    I bought this book, mostly, because I felt sorry for McCabe being fired 26 hours before he was eligible to receive his full retirement benefits in a malicious, and spiteful attack by Donald Trump, and wanted to pitch in the cover price of the book to help him out. I make no secret of t...

    Remember this old joke? ?How boring is Al Gore? Al Gore is so boring that his Secret Service code name is ?Al Gore?.? Well, Andrew McCabe is so boring that his code name requires a middle initial. Andrew McCabe?s code name must be ?Andrew G. McCabe.? Perhaps I?m no...

    Well Written, Credible and Scary as Hell I wanted to read this book. I don't know much about the inner workings of the FBI and I knew this would explain a lot. It tells McCabe's own personal story and tells us just how the FBI works. The tall tales that trump tells about Mueller, C...

    Important background for what?s next Good, short overview regarding some recent history of interest. More tales of decent people, trying to do the right thing. Chewed over by, and spit from, the maw of today?s political reality show. ...

    This is a memoir of McCabe?s time in the FBI. He provided a great deal of information about the inner workings of the FBI. I found that part of the book most enlighting. The information he provided about Trump and his administration was similar to materials provided by many other aut...

    McCabe concerned about 'unfair treatment' after book release delayed by FBI Former assistant director of the FBI Frank Figliuzzi, former US attorney Chuck Rosenberg, former federal prosecutor Paul Butler, The Daily Beast?s Sam Stein, and NBC?s Carol Lee on former Acting FBI dire...

    In late 2015, I read an article about how a securities analyst reported that Trump's Taj Mahal casino was headed for financial trouble, and how Trump leaned on his contacts to get that analyst fired. Not long after, the Taj went bankrupt, harming investors, contractors, and workers. Th...

    I said I was going to stop reading these Trump-era memoirs, but I lied. I'm glad because this one is a good one. Mostly because it's not really about Trump--well it is about Trump, but that's not the most interesting part. It was fascinating to get some more perspective into the mind o...

    The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump . Andrew G. McCabe, veteran more than 20 years in the FBI, has published his story of some of his most challenging times as a Special Agent, Deputy Director, and Acting Director of America?s domestic intelligenc...

    Former Acting Director and Deputy Director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe has written book that has three parts: One that focuses on his career, another how the FBI operates in a post-911 world and why he thinks our democratic system is under threat both from within and without. After readi...

    A very good explanation of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and how it works. This was a limited insight into the players and events of the investigation into the Trump campaign. He also describes the Clinton Benghazi and email investigations and the Boston Marathon horror. It is we...

    The book read like a page turner. It was great to learn all the background processes that go into FBI investigations. TV shows don't really tell all the truth. McCabe was also an excellent writer. Often government officials need help with that. Apparently he didn't. I was particularly...

    This was an interesting listen. Even aside from the Trump & Russia related revelations, McCabe's FBI career was fascinating. Recommended. ...

    4.5 stars. A well written book about Andrew McCabe?s rise, fall and eventual firing from the FBI 28 hours before he was set to retire (literally on Trumped up charges.) He goes into the history of the FBI, its mission and how the agents solve crimes. The book is especially interest...

    A three star book with a five bell warning. A warning that the sitting president ?s behavior is effectively tearing our nation apart by slandering that which threatens his position of power - be it the FBI, Congress, the Judiciary, or the media. Former acting director of the FBI McCa...

    So McCabe comes out on national TV and admits that he was part of an organized coup to overthrow the President of the United States. How is it that people can continue to swallow this Deep State propaganda? The Threat is real and it is the author of this book and his fellow three-lette...

    Combination career retrospective, manifesto about the FBI's value, and rebuttal to Donald Trump's smears. McCabe comes off as levelheaded and principled; this is as much FBI inner-workings as it is the personal and professional trials brought on by the current administration. One of th...

    Ughhhhhhh, what a mess (the gov't, not the book). ...

