President Trump
The often confounding behavior and temperament of the 45th President of the United States is regularly in the media spotlight. Dan P. McAdams, a renowned psychologist who pioneered the study of lives, examines the central personality traits, personal values and motives, and the interpersonal and cultural factors that together have shaped Trump's psychological makeup. The book's central thesis is that Donald Trump is the episodic man who defies psychological expectations regarding what it means to be a human being. With an emphasis on scientific personality research, rather than political rhetoric, he shows that Trump's utter lack of an inner life story is truly exceptional. McAdams has been featured in The NY Times, The New Yorker, The Atlantic, WSJ and USA Today.
