The true believer : thoughts on the nature of mass movements by Eric Hoffer( Book )

113 editions published between 1951 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 3,702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A stevedore on the San Francisco docks in the 1940s, Eric Hoffer wrote philosophical treatises in his spare time while living in the railroad yards. The True Believer--the first and most famous of his books--was made into a bestseller when President Eisenhower cited it during one of the earliest television press conferences. Completely relevant and essential for understanding the world today, The True Believer is a visionary, highly provocative look into the mind of the fanatic and a penetrating study of how an individual becomes one.--From publisher description

Reflections on the human condition by Eric Hoffer( Book )

8 editions published between 1972 and 1974 in English and held by 801 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of aphorisms and philosophical comment represents Eric Hoffer at his best. It offers stunning insights that strike home with startling frequency, often most uncomfortably; it has a fine unity, a well-defined theme. That some of the statements invite argument and questioning is inevitable and stimulating. Here is a book of the "wry epigram and the icy aphorism" which made his earlier books so appealing and gained for him a wide audience.--Publisher description
