JAMES COMEY REVEALS


A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership by James Comey at 131 York Street Sydney
ORDER HERE

You've heard about it. Here it is. 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.

 

STELLA PRIZE WINNER


Tracker BY Alexis Wright at 131 York Street Sydney
ORDER HERE

ABBEY’S BOOKSELLER PICK —— A biography can be written in a standard form: subject born, raised, educated, worked and died. And that will be fine for most people. But not Tracker Tilmouth. He was a polarising, intelligent, charismatic ideas man, whose sense of humour was legendary and devastating.

 

THE READING TRAIL


The Reading Trail at 131 York Street Sydney
BUY BOTH FOR $60

This month we hit the reading trail with Abbey’s Bookseller, Christian:
"I read these back-to-back and while individually both books were very good, what really struck me was how neatly they converged on the central theme of globalisation. Rarely have I encountered such a complementary pairing and I would recommend others interested in the area give them a go together as well. In clear, engaging styles that are a pleasure to read, this is a great example of the whole being greater than the parts."
