If you keep up with the news you’ve probably heard about the book by James Comey, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, set for release tomorrow, April 17th.
In his forthcoming book, 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.
We live in the age of “fake news” accusations, lies, secrets, and email scandals. I don’t pretend to be an expert or to be able to tell what is truth and what is not. I prefer to let each and every one of you determine that for yourself.
Although I prefer light reading (fiction) in my down time, this is a book I am anxious to read. I’m not a fan of authorized biographies, but will put everything else aside for a “told in his own words” account of what really happened. One person said, “Just because they’re his words, how do we know they’re the truth?”
We don’t. That’s why we read it and decide for ourselves. James Comey has been a part of the most sensational periods in American politics. Oh, the stories he can tell. I know I have a hundred questions about the last few years and I’m hoping I get a few of the answers in his book.
