Description

As this best seller predicted, Trump has only grown more erratic and dangerous as the pressures on him mount. This new edition includes new essays bringing the audiobook up to date - because this is still not normal.

Originally released in fall 2017, The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump was a runaway best seller. Alarmed Americans and international onlookers wanted to know: What is wrong with him?

That question still plagues us. The Trump administration has proven as chaotic and destructive as its opponents feared, and the man at the center of it all remains a cipher.

Constrained by the APA’s “Goldwater rule”, which inhibits mental health professionals from diagnosing public figures they have not personally examined, many of those qualified to weigh in on the issue have shied away from discussing it at all. The public has thus been left to wonder whether he is mad, bad, or both.

The prestigious mental health experts who have contributed to the revised and updated version of The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump argue that their moral and civic "duty to warn" supersedes professional neutrality. Whatever affects him affects the nation: From the trauma people have experienced under the Trump administration to the cultlike characteristics of his followers, he has created unprecedented mental health consequences across our nation and beyond. With eight new essays, this edition will cover the dangerous ramifications of Trump's unnatural state. 

It’s not all in our heads. It’s in his. 

This program is read by Alex Hyde-White, William Dufris, Hillary Huber, Rosa Maria Bramble, Nanette Gartrell, Leonard L. Glass, Prudence Gourguechon, Luba Kessler, Bandy X. Lee, James R.

This must be heard whether Republican or Democrat

Whatever political background this must be heard by everyone to understand the state of uncertainty and craziness we are living in

Listen now before it's too late.

It's sad that this was released months ago, and it is even more accurate and important now than back then.

Narration?

An excellent group of contributors with valid points. I found most sections would have benefitted from professional narration.

Holy $!-!/T they knew this 2 years ago?

Never did I imagine a Trump Presidency would be as bad as it has been. I never expected him to threaten those investigating him (re:the military and cops and bikers are on my side comment) But these professionals knew that the norms don't apply to him. That he is a baseless character incapable of remorse and living in his own reality of alt-facts. Many of the most outrageous things Trump has done are flat out predicted by the authors in this book. I would say this is required reading for anyone interested in the how, why and what's next for this Trump presidency.

This is scary stuff!

I have often reacted to things that our president has done or said by thinking that this is just not normal. This book, authored by 27+ professionals with sufficient medical credentials to make that assessment, confirms those fears. The contributors to this book offer their professional opinion, based on the presidents own statements and actions, that Trump may not be just an unconventional president, but a sick one. None of the contributors have done an actual examination of the president, but with the wealth of video and audio available through todays 24/7 news reporting, these experts each independently reached a unanimous conclusion that the president's current state exceeds "not normal" and approaches a level of psychosis. This book is both truly entertaining and scary!

Experts discuss the world's biggest problem

This important book consists of stand-alone articles written by 27 mental health professionals. The articles necessarily differ in style and overall quality, but the majority are very informative.

Almost every discussion of psychiatric symptoms is right on target, with abundant examples in each case. If you think our president might suffer from narcissism, sociopathy, bipolar disorder, or cognitive decline, you are right- these authors make an excellent case for a combination of those dangerous conditions.

The most important conclusion of every article is that we are faced with a leader who is unfit to lead, and who could easily drag the world into a nuclear war in the service of his fragile ego. Solving the problem is more difficult than diagnosing it, but one chapter even discusses the application of the 25th amendment.

Disappointng

If you could sum up The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump in three words, what would they be?

The authors argue that the standard ethical restraint against diagnosing political figures with whom they have no clinical relationship, should not apply in the case of Donald Trump becausehe presents a unique danger and therefore, they have a countervailing obligation to the public to inform and warn, . That makes sense to me and I gave no doubt that Trump qualifies for some abnormal psych diagnoses, but many if the essays lapse into partisan diatribes that give lie to the premise. I think Trump's an ass, but in the end, many of these essays are just cheap shots, cloaked in the gravitas of expertise.

Good Information from the pros

Overall, this is a very insightful book. The only thing is some of the narration seemed... flat. I absolutely appreciate the mental health professional involved, as they put their necks and careers on the line to answer the "duty to warn" call. It's also scary to gain insight on how they see the mental health of the president. I recommend this book to anyone who can concerns or questions regarding the Trunk presidency. I hope it encourages you to get involved, whether it's consistently voting, volunteering, donating, etc. We must, on both sides, restore order to our democracy.

A MUST Read!

The writers of this book are VERY clear about the danger Trump's mental state is to all of us. There are decades of evidence since Trump has been in the media from the time he was a young man. I'm grateful that these well-respected
professionals felt a strong DUTY to WARN us and wrote this book.

Trump in a Nutshell

Excellent review of the mental status of Donald Trump. Those who most need to read it probably won't, unfortunately.

Scary, uh yeah!

What to say really....”Damned if you do, damned if you don’t comes to mind.”
Is it so difficult to understand those who will say this Audible book is just another attempt at dividing our nation? Is it so difficult to understand those who will say this Audible book is a powerful call to the American people’s to pull their heads out of the sand and heed the warnings? Well yes to both questions.

I believe that the people who elected this president and continue to support him will do so no matter what he does. As Trump said himself, “I could shoot someone in the streets in New York and still not lose support.” (Paraphrased) it seems for now, he was correct.
Can or will rational thinking adults even listen to this book with an open mind? Or perhaps linking rational thinking with Trump supporters is a stretch. I don’t think it is entirely because many were and still are my friends. It’s given new meaning to my allegiance however to understand and accept friends who I now know think so differently from me.
Is it unreasonable to ask, indeed require the president to undergo rigorous psychiatric evaluation. Police officers have to have evaluations before the hiring process because you will be carrying a weapon and have authority to temporarily take away someone’s freedom. Yes, there are flaws in as much as we know there are police officers who somehow slipped through, but the important difference is that we (I am a retired law enforcement officer), don’t have the nuclear arsenals at our disposal should we have a severe psychotic moment(s). Same goes for military intelligence personnel and many other employees in high risk positions.

We can only hope that the instability of this president that is so obvious to millions of people yet somehow disbelieving of millions others, will not have to take us to the precipice of a nuclear holocaust before we finally agree on “The Dangerous Case of Donald J. Trump”

Trump: An Existential Threat

Many of the 27 authors don't mince words: Our civilization and species existence are now in the hands of a madman. He is not only mad (delusional), he is bad (has no conscience). His megalomania maybe the end of us all. For the sake of humanity he must ejected from the Whitehouse.
