There is a serious problem with lack of authenticity here. Who or what IS Dr. Decker? A lack of information about the author or authors creates much doubt. There are NO professional credits given. After reading, my impression is as if visiting a Palm reader or fortune teller. There is a distant likelihood of being accurate assessing the future.
Many highly intelligent people are also boldly self assured. "Dr." Decker may be entirely a Trump hater with a political agenda.

His info on narcissism and common traits/behaviors was very interesting, yet could have included more such as projection, or inability to see reality as it really is, or abnormal decision making.
The Ways of Working was most interesting in my opinion.
Section 3 - What to Expect seemed to be based almost entirely on Trump's stated platform and plans - nothing particularly revelatory or insightful.
Since it was cheap, and short, it was fine reading.

So far, the information provides a psychological/clinical dissection of Trump's personality traits. In addition, predictions are proffered for the reader's consideration, based on the profile. I look forward to completing this text and referring to it during the remainder of the current administration.

If you know even the simplest most common sense things about psychology or psychiatry, this will not give you many new answers but this great little book will give you a chilling view of the greatest con man in American history. What is more fascinating to me is how millions voted for him and still support him after everything that has come out during his so called presidency. There are countless magazine and news paper articles and well as video interviews with this sociopath narcisist well before he ran for president that should have alerted the nation to his money and power hunger insatiability that could ruin this country in we all sit and do nothing.

This author may very well be a high school senior. The book needs a second reader. Don't Bother an editor. It is ridiculously repetitive, disorganized and otherwise poorly written. The analysis,where it exists, is superficial and boring.Just skip this one.

Dr. Decker's conclusions are spot-on. Much of what he predicted has already come to pass. I have a background in psychology and counseling, and agree with his assessments as well. The book is brief, but it contains considerable information. I am looking forward to reading it again in six months and see what other predictions Dr, Decker made that are proven to be true. Good read and if you are concerned as I am about the President's abilities, it is a must read.

Bought this on a whim because it was cheap. Interesting but nothing new. I had a very sad and expensive marriage to a woman with a severe personality disorder and immediately recognized the same symptoms in Trump. So sad to see him dragging the country down. America should be ashamed that they could not recognize such an obviously damaged and dysfunctional person.

I don’t believe in psychics, but the author, with few exceptions, has profiled Trump’s psychopathic behavior to a “T”. The only thing he was a little off the mark on is Trump’s view of women. I believe he has a deeply misogynistic view, and he really does not respect ANY woman, including his current wife and very attractive daughter. Those women who are attractive, young, thin, smart, have big boobs and who are Pro-Trump are good vehicles to stoke his enormous ego. Any woman who is older, overweight, and non-white, and especially Democratic, progressive or liberal women just take up oxygen in his warped mind. Wish the book was a little longer, but it was so spot on, it was downright creepy!

A concise, unemotional and disturbing account of the likely outcomes with this presidency. The book deftly outlines the psychological reasons why Trump is unfit to hold high office, despite his success in other endeavours. If this book had been published prior to the 2016 election, perhaps fewer Americans would have voted for Trump (it is hoped). Highly recommended.

Oh Gawd, what has 33% of Americans done to their country! Even without reading this I knew before he was placed in the White House, he was a danger to our freedoms, our Treasury dept. But little did I know that the Republican party would sit quietly back and let this S. O. B. tear our constitution apart. I know why they are doing it. To do their super-rich financial backers bidding! People! Wake up! They are taking our country back to the Gilded Age when the rich ruling class stomped on the backs of the very workers who helped make them rich! READ YOUR HISTORY! They railed and screamed about Obama and Hillary doing things against the Constitution, they obstructed, they denied, they outright freaking lied and to this day they continue on this path. Yet they have let this orange monster do anything that he wants.Why is that GOP TEA Freedom caucus members? Why are you all not so OUTRAGED at his tweets, his behavior all of his verbal attacks and insults, bullying, emoluments clause, the racketeering, money laundering, the connections to Russia and it's oligarchs? and the most egregious all of his proven lies and all of those women who accused him of sexual assault. This man would not know the truth if it was dangling from his nose.

