Saturday, July 10, 2004 Books: The True Believer : Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements (Perennial Classics)A stevedore on the San Francisco docks in the 1940s, Eric Hoffer wrote philosophical treatises in his spare time while livingin 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 the individual becomes one.
