Abstract
Aeon J. Skoble argues that Allan Gotthelf's new primer, On Ayn Rand, is a helpful survey of Rand's thought. Though it explains her theories systematically and offers a thorough treatment of her metaphysics, epistemology, and ethics, however, it provides hardly any discussion of her political philosophy or aesthetics. It is also regrettable that the bibliography lacks references to the secondary literature, which, in a primer such as this, would have been very useful
