Publisher's Summary

In The Crowd: A Study of the Popular Mind, social theorist Gustave Le Bon gives historical insight into the political thinking of his era while offering timeless social commentary. Le Bon challenges the listener to contemplate how individual ideas change - often to a destructive end - when employed in a setting of groupthink. As technology and communications innovations make group formation easy and accessible for better or for worse, this book's message is certainly one that will not be lost in the crowd.

Definitely going to listen again very soon.

I think I'm going to buy a physical copy of this book as well. I learned so much.

Decent, explains politics to this day

Little hard to understand in some parts, but really did relate to the recent election and how the power of the orator and his/her effect on the Crowd manifests itself. We are collectively dummer in a Crowd and can be easily influenced to do things that, by ourselves, we'd never consider.
