Join this renowned political commentator as he analyses Trump’s double dose of narcissism and hubris in its historical, political and medical context.
Lord Owen was an MP from 1966 until 1993, Labour Foreign Secretary in 1977-79 and a founding member of the short-lived Social Democratic Party.
In Hubris: The Road to Donald Trump, David Owen analyses and describes the mental and physical condition of political leaders past and present. There have been depressives, alcoholics, narcissists, populists, those affected by hubris syndrome and those driven by their religious beliefs. But Donald Trump, a world class narcissist, presents a completely different set of issues. This book goes a long way to answer the question: is Trump persuadable?
