Manipulating us

by diebroke on Mar 14, 2013

The techniques that mass movements use are useful to understand - from politicians to religious movements the characteristics are simple, repeatable and successful - read so you know how you are being manipulated.

Though relatively short what it lacks in volume it more than makes up for in content quality. It is difficult to find a better treatise on the nature (antecedants, behaviors, consequences) of zealots or fanatics. His analysis is both original and coldly accurate. Both descriptively and prescriptively. A classic with timeless value.

Wonderful book

by Alexander711 on Sep 6, 2007

The True Believer is a wonderful and witty exploration into the minds of fanatics and zealots. Completely interesting from the first word to the last; Eric Hoffer throws you head first into a concise, logical and complete examination of the fanatic's mind and the environment which creates him.
