I have just read Ayn Rand's book Anthem, a short read, took maybe an hour to finish. It is written from the perspective of a man living in a dystopia where the idea of an individual has been suppressed, and the collective is the ruling idea.

You follow him on his intellectual journey, where he discovers himself.

An interesting read, I enjoyed it. It's also availiable in audio book.

I have also read Milton & Rose Friedman's Free to Choose over the past weeks. It is a personal statement defending capitalism, and even provides some solutions to certain issues that while they are not complete laissez-faire, would be better than the status quo, such as school vouchers.
