Product Description

"Comey''s conversational tone instantly connects with the listener, and hearing him deliver the book''s highly charged contents in his own voice brings authenticity and immediacy to the presentation...This greatly anticipated, revelatory memoir needs to be heard." ― AudioFile Magazine

In his audiobook, A Higher Loyalty, 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.

More praise for A Higher Loyalty:

"It was essential that Comey himself narrate this book, not only because his absence would have distracted listeners familiar with his voice but also because only the author could credibly convey the range of raw emotions emanating from the experiences he shares from this most eventful of lives." - Booklist, Starred Review

Review

"[James] Comey''s reading is polished and confident." -New York Times Book Review

"Only former FBI director James Comey himself could convincingly narrate this audiobook. Fortunately, Comey''s conversational tone instantly connects with the listener, and hearing him deliver the book''s highly charged contents in his own voice brings authenticity and immediacy to the presentation. Comey has a pleasant speaking voice, and he demonstrates a professional narrator''s command of pacing and intensity." -AudioFile

About the Author

On September 4, 2013, James 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 Department of 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.

This book was intelligently written. Basically a personal and professional autobiography, I found it appealing from a human aspect as well as informational as to the various workings within the justice system as well as the FBI. I found that I grew to respect Mr Comey more and more as the book progressed, and, as angry as I was at the time of the disclosure re the Clinton emails, I now fully understand the torture of the decision he had to make. I do not see this work as partisan in any way. In fact, quite to the contrary, Mr Comey was true both to his personal standards for integrity as well as to his duties to his jobs and to his country. Sadly, his fate appears to the result of living in a world where integrity appears to be little more than a word in Webster''s dictionary. I recommend all to read A Higher Loyalty without bias. There is much to be learned about self respect as well as honor.

This tome is a self-serving-poor-me tome of little import.

As stated in the headline, Comey does little but whine about how he was mistreated by politicians, while denying any responsibility his own actions.

Best book I’ve read this year. Period. Superb honest commentary on leadership. Well documented. I wished I’d had this job prior to retiring when I was in a leadership position. Regardless of your feelings on the current political climate - the ethics and leadership component is superb. And the honest, well documented total embarrassment of our current political charade is well documented.

I have to say i was surprised of how good Comey writes. He is detailed, he takes you into whatever situation he is talking about. Totally takes you into his stories.

I can only imagine the "memos" he wrote! He has oh so many stories, some of them we know a little as were part of the news at one point or another. I finished the book maybe in 5 days?

I also realized that all the cristism he got from the press and newscasters for the orange comment was hot air. He does describe him as orange, but so he describes everyone else in each and every story. Thin, old, hair, pale, etc. I think they did not read the book at all.

I do recommend the book, and congratulate Comey for being such an entertaining writer. And i thank him for his service.

And Lordy, I hope there are tapes! :) and from all that is happening lately.. they probably exist!

James Comey had neither the intention nor the interest in being a major figure in the 2016 presidential election, but as director of the FBI he played a significant role during the late months of both parties’ campaigns. “A Higher Loyalty” is his telling of these tumultuous months, the months that followed, and the career that led up to his high position in the US government, and of his ultimate dismissal from that position.

The opening chapters of the book provide some important context for the book’s surreal conclusion. Comey talks about his childhood, about the early years of his career in law and in government service. He shares anecdotes about his family and his professional relationships. His role models were his bosses and mentors who guided him through his mistakes and recognized his potential. As a US attorney in New York, he prosecuted mob bosses. He learned about their customs and their behavior. All of this becomes germane later when he shares his observations of Donald Trump as president.

The book is written in a very clear and lucid style. Comey''s narrative is easy to follow and for the most part humble and believable. He definitely faced more agonizing decisions during the late months of the presidential campaign than most people will face in a lifetime, mostly due to the imbroglio surrounding Hillary Clinton’s e-mails. And life didn’t get any easier once Trump took office. The closing chapters of the book stand out as an important telling of seminal events in US history. His meetings and interactions with the new president were carefully documented. Comey clearly sensed the darkness that had descended on the country, and he struggled with the dishonesty emanating daily from the White House.

