Odd timing...I'm scanning copies of my books that I can't find for Kindle, IDEAS...being one of them. In my search last week, I came across an older review that suggested that this book should have been updated, and now...there it is. How's that for synchronicity?

however, it seems to have been done without the permission of the owner of the copyright - Yoon Merrill, the widow... indeed, it seems without even letting her know of it until a fait accompli and someone else told her Sunday...

Robert, I was wondering about that...who authorized this, etc., and the ethics of revising someone's work after their death...changing the title, even...Of course, it's being done because of the recent Rand resurgence; see the "tea party" reference in the subtitle...but it's upfront that it's revised and edited by someone else...

Not knowing the details, there may be a good explanation, and may be worthwhile, but a little weird, especially with all the problems associated with the editing of Rand's work, posthumously...I hope the revisions are justified, and not just a cashing in on the tea party aspect, since Objectivism is bigger than politics. It's THE IDEAS OF AYN RAND, not RAND FOR TEA PARTY PATRIOTS...
