I found a great New York Times piece on Ayn Rand. She still beats out Jack Welch!
Here is a quote from the article:
"Last year, bookstores sold 150,000 copies of the book. It continues to hold appeal, even to a younger generation. Mark Cuban, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks, who was born in 1958, and John P. Mackey, the chief executive of Whole Foods, who was 3 when the book was published, have said they consider Rand crucial to their success."
For those of you who haven't read Atlas Shrugged, you are really missing something great.
