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.

Honesty and Integrity


Mr Comey is truly an excellent man. He is a man of honesty, integrity, and of class. Normally, people who write books which contain themselves, they portray them self as arrogant and as if they are the best, although Mr Comey does not do that. Mr Comey is an excellent person and it is truly a shame he got fired from the FBI. In this book you learn about Mr Comey in a way you would not hear of him. You learn about the tough decision he had to make on Hillary's email scandal, and the tough decisions he was forced with.. He always tried to do what was right. As someone who probably would have voted for Hillary against Trump, Mr Comey has gained great respect from me. You also learn of the inexperience that is in the Trump White House, and what Trump said to Mr Comey. I have never read a book where the author is so honest about himself. Mr Comey you are an excellent man. This book provides you great information regarding US Politics, the Justice System in the US, and Mr Comey's dealings with the past three Presidents, (that being Trump, Obama and W. Bush). Truly, a wonderful book!



A must read


This is a great insight into US Justice system and the President system.

Looking for someone honourable?


As someone who doesn't reside in the US I was seeking reassurance that truth, honesty, and ethical behaviour still exists in America. James Comey describes how he developed his moral philosophy, going on to describe his reasoning behind decisions he made as the diector of the FBI. He came across as an honest, honourable, and admirable man, who was treated appallingly by the current administration in the White House. A very worthy read.

We already suspected much of the story but this tells the reader so much more about the author and his ethics.
