it was amazing
bookshelves: biography, history, history-politics
Recommended for: Jimmy Carter fans. No, really.

You know how Carter got pretty much whipped by Reagan in 1980? Yeah. You know how everybody pretty much hated Carter when he left office? Yeah. You know how everybody loves him now? Yeah. This is how he did it. A lot of Presidents have left office then become more popular as a citizen, but Carter has done it in a way no others have. This book chronicles how Carter has spent his years out of office, from his turbulent relationships with George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton to his efforts to broker peace throughout the world. It also treats with respect Carter's religious faith and explores how that faith guided him. An interesting look at Carter, and probably the least politically charged of the many books about him.
