- Eye Opening
While working as a lawyer, former therapist Bill Eddy saw that clients who became embroiled in combative legal disputes tended to share a personality type – the same type exemplified by populists who have gained power in recent years around the globe. In this book, Eddy compares US President Donald Trump to reviled leaders like Hitler, Stalin and Mao. Like these men, Eddy writes, Trump is a “high-conflict personality,” who gained power by making emotional appeals, ginning up phony crises and relying on his media savvy. Only by identifying HCPs, Eddy argues, can opponents hope to thwart them.
