A Higher Loyalty Book Review

The man of the political hour these days is James Comey. It seems like it is nearly impossible to go anywhere without hearing his name.

His memoir, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership was published very recently to acclaim, buzz and a bit of controversy.

In the memoir, Mr. Comey tells the story of his life from his own perspective. He was born in the early 1960’s in a suburban town just outside of New York City and grew up in New Jersey. Working for the government at the state, local and national level for several decades, he uses his experience to draw a picture of what ethical and m0ral leadership looks like. As expected, he also writes about his brief and turbulent term as FBI director during the 2016 Presidential Election and under the leadership of Donald Trump.

If some readers are expecting a tabloid-esque tell all similar to Fire and Fury or Devil’s Bargain, they will be sorely disappointed. What they will find is the story of a man who shoots straight from the hip, believes in American democracy, does not cater to party lines and makes decisions based on what is best for the country.

I recommend it.

Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House Book Review

It’s no secret that the Trump Presidency has been one of the divisive and controversial in modern American history.

Michael Wolff‘s new expose, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, takes the average voter behind the scenes into the chaos of the administration.

With unprecedented access, Mr. Wolff makes some startling and scary revelations. Some of the revelations include how volatile Trump is, what his staff thinks of him and the real reason why James Comey was fired.

I was completely floored by this book. I was floored because if the allegations of what is happening behind closed doors is true, then this country is in the crapper. We elected a man who not only has no experience in politics, but is unwilling/unable to learn from those around him who have the experience and has the temperament/maturity of a ten-year old.

I absolutely recommend it.
