Goodreads Review of A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership

"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."

Good morning, Roy Kelley I've just started reading it on my kindle, when I have a quiet moment....

Morning Roy, thank you for the recommendation.  I have heard from others as well that it is a great book regardless of your political affiliation. Have a good day!

There are lots of conversations going on about this book Roy!

Good morning Roy.  My wife is reading this now and I will have a go as soon as she's finished.

I wouldn't pay for this book even on a kindle - maybe someone will lend me a copy

Lise Howe sums it up well for me! Enjoy your day!

Good morning, Roy... I'm in the same camp as Lise Howe and Wayne Martin ... no way will I contribute money to Comey's cause by purchasing his book. 

Posted by Nina Hollander, Your Charlotte/Ballantyne/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Realtor (RE/MAX Executive | Charlotte, NC) about 1 month ago

Agree or disagree, Comey is intelligent and strives to do the right thing. I will read it.

This book is available at the library as are most of the books I read.

Ah, I see the politics discussion has stirred it up this morning. Comey is one of those polarizing figures - however, I certainly will give it a whirl as a read and try to have an open mind. Thanks for the suggestion -

Posted by Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD, REALTORS® in Clark County, WA (ViewHomes of Clark County - Nature As Neighbors) about 1 month ago

Roy, politics sure have been stirred this morning, and I have been working so many hours, know there is no time for a book right now.

Posted by Joan Cox, Denver Real Estate - Selling One Home at a Time (Metro Brokers - House to Home, Inc. - Denver Real Estate - 720-231-6373) about 1 month ago

Comey is likely as much responsible as the Russians for the outcome of the 2016 election.  His shenanigans while first making his statement that the investigation into Hillary's emails was still open, and then reversing himself a couple weeks later, likely influenced the vote.

There are many other books on my read list that will get my priority. I hope you enjoy it, Roy.
