Professor Wayne is frequently quoted by White House journalists, regularly appears on television and radio news shows, and lectures widely at home and abroad to international visitors, college students, federal executives, and business leaders.
Praise for Personality and Politics: Obama For and Against Himself

"This fine book goes a long way toward capturing the essence of the complex, elusive, and politically important Barack Obama."---Fred I. Greenstein, Princeton University

"The impact of presidential personality on governing in the White House is one of the great puzzles of presidential politics. There is no one better than Steve Wayne at helping us solve this puzzle and achieve a better understanding of the Obama presidency."---George C. Edwards III, Texas A&M University

"Stephen Wayne combines the rigor of a political scientist with the insights of a psychologist to explain how President Obama's character intersects with politics to produce the policies of his administration. Wayne explores the tensions between Obama's ideals and the reality of American politics as well as the fissures between his transformational vision and his transactional style. If you want to know what makes Obama tick, this book is a good place to start."---James P. Pfiffner, George Mason University

"Influential presidency scholar Stephen Wayne has given us a wonderfully written and probing analysis of President Obama's character and decision-making style. He helps explain Obama's strengths as well as liabilities. This is by far one of the best examinations of Obama as a political and public leader."---Thomas E. Cronin, Colorado College
