The President’s Therapist

The President’s Therapist by John Wareham, a "what if" novel wrapped in layers of reality, offers an unnerving “case study” of alcoholism in the White House. We enter a series of psychological and forensic intelligence forays engendered by the US Secret Service along with a certain Dr. Mark Alter, leadership psychologist and wizard at “coaching” damaged CEOs into restoring their acumen and performance. In this case, however, the patient is none other than President George W. Bush. Wareham’s 231-page book is a winner.