    I didn't plan for McCabe's book to be next in my exploration of how democracy is declining throughout the world, but it was on the "brand new release" shelf at my public library, so I grabbed it. I thought my next read would be one of the recommendations on the "Gaslit Nation" podcast....

    This was a good follow up to Comey's A Higher Loyalty. I may not agree with all of McCabe's politics put forth in this book, but I think he has an important perspective on the Trump admin and is definitely worth the read. ...

    This book gave me an understanding of how the FBI functions. It has come a long way since the exit of J. Edgar Hoover when ?books? were kept on citizens for political purposes. The agency has a strict code of ethics and protocols for all of its work. McCabe is thorough and writes w...

    He tells the truth I would give this a 5 for the truth. Explaining the work of the. FBI showed the world what goes into this complicated work. I wish with him for the return of normality. I scratch my head that things have swung so far but I respect the work being done and have to b...

    I learned a lot. Do I believe Mr. MacCabe? I do. Can I verify- no. The surprising element of the book is about the FBI. Less than 20% focuses on man in the White House. Highly recommend this tightly written narrative. ...

    This is the much-anticipated memoir from Andrew McCabe, former acting head of the FBI who got caught in the political crosshairs of Donald Trump, due to his involvement in the Russian-interference campaign into our 2016 presidential election. McCabe starts out with his time joining ...

    Andrew McCabe, at the time he Acting Director of the FBI, was fired on March 16, 2018, 26 hours before his scheduled retirement. The claimed reason was "lack of candor" in the Clinton email investigation. Even discounting McCabe's own account, it would appear that McCabe's "lack of can...

    A very direct clear story of Andrew McCabe?s account of his history in the FBI, what he did, and how the job was perverted by Trump and his team. McCabe doesn?t self pity but makes it clear what he experienced was wrong and what he and the FBI have done right away in past years. He...

    I bought this book, mostly, because I felt sorry for McCabe being fired 26 hours before he was eligible to receive his full retirement benefits in a malicious, and spiteful attack by Donald Trump, and wanted to pitch in the cover price of the book to help him out. I make no secret of t...

    Remember this old joke? ?How boring is Al Gore? Al Gore is so boring that his Secret Service code name is ?Al Gore?.? Well, Andrew McCabe is so boring that his code name requires a middle initial. Andrew McCabe?s code name must be ?Andrew G. McCabe.? Perhaps I?m no...

    Well Written, Credible and Scary as Hell I wanted to read this book. I don't know much about the inner workings of the FBI and I knew this would explain a lot. It tells McCabe's own personal story and tells us just how the FBI works. The tall tales that trump tells about Mueller, C...

    Important background for what?s next Good, short overview regarding some recent history of interest. More tales of decent people, trying to do the right thing. Chewed over by, and spit from, the maw of today?s political reality show. ...

    This is a memoir of McCabe?s time in the FBI. He provided a great deal of information about the inner workings of the FBI. I found that part of the book most enlighting. The information he provided about Trump and his administration was similar to materials provided by many other aut...

    In late 2015, I read an article about how a securities analyst reported that Trump's Taj Mahal casino was headed for financial trouble, and how Trump leaned on his contacts to get that analyst fired. Not long after, the Taj went bankrupt, harming investors, contractors, and workers. Th...

    I said I was going to stop reading these Trump-era memoirs, but I lied. I'm glad because this one is a good one. Mostly because it's not really about Trump--well it is about Trump, but that's not the most interesting part. It was fascinating to get some more perspective into the mind o...

    The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump . Andrew G. McCabe, veteran more than 20 years in the FBI, has published his story of some of his most challenging times as a Special Agent, Deputy Director, and Acting Director of America?s domestic intelligenc...

    Former Acting Director and Deputy Director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe has written book that has three parts: One that focuses on his career, another how the FBI operates in a post-911 world and why he thinks our democratic system is under threat both from within and without. After readi...

