Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 16, 2013
In 1960s New York City, Ayn Rand taught Kerry O'Quinn the "secrets of life" at the Nathaniel Branden Institute. Since those golden days, Kerry has been teaching others how to enjoy the difficult struggles necessary to explore beyond our comfort zones and make distant dreams come true – learning, dreaming, planning and truly relishing the reaching. His ideas are inspiring, motivating and brutally practical.
The material for this talk draws on his forthcoming book, Reach for the Stars, built from his opening editorials in Starlog, magazine of the science fiction universe, which he created and published for more than 20 years.

ABOUT THE ATLAS SOCIETY:
The Atlas Society promotes open Objectivism: the philosophy of reason, achievement, individualism, and freedom. Our scholars work to further develop this philosophy born in the mid-twentieth century.

We do this through a variety of programs, which include:
-Original scholarly research which further develops the philosophy.
-Academic training of young intellectuals.
-Publishing and commissioning influential books and monographs.
-Our rich multi-media website.
-Original commentary and op-eds published in mainstream media.
