If you pick up a copy of the book at a library and don't want to go through the entire novel, I would recommend reading the chapter "This Is John Galt Speaking." It is the most complete, perceptive, and fundamental explanation of the principles of Objectivism. I also believe this is the only "ism" based entirely on the nature of man and his responsibility to be authentically human in his life on earth. The atheism that seems to turn some off from Rand is only a small part of her philosophy, but her rejection of the control of religion over personal lives is certainly worth thinking about.