This book uses the techniques of FBI profiling to predict the behavior of Donald Trump based on the characteristics he has already shown to anticipate behavior he might also exhibit in future situations. The process and materials documented are definitely Trump' s past and present behaviors. The future actions that Trump will likely take are the responses we can anticipate from this man who as the American president, is a danger to our Democracy. SEE THE DUCK yet?

It shoud be called a phamphlet the delivery envelope was so flat I couldnt believe it 12 pages and a first page. Don't advertise it as a book far from it. It asks you to recommend it to your friends.....YEAH right thank you the store Mary for reimbursing me. It was very deliberately misleading on the add cover and the book listings on the store to purchase you think a Dr. Weber FBI was evaluating him which was explained IN THE TINY phamphlet later. But not good enough. You can get these evaluations by watching tv and google. I was very disappointed therefore no stars/actually -5 unfortunately it wont let you close it without something.

This "book" read as if it were a high school project. It is poorly organized, has a few misspellings (non-partison), and fails to present anything that isn't already all over the internet. I was intrigued by the possibility of reading from the perspective of an FBI profile, but this fails to even come close. The author is identified as Dr. Becker (not his or her real name), but no credentials are offered. This is a FAIL. Save a couple of dollars for a cup of coffee while searching Google for more precise information on this subject.

What have Americans done? I find this scary for not only America, but for the entire world. To this date August 1, 2017 this book is right on cue. Just don't want a confrontation with possible war. Which looks enviable at this point.

I would have returned it if I could have gotten my money back. Still, this is an informative article that catalogue self-centered behavior. There's some decent definitions here as well. The author takes time to point out what many of us suspect or have surmised, but failed to sit down and catalogue. There's nothing here not available by a few google searches with the correct key words. So save your time and money; time is not much of an issue because the Kindle edition is more of an article.
I admit that it's kind of fun reading about Trump's behavior and the predictions, because the predictions are pretty darn much on the mark, but not surprisingly so for anyone with an interest in human behavior, personality, and some studies in psychology, sociology, and some life experience.
Many of the personality characteristics for self-centeredness, narcissist-like behavior, apply to many of us at various times in our lives.

With a textbook description of narcissism the author presents an accurate forecast of Trumpism that has proven to be accurate over the first year with the exception of the economic forecast, which has proven to be completely wrong as of Jan 2018.

Although I agree with the analogy of Trump's narcissistic behavior and characteristics, I was disappointed in finding there was a lack of dialog addressing the fact that the (GOP) Congress is allowing this man to tear up OUR Nation.. Though this Book was written in January 2017, I disagree that he will not be found guilty and his Presidency ruined.. I think he will resign before he's impeached.. With the evidence of Russia's meddling,, I will agree with Rep. Maxine Waters that he is an illegitimate President.

What a joke ... not the author, not the topic ... it's a good read and nicely written. The matter of Trump's brain? How do you examine an empty shell? My common sense and observation of humanity for longer than Trump has been here infecting our world tells me there is nothing in there to profile. This man is a calamity who's damage will last for decades if he was to "tip over" this afternoon. Yes, if you despise the subject as much as I do, then you may enjoy this book. At some point, I found it hard to continue as I felt I was reading the news and that I have the ability personally to see right through that empty skull. What a pathetic little twelve year old in a fat boy suit who has not even accepted that he does not have hair, plays more golf than he claimed Obama was destroying America with and on and on and on to complete nausea.

I consider this a "must read." It is a succinct, plain-language description of the narcissistic personality disorder. It is a remarkably accurate description of Trump's actions to date and absolutely nails all of his actions since inauguration (it was submitted for publication prior to that). The author's name is a pseudonym and he is not a real FBI profiler, so that has to be factored in. Having said that, his crystal ball is crystal clear.

kayce johnson
The author seems to go beyond the scope of his claimed expertise. He does this by not only assessing what Trump's actions will be, but the results of such actions.
He also makes some important factual errors. North Korea can defend itself by holding Seoul hostage, as any military person will tell you. The US has often used brief air attacks on it's adversaries when it can do so with little risk...the "prediction" in this book does not predict much.. As for the economy - the president has little short term influence on booms and busts. For better or for worse, the president has much less influence over the country and the world than commonly believed.

Keeping in mind that the first section is just a description of narcissistic personality disorder, one can't help but imagine every point describing him. (Here we are talking about, just like he'd want). The author takes some liberties in predicting what will happen in the world, and then how Trump will react. While I don't think he's necessarily wrong in his prediction of work events (all very feasible), I didn't care for those liberties as much. Still a must read.

First, "Dr. Decker" is, as the book itself admits, "merely a pen name." In other words, your Uncle Bob could be the author. Second, as the book admits, the information in it "did not come from the FBI -- it is mere in the style of an FBI behavioral analysis." Third, the author "is not an FBI agent or consultant and is not affiliated with the FBI in any way." So if the title of the book is that misleading (a lie, actually), why should we believe anything written in the book? Lastly, the book I received lists its publication date as 2018. It's "predictions" are based, therefore, on facts the author passes off as "predictions." And even those are often wrong. DO NOT BE FOOLED. The book is a scam.

20 page "report" on this author's expectations of Donald Trump's performance as president. A quick read. Suitable for toilet reading, but not worth the price...or any price for that matter. Everyone knows Trump is a narcissist, this guy expands on that definition but doesn't give us any new information. Just skip it. "Dr. Decker" is a narcissist too.
★ ★ ☆ ☆ ☆

Save your money. It is not an "FBI profile". It is an opinion that is actually written "from the point of view of an FBI profile". It claims to have made predictions in 2017 that are not published until 2018. It is a mere 25 pages.
It does ring true though. Trump is a sociopath. The pamphlet does in fact reflect published assessments by psychologists.
The man is a poor example of a human being and is unfit for office. Sad. His voters will suffer.

warner robinson
Based on this book, I now understand that Trump definitely embodies many narcissistic personality disorder traits and can be easily classified as mentally ill ... and this is probably why he didn't want to share his medical history with the public! This book is worth reading in order to better comprehend why Trump appears to be so unstable and a danger to Americans and others throughout the world!

First of all, this book does not have numbered pages, but it is about 1/8 inch thick. I did not see the number of pages listed at the time I purchased it, but I would never have bought it if I knew it was this short. Second, the title indicates this is an FBI profile of Donald Trump. This logically lead me to think it was written by someone in the FBI. No, it isn't. The person who wrote it under the cover name of Dr. Decker does not list any credentials other than saying he/she has researched the subject. Anyone could have written it by just summarizing news articles on the subject, of which there are many, and many of those written long ago during the campaign. Though this "book" is extremely short, it is in fact extensively padded. The author offers long lists of characteristics and behaviors seen in narcissists, and then essentially rehashes them all in paragraph form.
The book certainly didn't tell me anything you could not already know by watching TV on any day of the week. I guess I will just have to take the author's word when he says the book was written at about the time of President Trump's inauguration. He seems to make astounding predictions of specific actions of the President, apparently looking into the future. Of course, if the book had in fact been written a bit into the presidency, it would merely be reporting things that have already happened, rather than predicting them. As well, as noted above, many of these general behaviors were already quite visible during the campaign.

If, as the author claims, he made these predictions prior to Trump's inauguration, he's impressively spot on so far, though I'm still hoping he's wrong about the Russia investigation. At this point, 7 months in, we already know most of this information. Readers hoping for insight beyond this point will find little they haven't already guessed themselves. I'd be more interested in a profile of Mitch McConnell. He's the one deciding how long this circus runs, how long it is useful to his ends. He and Trump have one thing in common, the good of the country is the last thing on either of their minds.

