A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership by James Comey

In his forthcoming 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.

About the Author

On September 4, 2013, James B. Comey was sworn in as the seventh Director of the FBI.

A Yonkers, New York native, Jim Comey attended the College of William and Mary and the University of Chicago Law School. After law school, Comey returned to New York and joined the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York as an Assistant U.S. Attorney. There, he took on numerous crimes, most notably Organized Crime in the case of the United States v. John Gambino, et al. Afterwards, Comey became an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia, where he prosecuted the high-profile case that followed the 1996 terrorist attack on the U.S. military’s Khobar Towers in Khobar, Saudi Arabia.

Comey returned to New York after 9/11 to become the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. At the end of 2003, he was tapped to be the Deputy Attorney General at the Departmentof Justice (DOJ) under then-U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft and moved to the Washington, D.C. area.

Comey left DOJ in 2005 to serve as General Counsel and Senior Vice President at Defense contractor Lockheed Martin. Five years later, he joined Bridgewater Associates, a Connecticut-based investment fund, as its General Counsel. In early 2013, Comey became a Lecturer in Law, a Senior Research Scholar, and Hertog Fellow in National Security Law at Columbia Law School.

Regardless of content I give this book it’s rating because it’ll be though provoking. In today’s political arena, we all need fresh blood. So whatever you’re views & stances are any book that gets your hearts and imaginations going, maybe even to the extreme side of the spectrum, then it’s worth it. The idea of getting involved is more important to this country than any one idealistic viewpoint by itself. The concept of standing up for what you believe in is our country at it’s core. Read this book: don’t like it? Go do something. Love it? Then go do something.

Interesting memoir by ex-FBI director Comey. Sheds light on many of the news stories we've been hearing for months now.

This book is like many books that revolve around the 2016 election, a must read. Whatever party you belong to, we are living in a part of history that is so detrimental to America's future that we need to learn and understand. Look how people today still talk about Watergate. Whether you like James Comey or not, this book is another insight into what the 2016 and 2017 situation was crossing with dems and republicans but from the vantage point of the FBI. Do I think James Comey comes across as selfserving, no well no different than any other author or even the Trump himself. The book holds value and weight and to be taken as nothing but information from someone who was on the inside of everything that was going on. Great read.

If you watch the news at all or read the 1 star reviews on that *other site* by people who appear not to have read the book you will be led to believe this is a book about Trump, and bashing him, or outing him as unfit in some way. Especially if you know that the RNC has gone out of their way to create a website just ahead of the book release for the sole purpose of Comey bashing. So let me bust that myth. This is not a book about Trump. There are no big jaw dropping Trump secrets here. This is a book about James Comey, from his early childhood until the here and now. Comey touches on childhood memories, being bullied, later on participating or at least turning a blind eye to bullyng himself. He speaks on his experience being home alone with his brother when the "Ramsey Rapist" broke into his house. He tells you how and why he decided to pursue law as a career instead of becoming a doctor. There are humorous anecdotes about his first job in the grocery store and yes some about his final days as FBI director. You do not have to be a fan of Comey or any of his decisions to enjoy this book. You may or may not be satisfied with his explanation of why he decided to make such public announcements on Hilary's emails, but that is a small part of this book. Personally I was not satisfied and he does admit that others may have handled it differently. If you are only looking for bombshells this book is not for you. By the time it gets to the visit to alert Trump to the salacious allegations the book is 70% over, because as I said this is not a book about Trump. Even if I do not agree with Comey's decisions to publicly give his opinion on one candidate while withholding the fact that there is an investigation surrounding the other even with the "classified info" that he says we still do not know about I was still able to enjoy this book. I agree with his assessment in the last televised interview he gave, that if Comey is an idiot he is at least an honest idiot.

This book brings to the fore-front a value this County has lost not only in Washington but throughout the Nation, TRUTH. I found the book to be open, honest and fair as long as eye-opening. I am not an avid reader but read this book fairly quickly. I have recommended it to several friends to see their take. Enjoy your read.

Depending on your view, either you would love or dislike the book. If your a Trump supporter, you wouldn't like this book if not a supporter, you would love it. For me, it explains a lot. Comey, to me was in a catch 22. Dawned if he did or dawned it he don't. Never was happy for what he did, but understandable. As got Trump, should be ashamed.

I’m not a huge Comey fan. But; this book is a must read no matter where you fall on the political spectrum. History will not be kind to this president or his rabid supporters who ignore the rule of law and subvert our democracy and constitution. There are no winners in this scenario.

I will say upfront I disliked Comey because of re-opening of the Clinton investigation days before the election. After his firing I heard more directly from him as a person and human being that interested me enough to read his story. His tale was beyond thought provoking - it resonated through to my very soul. I am richer I believe for it and I want to thank him.
