The "Fountainhead" is NOT really about architecture, but about an architect who happens to have an affair with the daughter of a prominent man (played by Raymond Massey in the movie of the same name) and one learns precious little about architecture. It is primarily an essay about the rights of 'Free Thinkers' being supposedly above the morals of common man. The novel produces ponderous film hokum! The monumantal speech of protagonist Roarke (played by Gary Cooper in the film) shows the hubris of self-made (arrogant) men. The book is said to be a roman-a-clef for Frank Lloyd Wright, but even the imperious Mr. Wright could not have been as supposedly 'noble' as the posturings of the character in the book or movie. No, this book is NOT any guide to a career in architecture!
