I really recommend the 50th anniversary edition of this book as there are two copies of the book within. The first copy is the finalized regular printed edition in the United States. The 2nd copy is an earlier edition of the book when Rand had yet to completely grasp the English language and all of it its idiosyncrasies.

It's really neat to see words she changed, and sentences and paragraphs that she either omitted (sometimes hard to read what she crosses out), replaced, or revised. To have the original author's edits alone are worth the price of the book.
