James Coney has a higher loyalty- to himself and making money. He leaked classified information when he was the FBI Director, he lied to Congress about the leaking, he exonerated Hillary Clinton two months before he interviewed her, he lied to the President about the infamous dossier not informing him that the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign paid for it. The swamp indeed.

A thoughtful and reasonable reader will gain a significant insight to the man and his thoughts during incredibly difficult situations, and learn why he made the decisions he did when he did. He is a leader by any definition of the word, and one who actively seeks and listens to the views of others in order to gain perspectives other than his own. No matter how hard any of us try to live our lives without bias, it is part of what makes us who we are. Comey does a masterful job of explaining the role of Director of the FBI and how the FBI protects us and the Constitution of the United States.

This is not, as many people seem to think, a book about trump. It is about what it takes to be a value-driven honest and ethical leader others are willing to follow and to emulate whether that leader manages a grocery store or is president of a country. While it's true, as Comey acknowledges, the FBI will do just fine without him, we must all be vigilant to ensure we have men and women like him in leadership positions, people who will have our backs. Such people will not throw us under the bus.

Thank you, James Comey, "for standing watch. Thank you for doing so much good for this country." I know that whatever awaits you that you will continue to "do good as long as ever you can."

A much needed book during these tumultuous times. I hope that many, if not all, Americans will read it. Thank you to Mr James Comey and to a (still) Free Press--- he is a brave and patient hero.
