    One thought on “100 Voices: An Oral History of Ayn Rand”

    1. I know there is an official biography of Ayn Rand coming out soon, but this might end up being more interesting. It took me a long time to read it, which is strange because it was so compelling you'd think I'd pick it up night after night. Maybe I was just stretching out the experience. Of course, I enjoyed getting to know Ayn Rand better. I'd already read just about anything I could get my hands on about her (with the exception of the Heller and Burns books), but there were a lot of new insight [...]

    2. ILLUMINATING, INSIGHTFUL & DELIGHTFUL.“The lady was a wowser.”—Scott Stanley, page 153Despite the strangeness of interviews with her dentist and with her cats’ veterinarian, Scott McConnell’s ‘100 Voices: An Oral History of Ayn Rand,’ is a magnificent love letter to the memory of one of the loveliest ladies who ever lived. I was especially pleased to read the interviews with Mickey Spillane, Robert Stack and Duane Eddy; and the interview about her (incredibly expensive) lunch w [...]

    3. Incredible! I started this not thinking that I would enjoy it as much as I did. You really get to know Ayn Rand as you never have before!

    4. Back when this first came out, I just did a skim-through for the most interesting interviews, and thought it was pretty good because there are several. But when I went back and read it all the way through, I was seriously disappointed.[return][return]Most of the book is filled with material that you either might already know, or have no good reason to want to. A lot of it is interviews with distant relatives or autograph-seeking fans who only met Ayn Rand on perhaps one occasion, and repeat ad n [...]

    5. While there is no narrative flow to this compilation, the series of recollections from Ayn Rand's closest friends, a bit from her family and extended kin, and even from those who had fleeting interactions with the celebrated author of The Fountainhead opens divergent and similar views on the headstrong lady. Aside from consistent commendations by her students, colleagues, and fans, perhaps one of the more poignant remembrance of Rand and her relationship with her husband paints a delicate pictur [...]

    6. This book is fascinating and informative. Its flaws: editing and organizational mistakes and faulty memories of interviewees (obvious and otherwise). It is absolutely required reading for any Rand fn.

    7. So many amazing interviews of so varied, different people who knew Ayn Rand in one way or the other. It truly gives a different perspective of the woman who wrote "Atlas Shrugged" and "The Fountainhead" and "The Virtue of Selfishness". Excellent read!

    8. Interesting interviews of Ayn Rand's relatives/associates/friends; recommended for Ayn Rand fans who want to know every little thing about her.

    9. Great bio of Rand. 100 interviews of people who knew her. many unique perspectives of this fascinating and controversial figure.
