You’ve seen me quote Eric Hoffer numerous times. You’ve heard me enthuse about his writings. But for some reason, perhaps owing to some inherent cussedness in human nature, you’ve never actually settled down to read one of his books. You say to yourself, “Self, I’m not actually convinced that this will be a rewarding experience.” Well, who can say why we’re led astray in these instances? I’m not here to judge. Maybe it’s me, maybe it’s you. (I’ve thought it over. It’s you.) But if you won’t listen to me, maybe you’ll read Rob Henderson’s review of The True Believer and that will finally break down your recalcitrance.
