Publisher's Summary

Offering an in-depth psychological and political portrait of what makes Donald Trump tick, Dangerous Charisma combines psychoanalysis with an investigation into the personality of the current American president. This narrative not only examines the life and psychology of Donald Trump but also provides an analysis of the charismatic psychological tie between Trump and his supporters.

While there are many books on Donald Trump, there has been no rigorous psychological portrait by a psychiatrist who specializes in political personality profiling. As the founding director of the CIA’s Center for the Analysis of Personality and Political Behavior, Dr. Post has created profiles of world leaders for the use of American presidents during historic events. As once stated by Jane Mayer of The New Yorker, who characterized Dr. Post as “a pioneer in the field of political personality profiling”, “he may be the only psychiatrist who has specialized in the self-esteem problems of both Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein.”

In this new book, the psychiatrist who once served under five American presidents applies his expertise to profiling the current resident in the White House with surprising and revelatory results.

For a psychologically-aware news junkie there’s not much new

For someone who is aware of the characteristics of a malignant narcissist, and follows the news daily, there’s not much new information. While the author has an impressive command of the topic, and there ought to be more psychological awareness brought to our political lives and this is a great contribution, I was looking for a deeper understanding of the inner dynamics of Trump’s followers, not so much Trump himself. I got from this book that the followers have a need to follow him like he was a lock that opened their key. Got it just from looking at the rallies. What’s going on inside those brains underneath the MAGA hats? I still don’t know after listening to this book. I would recommend the book "The Cult of Trump" for that.

1 Percent Psychology 99 Percent Bias

This book barely ever references actual psychology, but instead gives a very biased recap of everything CNN has already covered over the past several years. I expected more from an author boasting their background as a CIA profiler. Very disappointing. Very biased. Don't waste your time.
