Staff Reviews


This is a really interesting audiobook narrated by Comey. I came away from it respecting him as a leader and public servant, and with an understanding of his controversial decisions during the run up to the election.

Beyond the Clinton email and Trump interactions, the book also has interesting history of fighting the mafia, the Martha Steward case, and his role pushing back against Dick Cheney's torture policies.

— Mike Kelleher

Description


The former FBI director shares his experiences over the past two decades working in the American government and explores ethical leadership and how it drives sound decision-making.