After reading a book by another author, Robert D Hare, Without Conscience it's not hard to predict the behavior of a narcissist. This quick reading of predictions in Trump's Brain may seem pretty amazing at first, but following the advice of Dr. Decker to reread the characteristics, you will soon become as good a prognosticator yourself. You may even see how the FBI and media, already being well versed in the subject of narcissism are manipulating the president into "unforced" blunders.

This book is full of lies, as said by the author, who is anonymous.He says it was written just before Trump took office, but it was printed and released only April 2018 according to the very last page, on the bottom. It is worthless. It is not an FBI portrait as the title says, which the author also acknowledges.

The authors name is secret. This pamphlet racks credibility. It is a general hodgepodge extracted from elementary psychological texts. The conclusion, while could several accurate predictions, the balance of predictions are nothing more than listing campaign promises made by the president.

Interesting to read more of what could be driving this awful man as he cheats and lies his way through the whole of society. Trouble is, as I read the book, I identified so much with Trump's character, I'm now changing my own persona!

26 pages. Not an FBI profile.

From the back cover: "Please note this profile does not come from the FBI, it is merely in the style of an FBI Behavioral analysis. The author has researched FBI profiling techniques and has compiled the information into this thorough profile of Donald Trump in order to predict Behavior........ Dr. Decker is merely a pen name"

I could have compiled this just from watching the Nightly News.

joanna cibrian
This book is misleading the readers since it's cover. It's not clear who the author is; he even had had experience as an FBI profiler. Au contraire he read a book about it and tried to write something based on what he read in another book. It could easily be a bad high-school homework. There are much better readings at the store, for example, https://www.the store.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=the+dangerous+case+of+donald+trump&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Athe+dangerous+case+of+donald+trump (excluding this title).

I'm asking for a refund, despite the low cost of the book. It's a quest of honor.

laurie enrico
Starts with a section describing narcissistic personalities and then makes some predictions about his presidency. Was written before the inauguration and, while it does make some pretty spot-on predictions for Trump's actions it doesn't go far enough - seems to say he could have a more-or-less "normal" but rather unsuccessful presidency whereas what we have is this
insane clown destroying our country's position in the world.

tammy dillardcowart
The author clearly identifies the moniker "Dr. Decker" as a pseudonym but says absolutely nothing about his credentials if any. Most of the text contains grammar errors and slang. While Narcissistic Personality disorder is a legitimate psychological condition, terms like "ass-kisser" is not likely found in the DSM-V. Such terms would also not likely be found in any FBI profile due to its unprofessional nature.

In short, think critically...this author is a charlatan playing at being a professional expert. I doubt he or she has more than a basic high school education.

This is more of a booklet than a book. It is easily read in about 30 minutes. In such a short space, the author has made some incredibly accurate predictions. This president has done, in a period of less than four months, most of what the author predicted.

geri chesner
This book is very short and points out obvious things. It is not written by anyone who actually works in the FBI and it is not some leaked official document. It has the simplistic personality evaluation similar to the very early FBI profiles; the finding seem to be amazingly prophetic, but are really common sense. I would actually say, as a stanch hater of Trump, I actually thought the language was Extreme. Anyone with even a bit of sympathy or agreement with Trump’s views would absolutely reject it this book. Preaching to the choir.

The scientific method is turning over in its grave. No psychologist who profiles, even a camel, would sign off on this faux science. The author (?) does not know the science and art of profiling. Shoddy work. Worth a tenth of a star, for showing up

Too short and too flip. Not a serious study, which it should have been. Just a stupid joke. NOT a REAL FBI Profile, so the title is a LIE. NO FBI agaents were involved in producing this very slim and vapid bit of nothing...something a third-grader could have written with more skill and veracity. The idea that the title says that this is an FBI Profile is sheer fiction and this boo should be PULLED from the maret as a stupid and misleading act of false advertising.

If you've scanned written or televised news a few times a week, you already know this info. I've not the time or energy to verify this, but so much of this book sounded all the stuff in print and on TV at the beginning of the year. I'm curious about his FBI-ness, and his doctor-ness as well.

