    An excellent book for all to read. At 90 years young, President Carter is still working selflessly for others. The book tells of his young years growing up, the different life experiences he has had, his presidency, and what he would do differently looking back.

    Excellent! Jimmy Carter really makes me feel like I am not doing enough with my life. He has boundless energy and thoughts (if not actions) on everything. Reading this book makes me realize the decisions he made as president, as well as the rest of his life, were from his heart. Great read.

    I don't wish him ill but this man and his doctrine almost ruined the country. And him trying to explain it is unbearable.
