I'm a journalist and author. My next book is AYN RAND NATION: The Hidden Struggle for America's Soul (St. Martin's Press: Feb. 28, 2012).

I was an investigative reporter at BusinessWeek for many years, and I write weekly columns for TheStreet.com and Salon. My previous books were Wall Street Versus America (Portfolio: 2006) and Born to Steal (Warner Books: 2003).

I was a contributing editor at Condé Nast Portfolio and a columnist at Portfolio.com; I've written for the Daily Beast, Parade magazine, The New York Times, the Big Money, the Globe and Mail and other publications. I'm also an adjunct professor at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. An archive of my Portfolio.com columns can be found here, and my Forbes.com

“He was low-key and stating the obvious, but it was necessary because Rand's dogma is predicated on ignoring the obvious.”
Gary Weiss, Ayn Rand Nation: The Hidden Struggle for America's Soul

“Rand was willing to wipe out reality,' said Iris.”
Gary Weiss, Ayn Rand Nation: The Hidden Struggle for America's Soul

“What I was seeing here is a perennial issue for Ayn Rand followers—the need to finesse aspects of her teachings that make no sense, or seem superficially coherent but crumble upon even cursory examination.”
Gary Weiss, Ayn Rand Nation: The Hidden Struggle for America's Soul
