Fired FBI director James Comey's upcoming tell-all, titled A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, has already hit #1 at Amazon, and the book hasn't even come out yet.

The book will be released on April 17 and has already been described by CNN as "nothing less then the most devastating, contemporaneous takedown of a sitting president in modern history."

Two months ago, Michael Wolff's look at the Trump administration, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, also shot to number one on Amazon, where it remained for just a few weeks.

Comey's book, given the author's unique point of view, could be more disruptive than Wolff's. CNN, who acquired an early copy of the book, says that Comey:

The book's Amazon page can be found here.

Donald Trump has already opined on the book on his favorite platform, Twitter:
