Description

A Higher Loyalty 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.

    James Comey spoke truth from the heart and pulled,no punches in this revetting account of his years in both public and private service, the challenges of balancing family life with that of being FBI Director, and finally his ultimate challenges with Donald,Trump, the 3rd President he worked for.

    This book isn’t about politics — it’s about principles. We need to seriously consider what values we hold in common as a nation. This book is a good starting point for such a conversation.

  • Nothing to do with integrity. At all.

    This guy flip flopped between the truth and a loyalty to the Clintons, and because of that he lost his connection to both, and ended up getting fired by even his next boss. This book was tossed together in record time while he’s even still relevant, and is a cash grab and by a recently fired guy, and not a well thought through memoir about a career built on integrity. Sad.

    This book was amazing. Interestingly, trump and Clinton are really only a footnote-the main focus on this book is about ethical leadership, honesty, and the importance of an independent FBI. It’s unfortunate that the main meaning behind this book will be lost in the noise of politics -I’ve been in the corporate world most of my adult life and I think any corporation who actually believes in a positive work culture should make this book required reading. Side note-on the Hillary and trump stuff, Comey did make a compelling argument that he thought rationally through an extraordinary set of circumstances that no one has ever faced before in his position. He was thoughtful-and I agree with him-given the situation, his hands were tied. If he didn’t say something about reopening the investigation, in this climate, the FBI could have been completely dismantled. Comey is a true hero. Comey will make you laugh and cry, but more importantly, I have a new respect for the brave men and women in the FBI and the organization as a whole. One of the laugh out loud moments I remember best: “No, they hand write each line” You have to read the book in order to understand why this is so freaking hilarious.

    .James Comey provides rare insights into the " behind the scenes " life behind closed doors in Washington. He has written an outstanding book that should be read by all who care about the future of America..
