    Oh.... this is going to make a certain *president further soil himself. Heh heh. More popcorn please! *fake, illegitimate, criminal president ...

    As anticipated, this is a difficult book to review. In fact, I was in two minds about even reading it, though I am not unhappy that I did. On the one hand, I do feel I know Comey better and that he is, in many ways, a good, stand-up sort of guy (which he reiterates in every conceivable...

    All bullies are largely the same. They threaten the weak to feed some insecurity that rages inside them. I know. I?ve seen it up close. James Comey is a lawyer, and in A Higher Loyalty he has presented a case to the jury of American public opinion. He lays out the steps of his inte...

    Goodreads is crap. How can folks review or rate a book that hasn't even been released yet? Since we are rating a book we haven't read yet, I'll give it 5 stars just because it may cause trump to have a stroke. ...

    There are two things every reader should know about James Comey and his book. First, whatever your politics, whatever you may think of his decisions, Comey is a fine writer who has written an excellent book about leaders and leadership, a superb story teller with a knack for bringing...

    Inspiring. Can I just say that with all the many expectations I brought to the reading of this book, being inspired was not one of them. Yet, here I am. Inspired. I vehemently disliked James Comey over the Hillary Clinton email debacle. Now I realize that I was unfair. I didn?t kn...

    I have written to the publisher to ask whether they would like to send me a review copy of this book. If they do, I'll read it, but I'm not keen on giving money to the guy who probably made Trump president by reigniting the Hillary email server issue just before the 2016 election. T...

    And here I thought I couldn't hate Donald Trump more. ...

    I knew little about James Comey, the ex-FBI director, before he was brought to my attention and I'm sure many of yours, after being fired by Trump. Not so much fired as ambushed, since Trump didn't even have the decency to let him know he had been fired . Comey saw it on the TV while g...

    Superb. One may not agree with all of Comey?s decisions, but this book shows the rigor of his thinking and it?s hard to assail. The astonishing thing is that much of his life, in addition to the law, has involved the study of what constitutes optimal leadership. He?s thought long...

    I assert my right to call this a #realreview With three interrelated books about the current POTUS sitting on my TBR shelf, I chose to read and review them back to back, looking for insight into the man and some of his more recent activities. Admittedly, they do not constitute a for...

    Audiobook... read by James Comey Because I listened to James Comey talk about this book on network TV, - mostly the political aspects- the night before it?s release date- I thought I had a good idea of what to expect. Plus... I had already respected this man - and believed what he...

    I see many so-called conservative commentators, including some faith leaders, focusing on favorable policy initiatives or court appointments to justify their acceptance of this damage, while deemphasizing the impact of this president on basic norms and ethics. That strikes me as both h...

    Let me start by saying that I hate James Comey for reopening the Clinton email investigation a week before the election, no matter what his explanation is. I believe that played a role in the victory of Trump and the related destruction of America. That being said, I found this book to...

    First and foremost: this review will not have political opinions. I actually don?t comment on politics or religion (even when asked to do so) because I find both subjects tend to just start arguments, and as a non-confrontational person, it is not my forte. Plus I don?t get inv...

    SOME NOTABLE THINGS FOUND WHILE I CONTINUE TO READ THIS BOOK: RESPONDING TO THE IG REPORT JUNE 2018: "Comey said he welcomed the report, regardless of the pounding he took in it. ?I respect the DOJ IG office, which is why I urged them to do this review,? he said on Twitter. ?T...

    First off, five stars for this excellently written book. It was one of those memoirs that I started reading and did not stop until the very last word. Dishonest leaders have the same ability to shape a culture, by showing their people dishonesty, corruption, and deception. A commitmen...

    I'll start with a spoiler alert. Despite the overblown commentary from newscasters and the president's outrage, the fact is that James Comey's book has only 277 pages of which the first 210 (76%) do not deal with Donald Trump. Rather, they are a sanctimonious autobiography of sorts, cl...

    Here's a sentence I never thought I'd say: I kinda like James Comey now. "A Higher Loyalty" has some good stories about the former FBI director's interactions with Donald Trump, but the bulk of the book is Comey's experiences with managers he's admired and what it takes to be a good...

    Everybody remembers Abraham Lincoln?s famous axiom: The enemy of my enemy is my friend. It was one of the best things the 16th president of these United States ever said (along with: give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach him to fish and you feed him for life; or you mis...

    Five wonderful stars. I knew after watching Comey's congressional testimony that if he ever wrote a book, I would be interested in reading it. However, I was unprepared for what turned out to be an inspirational page turner. I was lucky enough to obtain the book and cd book from th...

    As anticipated, this is a difficult book to review. In fact, I was in two minds about even reading it, though I am not unhappy that I did. On the one hand, I do feel I know Comey better and that he is, in many ways, a good, stand-up sort of guy (which he reiterates in every conceivable...

    All bullies are largely the same. They threaten the weak to feed some insecurity that rages inside them. I know. I?ve seen it up close. James Comey is a lawyer, and in A Higher Loyalty he has presented a case to the jury of American public opinion. He lays out the steps of his inte...

    First off, five stars for this excellently written book. It was one of those memoirs that I started reading and did not stop until the very last word. Dishonest leaders have the same ability to shape a culture, by showing their people dishonesty, corruption, and deception. A commitmen...

    I'll start with a spoiler alert. Despite the overblown commentary from newscasters and the president's outrage, the fact is that James Comey's book has only 277 pages of which the first 210 (76%) do not deal with Donald Trump. Rather, they are a sanctimonious autobiography of sorts, cl...

