Discover America's Forgotten Sage
This is a new anthology of Elbert Hubbard's most insightful, inspiring, and provocative writings, edited and introduced by Sam Torode.
Elbert Hubbard (1856-1915) was a philosopher, entrepreneur, and leader of the Arts & Crafts movement in America. One of the most widely read authors if his day, his work fell into obscurity in the decades after he perished in the sinking of the Lusitania at the outset of WWI. This book aims to bring Elbert Hubbard back into the limelight.
Hubbard might have been the world's first blogger and Tweeter--these 120 short essays, plus many aphorisms (pithy sayings), reveal a writer far ahead of his time.
Includes Hubbard's revolutionary ideas on women's equality, free-thought vs. religion, rethinking the school system, opposing the war machine, and much, much more.
This is a handsome, large-format (7"x10") paperback, with a design inspired by Hubbard's original books. The Kindle e-book is free with purchase of the paperback.

About the Author:
Elbert Hubbard (1856-1915) was a philosopher, entrepreneur, and leader of the Arts & Crafts movement in America. He and his wife, Alice, died in the sinking of the RMS Lusitania by a German submarine, an event which precipitated World War I.
Sam Torode creates books that entertain, inform, and inspire. He is author of a bestselling humorous novel, The Dirty Parts of the Bible, and also author/editor of multiple philosophical works.
"Elbert Hubbard's writings and his famous experiment in book making at East Aurora made him one of the most interesting American characters of his time. He had a rare faculty of expression and he used it to serve the cause of common sense in this country.
"Hubbard demonstrated the power of an idea when conceived by an independent mind and supported by intelligent industry. His Roycroft Shop became a place of pilgrimage to men and women who were interested in handicrafts and who dreamed of a greater idealization of common life.
"I visited him at East Aurora and was a reader of his publications from the start. Elbert Hubbard deserves a permanent place in our libraries." --Henry Ford
