Please list the title, author, and year (if known) of the book. Optionally, add a 1-5 rating, where 5 is a timeless must-read classic, and 1 is a book of passing interest.

Note: Authors and publishers are strictly prohibited from rating their own books! You may add, but not rate your books. Anyone found to be doing so will be banned from the Wiki. Book descriptions are not allowed on this page, but if you have a book of particular interests to Objectivists, you can make a new page for it.--GreedyCapitalist 13:39, 9 February 2006 (CST)
