Synopsis: Blind as a child, Eric Hoffer--one of America's most important thinkers--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 became the basis for his insights on human nature. Filled with timeless aphorisms and entertaining stories, Truth Imagined tracks Hoffer's years on the road, which served as the breeding ground for his most fertile thoughts.

From the Publisher: Eric Hoffer--philosopher, author of the timeless tome The True Believer, and a truly great American thinker--leaves us with his memoir. It's an insightful, stunning, and entertaining depiction of his life on the road during The Great Depression of the early 1900's.