Not everyone is going to like “A Higher Loyalty”. Loudly shouted down as “fake news” by Trump and his followers, the book isn’t a pick-me-up for devotees of the 45th president. But it’s an eye-opener for those who want a meticulously documented and credible perspective from a law enforcement professional who served under multiple presidents.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. Comey is a great writer. It is a page-turner that both my husband and I could not put down. I thought it would be a boring book about leadership, but it is actually a well-written, informative book detailing several major collisions between American politics and our justice system. Comey gives the inside scoop on his interactions with past presidents and other important political figures while summarizing the major fbi investigations he has worked and/or led. Having seen a few Comey interviews, I was also worried that the best parts of the book had already been discussed by the media. Fortunately, that wasn''t a problem at all. There were plenty of fascinating details. In addition, although Comey definitely responds to his critics, he is most critical of himself. It is hard to walk away from this book without appreciating him as a guy capable of honest self-evaluation who can admit and learn from mistakes. That alone is a lesson in leadership and humanity.

The first surprise about this book is how well the author writes. He is for sure not your typical lawyer. The second is how interesting the whole book is. Of course, part of the reason for buying it is a glimpse of Trump up close and I had been warned in reviews that Trump doesn''t feature until near the end. I expected to want to skim read the early sections. But no. We are given an insightful behind the scenes look at the US justice system and its interaction with politics during the Bush and Obama years, plus get to meet key characters (including Bush and Obama, their Cabinet members and advisers) thanks to jobs earlier in the author''s career. And the author can write. Sometimes I laughed out loud. Sometimes I had a lump in my throat. At others I was on the edge of my seat. In summary, well worth a read.

Very well written and informative book - couldn''t put it down! So glad the author didn''t allow Trump to dominate or define his story or diminish his commitment to public service and the values he brought to his work. Good to hear the other side of what happened with Hillary Clinton''s emails and also to get his views on the various presidents he has worked with as well a his thoughts on what it takes to be a good and effective leader.

This is James Comey''s story, with the focus on his career in public service and all of it leading up to the two main events when he was head of the FBI: his handling of the Hillary Clinton email affair and his dealings with Donald Trump. Along the way, he has some interesting things to say about leadership and the need for public services to act transparently and ethically and to maintain public trust and credibility; he also gives insights into the workings of the American law enforcement and justice system, particularly in the upper echelons. I am sure that, as it is autobiographical, his story is sanitised and he identifies that some claim that "....[he is] in love with [his] own righteousness, [his] own virtue." but, after making due allowance, Comey still comes across as being a decent, honest and honourable person, with a strong sense of duty and commitment to serving and protecting his country and its citizens; little wonder that, when he ran headfirst into his complete, absolute, total antithesis in Trump, it turned into a train crash. One interesting point, which he does not labour but almost merely mentions in passing is that in interaction with Trump, Trump talks and the other party has to listen, hardly being allowed to speak and, if they do, not being listened to; in the next interaction, Trump starts from the position that everything he said last time has been accepted and agreed to, unequivocally, by the other party; this could be why Trump and other people (Kim of the DPRK, for example) come away from a meeting both knowing something has been agreed but with very different ideas of what it was. This is a very interesting read which, surprisingly, at times becomes a gripping page turner.

What an interesting man Jim Comey is, it was good that he started this book from his early years to allow the reader the chance to see that he is a loyal and truthful family man who has high morals. I''m glad it was not all about the United States worst ever president, Trump. It does however show that unless you continue to say yes to Trump you become an enemy. He lies continuously and I do hope one day Mr Comey can look back and think, "I told you" but I guess he is not that sort of man. In Scotland to "Trump" is when sound is released from the a $$hole, I think after reading towards the end of this book to "Trump" is very apt