This "book" is an unbelievable sham. I cannot believe the comments of several reviewers of this "book" who gave it excellent or good ratings. This "book" is so shallow and lacking in any reputable commentary. Dr. Decker is a pen name (of course, who would ever want one's name attached to this piece of work.) It makes a huge deal of Donald Trump being classified as a narcissist. Anyone who has had any past knowledge of Trump's behavioral patterns clearly recognizes him as a narcissist. Supposedly, this "book" uses sophisticated behavioral profiling to predict Trump's behaviors as President. Several traits of a narcissist are listed: bully, liar, attention craver bends rules etc.. Anyone who has even the most basic knowledge of how a typical narcissist Is likely to act or behave easily could predict that person's (Trump's) presidential behaviors. This "book" is a very simplistic effort to draw conclusions from what is offered as factual information. This "book" is shameful. It doesn't even contain page numbers, the name of the publisher (I assume it was self-published), or any sources at all. Certainly, the market for this "book" is "Trump Haters." I certainly classify myself within this category. However, based upon the commentary on the back cover of this book, I expected at least a modicum of honesty and professional approach. This "book" has neither. the store should be embarrassed by the offering of this product. Any potential buyers: don't be totally mislead. Please don't encourage the selling of any other "books" of this type by purchasing it.

There are at least two problems with this book:

1. The title is misleading. It is NOT and FBI profile. By the authors own admission, it is his opinion. One does not become an FBI profiler unless:

a. He works for the FBI and
b. Has extensive training in profiling.

2. The author claims that this analysis is unbiased. I saw no evidence of that.

The author lists several symptoms of Narcissism in an attempt to prove his point rather than presenting the specific symptoms as a mental health professional might. I would add that of all the symptoms listed I found eleven that seemed to support his claim. If that is even statistically relevant. I am no Mental Health professional, however.

I don't know whether Trump is or is not a Narcissist. It may well be one of many issues needing to be addressed. The author, however, has not demonstrated expertise in this field.

I would not recommend the book.

Not worth the $0.99! Of the information included in this book, 90% was obvious, known information already. The rest is spotty at best in terms of accuracy. If this is FBI profiling, get me an application because this was amateur at best and again, not worth even the $0.99 I paid on Black Friday deal! Lol

Despite the fact the author claims it is an unbiased look, it is actually very biased. He had stated that narcissists don't follow through yet goes on to predict that Trump will accomplish what he said he will do during his campaign speeches. The author sounded like those were 'bad' goals. um, sorry but that's exactly what we hired him to do. The book is a waste of time to read.

Prophetic. A very accurate analysis of Trump's personality and a suggestion as to how he would act/react in potential situations. This book was written before Trump took office and has very accurately predicted many, many, of Trump's actions. I am personally very upset with Trump and unsettled by his behavior. I found that in reading this book I could see order in Trump's actions, whereas before I saw just insanity. I am counting the days until Trump is gone but meantime, this gave me insight. I highly recommend it. In fact, I'd love for him the read it. Maybe it would embarrass him to see he is so predictable.

I found this book to be a quick look into what's in store for our future outcome, With having such a small minded president and feeling like petty much anyone could probably I also found it to be quite accurate for someone with little experience in profiling. A lot of what was said in this book has already happened . I can't believe how close he was to all the horrible things Trump has done sense he's been in office. I also hate to think that if the author was that accurate about the beginning of Trumps misguided stupidly how close will his profile be later down the line. The things that Donald Trump will do to curb his insanity and his crazy ideas about making America great again can only mean terror and violence upon the american people while taking away what we all hold dear in our hearts and that's our pursuit to happiness in a country we all love and call home... I completely recommend this book to anyone that has sat and wondered what actually go on inside of Donald Trump head and what makes him tick, and how such a hateful selfish perverted and very unstable man could possible

The beginning of this book is an analysis of Trumps personality using FBI profiling principles. It is very interesting and in my opinion accurate.

