  • "Rand's hero is Howard Roark, a brilliant young architect whose revolutionary building designs lead him to wage a desperate battle against his colleagues, society, and even the woman he loves. Roark refuses to cmpromise. In defense of his selfish choices. Roark stuns his critics by developing a radical moral philosophy every bit as revolutionary as his buildings."@en
  • "The Fountainhead is an unprecedented phenomenon in modern literature. Arguably the century's most challenging novel of ideas, The Fountainhead is the story of a gifted young architect, his violent battle with conventional standards, and his explosive love affair with the beautiful woman who struggles to defeat him. In his fight for success, he first discovers, then rejects, the seductive power of fame and money, finding that in the end, creative genius must triumph. His battle against mediocrity gives a gripping new dimension to the concept of evil."@en

  • "The Fountainhead has become an enduring piece of literature, more popular now than when published in 1943. On the surface, it is a story of one man, Howard Roark, and his struggles as an architect in the face of a successful rival, Peter Keating, and a newspaper columnist, Ellsworth Toohey. But the book addresses a number of universal themes: the strength of the individual, the tug between good and evil, the threat of fascism. The confrontation of those themes, along with the amazing stroke of Rand's writing, combine to give this book its enduring influence."

  • "In a brand-new Plume hardcover edition, here is the story of an intransigent young architect, Howard Roark, of his violent battle against a mindless status quo, and of his explosive love affair with a beautiful woman who worships him yet struggles to defeat him. In order to build his kind of buildings according to his own standards, Roark must fight against every variant of human corruption, including an unprincipled, parasitic rival; a powerful publisher of yellow journalism; and, worst of all, the country's leading humanitarian and power-luster ("Everything that can't be ruled, must go"). Epochal, impassioned, and hugely controversial, The Fountainhead-with more than six million copies in print-has become the classic American statement of individualism. Rand shows why every great innovator was hated and denounced, and why man's ego is the fountainhead of human greatness. Brilliantly written and daringly original, here-as resonant today as it was sixty years ago-is a novel about a hero."@en

Careers of Keating and Roark are followed up, from the day one graduates with honors from his alma mater and the other is expelled because of unruliness, although he is a real genius.