    A very good explanation of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and how it works. This was a limited insight into the players and events of the investigation into the Trump campaign. He also describes the Clinton Benghazi and email investigations and the Boston Marathon horror. It is we...

    The book read like a page turner. It was great to learn all the background processes that go into FBI investigations. TV shows don't really tell all the truth. McCabe was also an excellent writer. Often government officials need help with that. Apparently he didn't. I was particularly...

    This was an interesting listen. Even aside from the Trump & Russia related revelations, McCabe's FBI career was fascinating. Recommended. ...

    4.5 stars. A well written book about Andrew McCabe?s rise, fall and eventual firing from the FBI 28 hours before he was set to retire (literally on Trumped up charges.) He goes into the history of the FBI, its mission and how the agents solve crimes. The book is especially interest...

    A three star book with a five bell warning. A warning that the sitting president ?s behavior is effectively tearing our nation apart by slandering that which threatens his position of power - be it the FBI, Congress, the Judiciary, or the media. Former acting director of the FBI McCa...

    Combination career retrospective, manifesto about the FBI's value, and rebuttal to Donald Trump's smears. McCabe comes off as levelheaded and principled; this is as much FBI inner-workings as it is the personal and professional trials brought on by the current administration. One of th...

    Ughhhhhhh, what a mess (the gov't, not the book). ...

    I didn't plan for McCabe's book to be next in my exploration of how democracy is declining throughout the world, but it was on the "brand new release" shelf at my public library, so I grabbed it. I thought my next read would be one of the recommendations on the "Gaslit Nation" podcast....

    After I checked out this book at the library, I kept hearing people on TV saying things like this: "Andrew McCabe's new book, which doesn't come out until Tuesday..." And so, I thought, wait - I have this book in my hands. It's here. So - did I get a copy of the book BEFORE the r...

    I bought this book, mostly, because I felt sorry for McCabe being fired 26 hours before he was eligible to receive his full retirement benefits in a malicious, and spiteful attack by Donald Trump, and wanted to pitch in the cover price of the book to help him out. I make no secret of t...

    Remember this old joke? ?How boring is Al Gore? Al Gore is so boring that his Secret Service code name is ?Al Gore?.? Well, Andrew McCabe is so boring that his code name requires a middle initial. Andrew McCabe?s code name must be ?Andrew G. McCabe.? Perhaps I?m no...

    Important background for what?s next Good, short overview regarding some recent history of interest. More tales of decent people, trying to do the right thing. Chewed over by, and spit from, the maw of today?s political reality show. ...

    This is a memoir of McCabe?s time in the FBI. He provided a great deal of information about the inner workings of the FBI. I found that part of the book most enlighting. The information he provided about Trump and his administration was similar to materials provided by many other aut...

    In late 2015, I read an article about how a securities analyst reported that Trump's Taj Mahal casino was headed for financial trouble, and how Trump leaned on his contacts to get that analyst fired. Not long after, the Taj went bankrupt, harming investors, contractors, and workers. Th...

    I said I was going to stop reading these Trump-era memoirs, but I lied. I'm glad because this one is a good one. Mostly because it's not really about Trump--well it is about Trump, but that's not the most interesting part. It was fascinating to get some more perspective into the mind o...

    The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump . Andrew G. McCabe, veteran more than 20 years in the FBI, has published his story of some of his most challenging times as a Special Agent, Deputy Director, and Acting Director of America?s domestic intelligenc...

    Former Acting Director and Deputy Director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe has written book that has three parts: One that focuses on his career, another how the FBI operates in a post-911 world and why he thinks our democratic system is under threat both from within and without. After readi...

    A very good explanation of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and how it works. This was a limited insight into the players and events of the investigation into the Trump campaign. He also describes the Clinton Benghazi and email investigations and the Boston Marathon horror. It is we...

    The book read like a page turner. It was great to learn all the background processes that go into FBI investigations. TV shows don't really tell all the truth. McCabe was also an excellent writer. Often government officials need help with that. Apparently he didn't. I was particularly...

