Мысли о природе массовых движений

Eric Hoffer

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.

10. The True Believer by Eric Hoffer -- a brilliant book on the nature of mass movements and collective psychology.      источник
@RealMarkCecil One of the most quotable books I've ever read. I think about it often.      источник
"Behind the Curtain" Book #4: The True Believer: Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements by Eric Hoffer. An all-time favorite book on influence and culture.      источник
I couldn't wrap my head around it until I read Eric Hoffer's The True Believer. I've read and re-read this book countless times ever since, grabbing it off my bookshelf during the various "revolutions" that have happened over the past ten years, and have never been disappointed by Hoffer's insights into the mind and motivations of people who participate in mass movements.      источник
@TonyClimate I think you would massively appreciate Eric Heller's, "The True Believer." It is about mass movements--how they start, where they get their fuel from (fanatics), and why people join in. The book climbed into my brain and camped out. Climate changers are a classic.      источник
This, to me, is one of the true classics of all time.      источник
