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.

“By far the most consequential book yet in the literature of the Trump presidency.” —NPR
“A Higher Loyalty is the first big memoir by a key player in the alarming melodrama that is the Trump administration....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....Provides sharp sketches of key players in three presidential administrations....Comey is what Saul Bellow called a ‘first-class noticer.’” —The New York Times