    This was an interesting listen. Even aside from the Trump & Russia related revelations, McCabe's FBI career was fascinating. Recommended. ...

    4.5 stars. A well written book about Andrew McCabe?s rise, fall and eventual firing from the FBI 28 hours before he was set to retire (literally on Trumped up charges.) He goes into the history of the FBI, its mission and how the agents solve crimes. The book is especially interest...

    A three star book with a five bell warning. A warning that the sitting president ?s behavior is effectively tearing our nation apart by slandering that which threatens his position of power - be it the FBI, Congress, the Judiciary, or the media. Former acting director of the FBI McCa...

    Combination career retrospective, manifesto about the FBI's value, and rebuttal to Donald Trump's smears. McCabe comes off as levelheaded and principled; this is as much FBI inner-workings as it is the personal and professional trials brought on by the current administration. One of th...

    Ughhhhhhh, what a mess (the gov't, not the book). ...

    I didn't plan for McCabe's book to be next in my exploration of how democracy is declining throughout the world, but it was on the "brand new release" shelf at my public library, so I grabbed it. I thought my next read would be one of the recommendations on the "Gaslit Nation" podcast....

    After I checked out this book at the library, I kept hearing people on TV saying things like this: "Andrew McCabe's new book, which doesn't come out until Tuesday..." And so, I thought, wait - I have this book in my hands. It's here. So - did I get a copy of the book BEFORE the r...

    This book is clear, concise, interesting, and important to all Americans. I highly recommend it! Andrew McCabe writes about his career with the FBI, how the FBI functions today (particularly with regard to anti-terrorism), and most importantly-his experiences since the election of Dona...

    Be afraid, be very afraid. But good for McCabe writing this. Kind of spoilerish, but something that happened when Rosenstein and McCabe met with the Gang of Eight in May 2017: (view spoiler)[ Now that the Gang of Eight was a crowd of two dozen in the room, I thought, the chance of ...

    Just finished. This is by far the best book I?ve read of this milieu! It rings of authenticity. Very heartening to hear the story of someone who didn?t get sullied by working beside the vicious, mean spirited filth of the Trump administration. Must read for Americans who care about...

    This was a good follow up to Comey's A Higher Loyalty. I may not agree with all of McCabe's politics put forth in this book, but I think he has an important perspective on the Trump admin and is definitely worth the read. ...

    This book gave me an understanding of how the FBI functions. It has come a long way since the exit of J. Edgar Hoover when ?books? were kept on citizens for political purposes. The agency has a strict code of ethics and protocols for all of its work. McCabe is thorough and writes w...

    He tells the truth I would give this a 5 for the truth. Explaining the work of the. FBI showed the world what goes into this complicated work. I wish with him for the return of normality. I scratch my head that things have swung so far but I respect the work being done and have to b...

    I learned a lot. Do I believe Mr. MacCabe? I do. Can I verify- no. The surprising element of the book is about the FBI. Less than 20% focuses on man in the White House. Highly recommend this tightly written narrative. ...

    I bought this book, mostly, because I felt sorry for McCabe being fired 26 hours before he was eligible to receive his full retirement benefits in a malicious, and spiteful attack by Donald Trump, and wanted to pitch in the cover price of the book to help him out. I make no secret of t...

    Remember this old joke? ?How boring is Al Gore? Al Gore is so boring that his Secret Service code name is ?Al Gore?.? Well, Andrew McCabe is so boring that his code name requires a middle initial. Andrew McCabe?s code name must be ?Andrew G. McCabe.? Perhaps I?m no...

    Well Written, Credible and Scary as Hell I wanted to read this book. I don't know much about the inner workings of the FBI and I knew this would explain a lot. It tells McCabe's own personal story and tells us just how the FBI works. The tall tales that trump tells about Mueller, C...

    Important background for what?s next Good, short overview regarding some recent history of interest. More tales of decent people, trying to do the right thing. Chewed over by, and spit from, the maw of today?s political reality show. ...

