I had a lot of interest in how they were describing things, actions and happenings back when the text was written.
But it is all done in a modern voice and modern idioms, which was a little disappointing.

The performances and the story was rich and captivating. On to volume 2

Great book

Great book on integrity and what it means to be an ethical leader.
Definitely something I would strive for in the future and even come back to read it again to save the insight in these matters.

Disagreed with the internet spying policy, but other than that, a great example of having good judgement and insight.

Its also interesting how someone with such high integrity and people in general are susceptible to personality conflicts, as such that it was hard for Comey to be clear to a strong/fragile,easily offended, rash, self affirming person in power, without antagonising the person who he is trying to inform.
And in that, the end result was was rather inevitable.

Stumbled upon this gem while in Greece for the first time and what an absolute pleasure it was.
I was listening to this while walking the streets and enjoying the views, while Stephen Fry’s intelligent and insightful ways of telling these stories brought the whole world of Ancient Greece and and magical myths to life.

Great narration, truly enjoyable and yet somehow the daunting task of getting across such a vast and convoluted information is done with such ease, that it simply feels like light reading.

Thanks
