With his recent win of the Eric Hoffer Award for his book The Science of Shame and it’s Treatment, Dr. Gerald Fishkin discusses the history of Eric Hoffer and the importance of this win.

During his 3rd year of college, Eric Hoffer’s The True Believer was required reading for Dr. Fishkin. Eric Hoffer’s insight into the human condition and his inimitable way of expressing his thoughts excited him and has continued to influence his thinking about individuals and their motivations.

Dr. Gerald Fishkin became extremely interested in finding out more and really learning who Eric Hoffer was.