    This is a memoir of McCabe?s time in the FBI. He provided a great deal of information about the inner workings of the FBI. I found that part of the book most enlighting. The information he provided about Trump and his administration was similar to materials provided by many other aut...

    McCabe concerned about 'unfair treatment' after book release delayed by FBI Former assistant director of the FBI Frank Figliuzzi, former US attorney Chuck Rosenberg, former federal prosecutor Paul Butler, The Daily Beast?s Sam Stein, and NBC?s Carol Lee on former Acting FBI dire...

    In late 2015, I read an article about how a securities analyst reported that Trump's Taj Mahal casino was headed for financial trouble, and how Trump leaned on his contacts to get that analyst fired. Not long after, the Taj went bankrupt, harming investors, contractors, and workers. Th...

    I said I was going to stop reading these Trump-era memoirs, but I lied. I'm glad because this one is a good one. Mostly because it's not really about Trump--well it is about Trump, but that's not the most interesting part. It was fascinating to get some more perspective into the mind o...

    Former Acting Director and Deputy Director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe has written book that has three parts: One that focuses on his career, another how the FBI operates in a post-911 world and why he thinks our democratic system is under threat both from within and without. After readi...

    A very good explanation of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and how it works. This was a limited insight into the players and events of the investigation into the Trump campaign. He also describes the Clinton Benghazi and email investigations and the Boston Marathon horror. It is we...

    The book read like a page turner. It was great to learn all the background processes that go into FBI investigations. TV shows don't really tell all the truth. McCabe was also an excellent writer. Often government officials need help with that. Apparently he didn't. I was particularly...

    This was an interesting listen. Even aside from the Trump & Russia related revelations, McCabe's FBI career was fascinating. Recommended. ...

    4.5 stars. A well written book about Andrew McCabe?s rise, fall and eventual firing from the FBI 28 hours before he was set to retire (literally on Trumped up charges.) He goes into the history of the FBI, its mission and how the agents solve crimes. The book is especially interest...

    A three star book with a five bell warning. A warning that the sitting president ?s behavior is effectively tearing our nation apart by slandering that which threatens his position of power - be it the FBI, Congress, the Judiciary, or the media. Former acting director of the FBI McCa...

    So McCabe comes out on national TV and admits that he was part of an organized coup to overthrow the President of the United States. How is it that people can continue to swallow this Deep State propaganda? The Threat is real and it is the author of this book and his fellow three-lette...

    Combination career retrospective, manifesto about the FBI's value, and rebuttal to Donald Trump's smears. McCabe comes off as levelheaded and principled; this is as much FBI inner-workings as it is the personal and professional trials brought on by the current administration. One of th...

    Ughhhhhhh, what a mess (the gov't, not the book). ...

    I didn't plan for McCabe's book to be next in my exploration of how democracy is declining throughout the world, but it was on the "brand new release" shelf at my public library, so I grabbed it. I thought my next read would be one of the recommendations on the "Gaslit Nation" podcast....

    After I checked out this book at the library, I kept hearing people on TV saying things like this: "Andrew McCabe's new book, which doesn't come out until Tuesday..." And so, I thought, wait - I have this book in my hands. It's here. So - did I get a copy of the book BEFORE the r...

    This book is clear, concise, interesting, and important to all Americans. I highly recommend it! Andrew McCabe writes about his career with the FBI, how the FBI functions today (particularly with regard to anti-terrorism), and most importantly-his experiences since the election of Dona...

    Just finished. This is by far the best book I?ve read of this milieu! It rings of authenticity. Very heartening to hear the story of someone who didn?t get sullied by working beside the vicious, mean spirited filth of the Trump administration. Must read for Americans who care about...

    This was a good follow up to Comey's A Higher Loyalty. I may not agree with all of McCabe's politics put forth in this book, but I think he has an important perspective on the Trump admin and is definitely worth the read. ...
