Inhaltsangabe

The number-one New York Times best seller, now with a new preface! 

In his audiobook, A Higher Loyalty, 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 and overseeing the Hillary Clinton email 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.

Kritikerstimmen

"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.... This greatly anticipated, revelatory memoir needs to be heard." (AudioFile)

"It was essential that Comey himself narrate this book, not only because his absence would have distracted listeners familiar with his voice but also because only the author could credibly convey the range of raw emotions emanating from the experiences he shares from this most eventful of lives." (Booklist, starred review)

An important book

No matter on what side of the political spectrum you are, this is an important book of this era. However, its main message will be just as true and meaningful in 50 years as it is now.

In a time when hearing the name Trump leads inevitably to a feeling akin to boredom - because it's going to be the same thing over and over again - this book does deal with Trump, but Trump isn't the subject.

The subject is "ethical leadership". And James Comey believably tells his life's story and how the aspiration of becoming an ethical leader influenced his career.

When, in the second half of the book, Comy's career inevitably runs head on into the candidate, president elect and later president Donald Trump, his life's story and his commitment to ethical leadership serves as an impressive contrast to Donald Trump's leadership style and character.

The positive tone and outlook, with which he concludes the book, leaves the reader worried but hopeful.

Really good audiobook!

This was a very inspiring book on leadership and standing up to your values!

It also shows that even the people at the very top, who seemingly never have any trouble making decisions, go through all that inner turmoil and doubt when making tough decisions.

Also very interesting insights into how key American institutions work and interesting personal evaluations of well known people (including three presidents ;-)

Comey had (and still has, I hope) a really interesting life and knows how to tell a story well. I found it fascinating to experience political events and famous investigations through the eyes of someone who participated in them and made a credible effort to keep a neutral view on things, guided only by the law.

I really loved the book and found it very inspiring!
In many ways it reminded me of Steven R. Coveys "7 Habits of highly effective people".

A recommended read for everyone who wants to - or has to - be a leader.
I will definitely listen to it again.

Beeindruckend & kongruent

Ich bin noch nicht bei der Hälfte des Buches, kann aber schon jetzt sagen, dass der Mann, die Story, das Buch beeindruckend ist und der Inhalt wirklich gut zu Comey passt, sehr stimmig. Muss mich vom Hören immer wieder mal losreißen. Sehr spannend.

Ein wahres Muss

Ich bin auf dieses Buch gestoßen, weil ich zuvor „Sea Stories“ von William McRaven gehört habe. Ich dachte eigentlich Sea Stories, wäre sehr gut, was es zweifellos auch ist. Aber dieses Buch hat alle meine Erwartungen übertroffen. Danke an den Autor für diesen ehrlichen Einblick und den Mut zu seinen Werten zu stehen.

A must!

If you care about justice, you will not be able to stop listening. A very interesting account of how the Mob works and how Trumps administration works.