Almost all of this book has already happened, except for his not getting re-elected.The author states the publication date well into the text. I saw no predictions that show what specifics are going to happen next year. The diagnostic criteria was more professionally done by Laurence O'Donnell, than the author who claims to be a Psychiatrist.I think this book is possibly a scam,but the information itself is accurate up to March. It reads more like a news summery up to March twenty fourth, not written by a health professional.I would not recommend this book, even though I am an avowed Trump critic.

What a disappointment. The "book" can be read in under an hour and is redundant. I was really excited about this book and found the title and sample thought-provoking. It seems like someone thought this was an easy way to make money off a hot topic. Your money is better spent on Malcolm Nance or someone who takes the time to write an argument.

With President Trump's first "100 Days" behind him, several projections/predictions of this author are "spot on," while other areas seem to be painted with such a "wide brush" plus that of the presidents actions are likely regardless of profile findings could be predicted. Hence the reason for my rating of 4 stars.

In closing too..... I do feel this author compiled his book in a very fair and unbiased way.

Its not as simple as “narcisissm” or NPD ... observationally, likely a sociopath, and possible attention and language disorders, and undereducated for the job, informally a sadist ... people surrounding him with narcissistic and other qualities ... the White House organizational personality is similar ...

If you consider 10 pages to be a book, then by all means purchase this essay, but know that the information it contains is readily and amply available by simply googling the term "narcissist". As for the author's predictions; for those readers who were observant of Trump's behavior throughout the campaign, the author had nothing further to offer. Save your three bucks. This is a scam.

Trump's Brain: An FBI Profile of Donald Trump: Predicting Trump's Actions and Presidency by Dr. Decker is a great book I was thoroughly engrossed in. This is written by a FBI profiler and put out of before Trump was sworn in. Everything he said was right so far. He did say Trump would be accused of corruption of justice but gets off and not impeached. I hope this part is not true. It is a short book and does not have any opinions, just facts based on personality profile. Great book.

Every one of our Senators, Representatives, and all those in the Dept of Justice should take the half hour or less required to read this profile. It will give them plenty of insight to what motivates Mr. Trump and what it might take to survive his administration...and possibly help the American people survive it as well. God's speed to Mr. Mueller for everyone's sake.

I chose 3 stars simply because I would have liked to have seen somewhat greater depth of inquiry. But maybe that's not within the profiler's scope. An interesting take on the state of things, to be sure. No "deep state" references or finger pointing, though. Again, most likely not the profiler's job. So we end up with a picture of a a seriously disturbed and possibly dangerous head of our country, operating entirely on his own deranged recognizance. No news by now, but unsettling, to say the least.

It would certainly be interesting to see annual or bi-annual updates or bulleted listings of Dr. Record's points and their proving or disproving events.

I LIKE THAT DR DECKER PENNED THIS JAN 19 INAUGURATION DAY PUB JAN 23 THIS IS MORE IN THE STYLE OF A CLINICAL PSYCH BRIEF NON PARTY MORE FACTOR BASED INFERENCES BASED ON CLINICAL PERSONALITY WORKUP AS WELL AS LONG ESTABLISHED TRAITS THAT CORESPOND TO PSYCHIATRIC DIAGNOSTIC CONVENTIONS. THESE ARE PRESENTED CLEARLY WITH MUCH EFFORT TO REMAIN NEUTRAL.
THIS REMINDS ME OF THE SIMILAR WORKUP ON HITLER ORDERED DURING THE EARLY DAYS OF HIS COMING TO POWER . SURPRISINGLY ACCURATE IT ALSO CORRECTLY PREDICTED MANY THINGS INCLUDING
HOW IF THE WAR WENT BADLY HITLER WOULD EVENTUALLY WITHDRAW BLAME HIS FAILURES ON TRAITOROUS GENERALS, UNWORTHY GERMAN PEOPLE & WEAK AXIS PARTNERS. BESIDES BEING THE FIRST TIME DOCTORS
HAD TRIED TO DO AN ANALYTICAL STUDY BY PROXY IT BROKE GROUND AS USEFUL 'LIGITIMATE TOOL' FOR PREDICTING AND UNDERSTANDING & WAS NOTEWORTHY FOR PREDICTING HIS COMMITTING SUICIDE

