I agree with what everybody else said about this book. The opening article/essay - the same title as the book - was very good. After that, though, it's just excerpts from her novels "We the Living", "Anthem", "Fountainhead", and "Atlas Shrugged." It's all the most important speeches/discussions from the novels; so it's kind of like a cliff notes of all the novels.

I gave it 3 stars and recommend it just because of the opening "For the New Intellectual" essay; other than that, I would just recommend it to people who want a simplified, cliff notes version of all of Rand's novel.