    Here's a sentence I never thought I'd say: I kinda like James Comey now. "A Higher Loyalty" has some good stories about the former FBI director's interactions with Donald Trump, but the bulk of the book is Comey's experiences with managers he's admired and what it takes to be a good...

    I'll review later. I can't help liking Comey, but I also liked (the person) Neville Chamberlain. Both men allowed virtue to become a vice, however, and ended up as slightly absurd Greek characters in the tragedies of their day. ...

    "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership" is a very readable memoir of events that molded James Coney's views on leadership, public service, and ethics. A confrontation with an armed robber as a teenager sparked his interest in justice. Studying the works of the philosopher and t...

    I knew little about James Comey, the ex-FBI director, before he was brought to my attention and I'm sure many of yours, after being fired by Trump. Not so much fired as ambushed, since Trump didn't even have the decency to let him know he had been fired . Comey saw it on the TV while g...

    Superb. One may not agree with all of Comey?s decisions, but this book shows the rigor of his thinking and it?s hard to assail. The astonishing thing is that much of his life, in addition to the law, has involved the study of what constitutes optimal leadership. He?s thought long...

    First and foremost: this review will not have political opinions. I actually don?t comment on politics or religion (even when asked to do so) because I find both subjects tend to just start arguments, and as a non-confrontational person, it is not my forte. Plus I don?t get inv...

    I'll start with a spoiler alert. Despite the overblown commentary from newscasters and the president's outrage, the fact is that James Comey's book has only 277 pages of which the first 210 (76%) do not deal with Donald Trump. Rather, they are a sanctimonious autobiography of sorts, cl...

    Here's a sentence I never thought I'd say: I kinda like James Comey now. "A Higher Loyalty" has some good stories about the former FBI director's interactions with Donald Trump, but the bulk of the book is Comey's experiences with managers he's admired and what it takes to be a good...

    I see many so-called conservative commentators, including some faith leaders, focusing on favorable policy initiatives or court appointments to justify their acceptance of this damage, while deemphasizing the impact of this president on basic norms and ethics. That strikes me as both h...

    Oh.... this is going to make a certain *president further soil himself. Heh heh. More popcorn please! *fake, illegitimate, criminal president ...

    As anticipated, this is a difficult book to review. In fact, I was in two minds about even reading it, though I am not unhappy that I did. On the one hand, I do feel I know Comey better and that he is, in many ways, a good, stand-up sort of guy (which he reiterates in every conceivable...

    All bullies are largely the same. They threaten the weak to feed some insecurity that rages inside them. I know. I?ve seen it up close. James Comey is a lawyer, and in A Higher Loyalty he has presented a case to the jury of American public opinion. He lays out the steps of his inte...

    Goodreads is crap. How can folks review or rate a book that hasn't even been released yet? Since we are rating a book we haven't read yet, I'll give it 5 stars just because it may cause trump to have a stroke. ...

    There are two things every reader should know about James Comey and his book. First, whatever your politics, whatever you may think of his decisions, Comey is a fine writer who has written an excellent book about leaders and leadership, a superb story teller with a knack for bringing...

    Inspiring. Can I just say that with all the many expectations I brought to the reading of this book, being inspired was not one of them. Yet, here I am. Inspired. I vehemently disliked James Comey over the Hillary Clinton email debacle. Now I realize that I was unfair. I didn?t kn...

    I have written to the publisher to ask whether they would like to send me a review copy of this book. If they do, I'll read it, but I'm not keen on giving money to the guy who probably made Trump president by reigniting the Hillary email server issue just before the 2016 election. T...

    And here I thought I couldn't hate Donald Trump more. ...

    I knew little about James Comey, the ex-FBI director, before he was brought to my attention and I'm sure many of yours, after being fired by Trump. Not so much fired as ambushed, since Trump didn't even have the decency to let him know he had been fired . Comey saw it on the TV while g...

    Superb. One may not agree with all of Comey?s decisions, but this book shows the rigor of his thinking and it?s hard to assail. The astonishing thing is that much of his life, in addition to the law, has involved the study of what constitutes optimal leadership. He?s thought long...

    First and foremost: this review will not have political opinions. I actually don?t comment on politics or religion (even when asked to do so) because I find both subjects tend to just start arguments, and as a non-confrontational person, it is not my forte. Plus I don?t get inv...

    SOME NOTABLE THINGS FOUND WHILE I CONTINUE TO READ THIS BOOK: RESPONDING TO THE IG REPORT JUNE 2018: "Comey said he welcomed the report, regardless of the pounding he took in it. ?I respect the DOJ IG office, which is why I urged them to do this review,? he said on Twitter. ?T...

    First off, five stars for this excellently written book. It was one of those memoirs that I started reading and did not stop until the very last word. Dishonest leaders have the same ability to shape a culture, by showing their people dishonesty, corruption, and deception. A commitmen...

    I'll start with a spoiler alert. Despite the overblown commentary from newscasters and the president's outrage, the fact is that James Comey's book has only 277 pages of which the first 210 (76%) do not deal with Donald Trump. Rather, they are a sanctimonious autobiography of sorts, cl...

    Here's a sentence I never thought I'd say: I kinda like James Comey now. "A Higher Loyalty" has some good stories about the former FBI director's interactions with Donald Trump, but the bulk of the book is Comey's experiences with managers he's admired and what it takes to be a good...