WITH THIS IN MIND I DOVE INTO DR DECKERS BRIEF ON TRUMP LOOKING FOR ANSWERS AND POSSIBILITIES OF OUTCOMES.
I WAS NOT DISSAPOINTED, AND IT HAS SOME INTERESTING INSIGHTS CHECK IT OUT FOR YOURSELF

I'm not even sure this was written by anyone who's ever set foot in an FBI office. Certainly didn't come across like anything professional. The last section might be useful for someone who basically knows nothing about Donald Trump, beyond the fact that he's currently president of the U. S. and has a lot of citizens very worried about his mental health. Best I can say is that for $3.17, it satisfied my curiosity to find out what this slender volume was all about. Cannot recommend.

As I read the description of a narcissistic personality, I could think of examples of Trump's behavior with almost all listed traits. Though written at the time of inauguration,many of the author's predictions related to Trump's behavior are already happening!

Everything that was predicted in this book already happened or happening. It was written before he even set foot into the Oval office, released just three days after. Read this very short book and be prepared.

Surprisingly accurate predictions based on the profile of Trump"s personality make up. I would have greatly appreciated more discussion of the scientific/[psychological basis and the steps in the analysis which led to the conclusions and predictions made by the author. Still and all, a very intriguing and insightful work.

Very interesting. This came out right as Trump took over but already things written have come to pass. Everything about Trump is unsettling. He is so involved with himself and the Russian scandal, I think that with all the chaos he is causing and not really watching the country, we could be an easy target for the next terrorist attack which he will blame on anyone else.

This is basically a self-published pamphlet, written by an anonymous person, giving an FBI-like profile of Trump. The author states that he wrote the book in January 2017, but the print date Is October 7, 2017. Anyone following the news would already know almost everything that the author predicts Trump will do. For me the most interesting statement in the book is this: "While there is currently talk about impeachment for possible collusion by Trump with Russia for election hacking, no evidence will be found." Could be, but makes me wonder if this is actually a subtle Russian propaganda pamphlet.

Thought there might be some profiling that would be new insight into Trump's personality, but 23 pages later, I had learned nothing new about the man. But some of the predictions have already come true, & some, in regard to the future of the US economy, are pretty sobering.

The authors must admit that Mr. Trump, being a pure prototype of personality and characterilogical dysfunctions, is also a very easy target to profile.

The scariest aspect of Mr. Trump seems to have already been exploited by the Russians: his colossal incompetence! This is a subtext these authors chose not to expand on in their spot-on analysis. Trump, despite his billions, is a shaky empty vessel waiting to be filled, and both the GOP ideologues and the Russians want to fill him up with all of their worse ideas.

Surely, the author's should have pointed out that incompetence is a force multiplier of all of Trump's worse personality and character traits.

In fact, I think it is fair to say that so far, incompetence alone has allowed Mr. Trump to become a vessel for misguided ideas, and ill-fated anti-democratic "side projects." His treasonous attachment to, and involvement with, the Russians is just the most glaring case in point. It is simply inconceivable to imagine that a Republican president would allow the KGB photographers free-reign in the Oval Office of the White House?

Who knows what will be found at the bottom of this KGB rathole? Common sense tells us that
"team Trump" has been in bed with Vladimir Putin. Given the nature of his real estate business and the sanctions against Russia, money-laundering comes immediately to mind.

The bevy of horrible psychopathic personality and character traits pointed out here aside, Mr. Trump already, in the first 100 days of his presidency, simply because he is "in way over his head," has become a "force multiplier" for bad ideas, and incoherent policies. He has become captive to the tweeter sphere and whoever he talk to last. To say that he shames the USG would be an understatement. He is like kryptonite to our democratic processes.

We can already see him grasping for any lifeline he can find to save himself from his own incompetence. Watching him flail about is too scary even to be funny.

As the authors here predicted he would do, he has tried to circle the family wagons, but even there, there is powerful little for him to draw on -- and ditto this for his laughable cabinet picks too. We thus have a president, beginning his tenure with a ship leaking from every plank on the deck.

