"Finally, the unnerving, seemingly inexplicable phenomenon that is the political rise of Donald Trump explained--just in time to save democracy and the world. When Aaron James first published his groundbreaking and bestselling book Assholes : A Theory in 2012, little did he or we know that he had written one of the prophetic books of our time. Donald Trump was featured prominently in that book as an exemplary asshole, of course; in this urgent new broadside, Aaron James applies the tenets of asshole theory rigorously and directly to the man as Trump continues his relentless drive to become the Republican presidential candidate. Never has an account of the asshole as a major problem for the rest of us been more called for. Never have the techniques of what James calls 'asshole management' been so desperately needed. I'm not joking. A book of potentially world historical importance. At the very least an instant bestseller"--

Bought this for my dad for Christmas, last year. Should be required reading.

The Trumpster is a man of great compassion. As everyone should know, when he was $6 billion in the hole, he was being interviewed by one of those sycophantic reporters, while Donald was on the street just about to enter his limousine. A panhandler was nearby with a cup and sign begging for money. Donald looked down at the banker wannabe and commented to the reporter: // You see that man. He's got more money than I do. Look at his cup filled with dollar bills, while I'm six billion in the hole. \\ Then Trump boarded his chaffeured limousine and sped away.
What compassion!

I laughed at the idea of an academic study of the "asshole-ness" of Trump. After I read the book that initial laugh remains as the best thing I got from it. I didn't feel there was anything in the book that contributed to my evolving understanding of Trump.
