    1. Eric Hoffer's Passionate Philosophizing, starting on page 31, drew my interest. Although I do not need the whorehouse or the tobacco that that Mr. Hoffer relied upon, I found his passion for learning very stimulating. Some of his methodology, as described in this book, I have found useful. However, some of it seems a bit sloppy and may have contributed to some errors in his writing, of which I am dimly aware. Even though I am named after him, and two other Erics, I have never quite gotten into h [...]


    2. I purchased this to refine my own process as an independent scholar, and in that respect it comes up short, particularly because it is so dated. However, I still enjoyed the book in spirit--it's encouraging and serves as a wonderful motivator to pursue independent work. The accounts of other successful independent scholars are still relevant today, and it was helpful to read about their struggles and successes. I was especially inspired by the stories of Eric Hoffer, Hazel Henderson, William Irw [...]


    3. Unfortunately, only the first few chapters are currently relevant. The book was revised in 1993, but without mention of the Internet it struggles to be useful.That being said, I did get a few good ideas.

    4. Although the recommended research techniques are dated (my copy is copyrighted 1982), i.e before the advent of the widely use of the Internet, the book is instructive and inspiring. The author points to the success of individuals such as Barbara Tuchman, Alvin Toffler, Betty Friedan, Eric Hoffer as well as many of the less well known. The most inspiring for me is that of Buckminster Fuller, rising from poverty and on the verge of suicide in his thirties.
