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 powe, and a remarkable lesson in what makes an effective leader.

  • Good book, fairly bi-partisan if you're into that.

Say what you want about Mr. Comey, but I would find it incredibly difficult to question his integrity after reading this entire book. He is a man of honor and lawfulness who devoted nearly all of his professional life to serving his country...and without a doubt he can leave that service with his head held high. But my favorite parts of the book were the more personal ones - the ones who tell his story about being a vulnerable, bullied kid...a man who loves his wife and family unconditionally...and a man who has experienced great pain and loss, yet continued to live fully and with absolute honor.

Ugh. I REALLY wanted to be into this book...but dang, it’s exhausting to listen someone make a case over and over for how great and successful they are...all while trying to drop a few life-advice nuggets for the reader (all of which you could get from a 20 min scan of “motivational quotes” on Pinterest). Rachel REALLY wants you to know how fantastic and accomplished she is....wait, did you actually grasp how much she has achieved? Don’t worry...she’ll tell you a hundred different ways in this book. Plus, there is SO much God/Faith/“I’m a good Christian” mumbo jumbo that it just comes off dis-genuine, preachy and un-relatable. This former preacher’s daughter really wants to sell you herself...and some heavy handed Christian values, y’all!
