyone concerned with the collectivist trend in today’s world should read this book.”—Alan Greenspan
“A fascinating weave of German history, philosophic determinism, and Objectivist polemic.”—Chicago Tribune

“A revelation…Peikoff is an extraordinary communicator…He brings the most difficult intellectual ideas within the grasp of the general reader.”Detroit Free Press
