An honest man trying to speak truth to power. A man with 21 years of Fidelity, Honor, and Integrity, who was smeared by a person who has no integrity, honor or fidelity, literally. Solid read, insightful and the truth always rises to the top. Pay attention, listen, learn and try not to be obtuse. A good man telling an honest account of history.

I bought this out of civic duty toward McCabe's retirement - ;) - thinking it would be a whining, boring diatribe against Mr. Trump (that I'd read ten pages of and never pick up again.) Wrong. McCabe's easy, self-effacing narrative is a cool combination of creative mind + super geek: he loved wearing the same polo shirts as everyone during training. He loved writing 302s. He appreciated order, discipline and dedication of the FBI. And yet, how freaked out he was when first assigned to the FBI nyc - with all the tension and personality one might expect from nyc - before beginning an investigation into the Russian "protection" racket in Brooklyn, via one phone call (b/c he was the only one in the office that early in the morning.) He's an excellent, excellent writer and storyteller. The Trump timeline is almost secondary (although critical) to the fact that the FBI and law enforcement are crucial to the structure of democracy. I hope he writes spy novels in the future... I'm pretty sure none of us will be able to put them down.

Of all the books on the Trump presidency, both pro and con, Mr. McCabe's stands apart as one of the most important in its careful explanation of the danger our nation currently faces. Starting by sharing his fascinating life in the FBI and augmenting that with insights into every day life with the Bureau, McCabe paints a picture of how that organization works to protect Americans from criminality, even from crimes allegedly committed by the President of the United States.

I thought this book was very informative and should be a must-read for all Americans. It details how the FBI uses it's investigative power to protect us from terrorism as well as from organized criminals. Mr. McCabe also warns us about the threat from an unprincipled president that cares nothing about the rule of law and fair play and is only interested in his own egomania.

Every American Should Read This Book! Andrew McCabe states his case for the FBI as an essential protector of Americans, American values and American democracy. I found out the truth about the Russian Investigation. I met Robert Mueller and got to know the real James Comey. Andrew McCabe cuts through Donald Trump's lies and reveals the very real threat that the present Administration is to Americans and to our way of life. A facinating and informative book. Thank you Andrew McCabe for standing up and speaking out!
