In his 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 US attorney for the Southern District of New York, and the US 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.

Review Quotes

“The first big memoir by a key player in the alarming melodrama that is the Trump administration. 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

“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.”
