I wasn't sure that reading a diary would be all that interesting, but it turned out to be fascinating and I ended up reading it straight through. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants insight into any of the big decisions or events of President Carter's term. (And, unlike the previous reviewer, I actually DID read the book...)

pattiMG, He was only expressing his concern for the derailing of informative news to make way for "sensational" or "rating hungry" news. Fox news does not legitimately report unbiased news, and because of this there has become a polarization of the American people. One side is strictly conservative and the other is strictly liberal. I believe his main point was to point out that we need to come together to solve problems. We need to begin to make compromises. Also, simply because one has an opposing view point as yours does not mean it isn't worth listening to. Simply because he disapproves of fox news doesn't make his entire argument dismissible. It is this idea of ignoring all others who disagree that is bringing us as a whole nation down. Listen to others; Show respect.

Let me begin by saying that this will be a review of the book, not of the president. I was not around when Carter was president, so I found this book fascinating as to what our country was like and the problems it faced during those 4 years. I love politics, and I especially enjoyed reading "behind the scenes" into a President's life and everything that he went through. What makes this book so important is how relevant it is to today's world. I was shocked to see so many parallels to our current political system. Jimmy Carter presents a strong message for everyone to work together in order to make progress on serious problems that we face. Overall, whether you like Jimmy Carter or not, this is a must read book for anyone concerned about partisan politics and the damage that being divided causes our country. This book makes me want to learn more about Jimmy Carter and the late 1970's in America.

Gave me a different perspective of Jimmy Carter, despite being a turn-off for his unsolicited and unrelentless criticism of subsequent administrations. He was really an outsider when he became the President, stood on his ground most of the time against the Washington elite, the Congress, and other career politicians. It is a shame his presidency overall is considered a failure, which is very likely true to most Americans who lived during his term (and maybe because we rate presidential performance too early). He could have been a great President, but his timing was off. He was too nice, indecisive, and naive, and those 3 factors overwhelmed his honesty, integrity, and kind heart. Reagan was definitely the man for that period of time.

I will not be wasting my time reading about Ronald Reagan any time soon, and he was far from being our best president. President Carter is a wonderful person with so much to offer; every person to enter the office should be as good and honest a person as James Earl Carter is. As for the book, it is a great read. I recomend this book to all who want to see that a truly decent man can rise to power. President Carter has achieved more in the years since he was in the White House than most achieve in their administration. God bless, MR. President, and keep thgood work going.

Do not buy. Look for books about Ronald Reagan, one of our best presidents.

Having been born 8 years after President Carter left office I found myself with a terrible image of the man, but when analyzed, proven void of substance. After reading his diary I now have a completely different, and educated, opinion of the man. With major achievements, Carter comes across as an integral man who tried to redirect the course of the nation. Unfortunately, adverse economical and political circumstances impede this redirection to be maintained, and worse, left the man with a stained reputation. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to get to know the real Jimmy Carter, who wants to understand his four years in office, and to anyone who wants to see the negative side of politicized democracy.
