Character in Chief
Drawing on three decades of teaching and therapy, John M. Berecz, Ph.D. burrows beneath the surface of personality and character to reveal the real person working in the Oval Office in his new book Character in Chief: Personality and Character of George W. Bush and Past Presidents. With penetrating insight and concise writing, the author acquaints the reader with the real people behind the pageantry of the presidency. Using analytic skills honed to a sharp edge with years of psychotherapy experience, Berecz explores such contemporary issues as Was Nixon a wife beater?" Is Dubya smart enough to be president?" Did the 2000 election boil down to a choice between personality and competence?" Skillfully, Berecz explores the relationship between character and personality, helping the reader understand how a man with the moral integrity of Jimmy Carter could bungle the presidency and a man like Clinton, with so little character, could manage it so successfully. Character in Chief is must reading for anyone interested in politics in general and the presidency in particular. With fairness and compassion Berecz will lead you to a deeper understanding of our great democracy and the people who lead it.
