Outside of a couple strange, unusually high, years back in college, I've never been big into philosophy. And I've never studied any of Ayn Rand's stuff. I was talking to my youngest brother (a 17 year old INTP) about economics while watching football, today, and we diverged into philosophy, when I started explaining how I tend to look at all human decision making from an economic perspective. He told me that it reminded him quite a bit Ayn Rand and that I should read The Fountainhead.
So my questions are:
Is my brother full of shit?
Is this a book worth buying and reading?
Keep in mind, if it's super dry, like reading Kant, I'm gonna want to throw it out the window.
