Blind as a child, Eric Hoffer--one of Americas most important thinkers and the author of The True Beleiver--regained his sight at the age of fifteen and became a voracious reader. At eighteen, fate would take his remaining family, sending him on the road with three hundred dollars and into the life of a Depression Era migrant worker, but his appetite for knowledge-history, science, mankind-remained and formed the basis for his insights on human nature. Filled with timeless aphorisms and entertaining stories, Truth Imagined tracks Hoffers years on the road, which served as the breeding ground for his most fertile thoughts.
