Author Peter Schwartz names four things that readers will learn from his book "In Defense of Selfishness: Why the Code of Self-Sacrifice Is Unjust and Destructive" (2015) — what selfishness and altruism really are, why moral principles are necessary for a genuinely selfish life, and why "the public interest" is a myth. Schwartz is a distinguished fellow at the Ayn Rand Institute as well as a retired chairman of its board of directors.
