A Resource for Independent Scholars

Here is a book I recommend:

Ronald Gross, The Independent Scholar's Handbook (Berkeley, CA: The Ten Speed Press, 1982, 1993) 301 + xviii pp. I especially liked the account of Eric Hoffer, pp. 36-42.

For Ralph Dumain's review of the book, and a contrary assessment of the Hoffer section from a leftist perspective, see here.

Dumain's Autodidact Project is an interesting site indeed.

Also worth a look is Secrets of Guerilla Scholarship.
