Herb Pearce, Presidential Profiles

This book explores the personalities of all United States Presidents, with the addition of understanding their Enneagram and Myers-Briggs personality types. It's a challenge to discover the real personality of each president due to the abundance of myth and image-making that surrounds the office in general.
