My sister recently saw the movie. She said she like it though she has not read the book Atlas Shrugged. I have read the book but not seen the movie. Not sure if I'll watch the movie anytime soon. However, the other day I and Gove were getting ready for a book discussion and were reading from The Annals of America #2 when we see the name John Galt. Turns out he was an author, entrepreneur, and founder of Guelph in Canada.
I haven't looked for the reason why Ayn Rand choose this name but could it be this guy who no one really knows of today except maybe some Canadians?
