Description

In his book, former FBI director James Comey shares his never-before-told experiences from some of the highest-stakes situations of his career in the past two decades of American government, exploring what good, ethical leadership looks like, and how it drives sound decisions. His journey provides an unprecedented entry into the corridors of power, and a remarkable lesson in what makes an effective leader.

Mr. Comey served as director of the FBI from 2013 to 2017, appointed to the post by President Barack Obama. He previously served as U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, and the U.S. deputy attorney general in the administration of President George W. Bush. From prosecuting the Mafia and Martha Stewart to helping change the Bush administration's policies on torture and electronic surveillance, overseeing the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation as well as ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, Comey has been involved in some of the most consequential cases and policies of recent history.

    I was very curious to read this book and see Mr. Comey’s viewpoint on many subjects. I was impressed by his candor, his observations and his core values. Media coverage seems to criticize his opinions or observations, calling into question is true integrity. I view it a little differently. I see it as an insight into his thoughts during each of those times. I don’t necessarily see it as a political viewpoint he has. For example: we all think something about our bosses or someone in our lives in a position of power. We think something about them, but our body language and words we use are different. The media saying these thoughts were unnecessary. I think he did this throughout the entire book, which remained consistent through each phase of his life. He provided facts and then gave his insight so we could understand his thought process. This wasn’t just saved for the last few chapters (The Trump chapters). Bravo, Mr. Comey! I enjoyed reading your book and appreciate all you have done for America throughout the years.

    Just like McCabe he needs the money to pay for his lawyers. He should’ve just made a go fund me instead of writing a gossip rag like this. Desperate people will do anything to help out these criminals masquerading as law enforcement.

    Comey’s life story is presented in a fascinating yet relatable way. His insights into situations where most of us will never tread are riveting, and his argument for ethical leadership is compelling. A Higher Loyalty is well worth the read.

    This is a book I could not put down although it is a gourgeous spring day outside. Comey writes about his life, starting what shaped him as a boy to working as the FBI director under Obama and then Trump. I had been very impressed by Comey when I heard him talk to the senate after his firing, I sensed that he was a very honest, principled man, very loyal to the constituition and his country. That certainly is validated in this book. I admire Comey's gift of self-reflection and honest evaluation.

    This artfully written book is an attempt clear his name. I want my money back. If I wanted to read a book about real victims I would read Into Thin Air again. This boob need to lick his wounds and go away unless he wants to testify again with a lie detector.

    Not worth the the money. Just watch the news to get what little is of any real interest in the book.

    I was very disappointed in this book because I felt it to not reveal anything not already known. I do not recommend this book.
