Fred Cole Posted June 20, 2011 Share Posted June 20, 2011 I recently finished the Heller biography.I found it very fair. It had the good, the bad, the ugly, and the really ugly.I also loved the research on Ayn Rand's youth. Heller tied alot of things in Rand's personal psychology to Russia and growing up as a second class citizen under the Czar.(By the way, whenever anyone mentions Ayn Rand's distrust of men with beards, which always sounded apocraphyl to me anyway, it seemed semi plausible if she grew up in czarist Russia. Peikoff explained the beard thing in a podcast once. I thought the explination made sense.) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
