Sinopsis:

The author details his relationship with Ayn Rand, illuminating the tremendous influence of Objectivism on his life and work and the twenty-five year intimate relationship they shared

Review:

...the book provides valuable insights into the life of a great thinker and her followers, warns of the dangers of cultism, points out the positive aspects and hazards of Rand's philosophy, and provides an introduction to Mr. Branden's own significant work on the psychology of self-esteem. Not bad for a story that is often as gripping as, well, an Ayn Rand novel. -- Judge Alex Kozinski, Wall Street Journal

An intensely personal story of the making of a powerful intellectual movement that helped shape the policy changes now rocking the world. the story will appall some, anguish others, and intrigue and excite everyone. -- Martin Anderson, The Hoover Institute

Branden faced up to the issues with really admirable courage and frankness....A quite extraordinary book. -- Colin Wilson, Author of The Outsider

Branden's riveting book has love, philosophy and mystery...an unparalleled investigative memoir about people who have shaped our world view. -- Warren Bennis, Distinguished Professor of Business Administration, USC, and author of Why Leaders Can't Lead

It struck me as non-stop theatre. All the ingredients are there: conflict, colorful characters, suspense, and a Greek inevitability of tragedy born of hubris. There are scenes that collect energy and explode just this side of melodrama. There's a nexus of sex nearly dizzying in its permutations-and a confrontation climax to delight the heart of any dramatist. Judgment Day is a novel, a drama, a memoir; and most of all, one suspects, an act of catharsis demanding great courage of its author. -- Dale Wasserman, Playwright and sreenwriter Man of La Mancha, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

Judgment Day is the story of an intensely passionate man who loves four very different women, the universe of ideas, and the infinite possibilities of life. Truly stimulating whether or not you care about Ayn Rand, Objectivism or Nathaniel Branden. And if you do care-an incredible feast. -- Jeremy P. Tarcher, President, Jeremy P. Tarcher, Inc.

Utterly compelling -- Robin Mather, Detroit News

What a story! It's heroic, romantic, deadly, horrifyng, tender-and I couldn't put it down. -- George Leonard, former Look editor, a founder of the Esalen Institute, and author of Walking on the Edge of the World
