Biography and quotes

Cuban read Rand's The Fountainhead 'three complete times and untold number of little snippets and segments,' he said in an interview on C-SPAN (March 26, 2006). He first read the book in high school, and it taught him that 'it doesn't matter what everybody else thinks -- it's how you see yourself and what your own dreams are.'"
