A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership Reviews
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 his object lessons to life. Second, however much MSNBC you watch, however much of The Times and The Post you have read in the last year, you will still find stories here—good stories—that you have not heard before.
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 the library on Saturday because I had got on the hold list for this some time ago. I wasn't sure the timing for this would be right, so I thought I would do a quick flick-through and in all likelihood table it for a more ...more
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.
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 interactions with Swamp Thing, from introduction to long-distance buh-bye. This is what happened, here, here, and there, on this, this, and that dates. This is what was said. This is what I understood those words to mean ...more
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 know the truth. I didn’t know all the facts. I try so hard to always look at things from other viewpoints. I failed. I thought myself righteous in my outrage. Truly, James Comey chose the only honorable path. It was a terr ...more
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 miss 100% of the shots that you don’t take).
And I feel James Comey, with his book A Higher Loyalty is counting on everyone to not only remember The Great Emancipator’s words about enemies, but to take them to heart. Now ...more
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.
Trump first said he'd fired Comey because of his actions here. From a certain point of view this was quite reasonable, except that it is of course strange to fire someone for fixing an election in your favour. But then ...more
ANNNNNND the unfriending begins LOL. Welcome to the books-that-made-me-lose-friend-shelf, A HIGHER LOYALTY. You get to join all my top "liberal snowflake" reads.
Currently waitlisted at motherfucking #11 at the library. D:
Hopefully my library will add another copy soon...
People are hyping the shit out of this right now but I'm not falling for that again after the FIRE AND FURY fiasco (what a raging disappointment that was).
I do intend to get my hands on a copy of this book, though, and, as always ...more
