Review Quotes

“Only former FBI director James Comey himself could convincingly narrate this audiobook. Fortunately, Comey’s conversational tone instantly connects with the listener, and hearing him deliver the book’s highly charged contents in his own voice brings authenticity and immediacy to the presentation. Comey has a pleasant speaking voice, and he demonstrates a professional narrator’s command of pacing and intensity. Anecdotes from his childhood and private life and in-depth details on his tenure at the FBI, including what led up to his firing, offer a more complete picture of Comey as an honest, principled man who is open about his mistakes and his role in the current political situation. This greatly anticipated, revelatory memoir needs to be heard.”

“Summer’s political must-read.”

Newsweek

“Comey…has worked in three administrations, and his book underscores just how outside presidential norms Trump’s behavior has been…Comey’s book fleshes out the testimony he gave before the Senate Intelligence Committee in June 2017 with considerable emotional detail, and it showcases its author’s gift for narrative…[with] some near-cinematic accounts.”

New York Times Book Review

"[A] piercing and candid memoir. Comey revisits conflicts between duty and politics under three presidents…Comey mines his recollections for leadership lessons…His damning portrait of Trump, on the other hand, is a study in unethical, off-putting anti-leadership…This is a troubling and important account of the clash between power and justice.”

Publishers Weekly

“On November 11, President Donald Trump called former FBI director James Comey a political hack ‘proven now to be a liar.’ Comey responded by quoting from an 1855 sermon by the Reverend Charles Haddon Spurgeon: ‘If you want truth to go round the world you must hire an express train to pull it; but if you want a lie to go round the world, it will fly.’ Perhaps this memoir’s title is another possible response.”
