Yeah, it's a classic. But for a book club? Not unless there are 3 months time to read the thing (700+ pages or 34+ hours for the audio version). And maybe I am too much of a Gen X to appreciate this opus - or too much of realist; I found it boring, wordy and quite unrealistic, and not at all inspiring or life changing. I guess that makes me the individualist? ;-)

Interesting picture of self absorbed people. I disagree with the author's philosophy, but it was an interesting, though slow read.

I think everyone should read this book at some point in their lives if only to understand how different we are in beliefs and values.
