Yes good point. I have read 3 Ayn Rand novels and several of her philosophy books. I must say I prefer her philosophy books to her fiction. Ironically, Rand is closer to Kropotkin in many ways. They both detested the State, but their solutions are a wee bit different.

Although not in the public domain nor in any ebook format that I can find, I highly recommend it, especially as it presents the other side of the picture.