Because of his colossal incompetence, Mr. Trump already in his first three months, has used up all of his lifelines and is now punting on fourth-and-one from his own end-zone? The reality TV scripts will not save him this time.

His only fallback is to now use the old Obama trick of leading from behind, thus becoming a willing stand-in for all of the bad ideas and the weak racist psychology of those who voted for him. Currying favor with his racist base, instead of leading them to higher moral ground, is how Mr. Trump punts.

It is his last and only fallback position. He knows that no matter how incompetent he is, they will still follow him through the ideological gates of hell. He has even said that he could shoot someone, and they would still follow him? How sick does a nation have to be not to react to such a statement like this with horror?

Thus, the real negative power of Donald Trump lies not just in his own characterilogical flaws and psycho-pathology, but also in the fact that he is a force multiplier for the GOP's own platform of ideological horrors. He is already being used as a vehicle to greatly magnify all of the negative traits in him that those who voted for him want to see acted out as racist ideology. It is a clear case of the blind leading the blind. The Russians have already picked upon this and are exploiting this fatal weakness in our system: A single racist dog whistle, and the US racist dog always heels.

When these GOP ideas all prove to be just as bad "in practice" as they are "in theory," as we already know, Trump's backers will not then turn away from them, but will "double-down" on them. Like the Trump family, they too will circle the wagons along with the Trump family, preferring to die on their ideological swords, rather than rally to save the republic.

In a life-and-death ideological struggle," as the Civil War has already proven, they will always choose to support "their man" and their own racist ideas over saving the nation. You can already see this in their number one apologist Rick Santorum, who will support and parrot every bad idea that Trump tweets,the USA be-damned!.

We all know that this GOP train wreck will not end well, and is destined to get infinitely worse:

Since the Republican Party itself is already little more than an "ideological trash can" for bad and backward ideas -- like anti-evolution, anti-climate change, anti-abortion, anti-anything that requires stepping into the modern world. And Trump's non-leadership is only offering to validate these bad ideas, there are no internal controls governing this run away presidential train down into the abyss. This means that at least for the next four years, the USA itself is in quite a pickle.

The boys who went to the polls crying liberty and freedom at every turn, as they pulled the lever for Trump, or now prepared to see the republic go down in flames, following this treasonous man-child oligarch on his mindlessly destructive path.

Who is the winner in this run away train to nowhere? So far, it appears to be the Russians. Vladimir Putin's KGB spies all must be doubled-over in laughter at the American clowns falling all over themselves as they tumble out of the Trump clown mobile to nowhere. And these are the same people who called Barack Obama a "Red diaper baby," "a Manchurian candidate," and a "dyed-in the wool Communist?" Go figure?

Donald J. Trump is the best case in the world that "We get the kind of democracy we deserve." Four stars

Any person who has worked in business will recognize and agree with the behavior. The man is the kind of boss no one likes or likes to work for. The essence of vulture capitalism becomes incarnate. The Trump brand incarnate.

Waste of time and money. Profile/predictions reiterate the President's campaign promises. This includes Trump's statement that the (right) way to repeal Obamacare will take two years of work (profile states healthcare change year three) and that an early attempt will fail. This booklet focuses ina very general way. I could have written it.

While I don't necessarily disagree with all of the author's "predictions," it was difficult to read this conflation of narcissistic personality disorder and criminal psychopathy. In additions, since the author opts to write under a pen name their responsibility to prove their claims is much greater. I found little evidence to support the predictions presented. In the end it comes across as an opinion piece rather than a profile.

Politically motivated disinformation and scare tactics. Deals solely with stereotyping Trump as a narcissist and then goes on to explain why narcissists are bad. No real review of Trump, Trump's past decisions or decision style at all. Waste of fonts!

Spoiler Alert!!!!! If you really want to know what Trump is going to do....listen to him. He is the first president to actually do what he said he would do and keep his campaign promises. That is why America believed in him, voted for him, and why he will be reelected in 2020. God Bless America!
