|Summary, etc.:||In this autobiography, President "Carter tells what he is proud of and what he might do differently. He discusses his regret at losing his re-election, but how he and Rosalynn pushed on and made a new life and second and third rewarding careers. He is frank about the presidents who have succeeded him, world leaders, and his passions for the causes he cares most about, particularly the condition of women and the deprived people of the developing world"--Amazon.com.|

Having written several books alreadyâon his religious beliefs, his years in the White House, his childhoodâCarter looks back on 90 years of life and offers lessons learned as well as information not covered in his previous works. New material includes his time in the navy, his years as a farmer involved in community projects, the backstories to his gubernatorial and presidential runs, an intimate look at his marriage as it has grown in equal partnership, and his relationships with other presidents. He offers commentary on racial changes in the nation, from his early days playing with boys from African American families who lived nearby to witnessing the slow integration of blacks in the U.S. military to dealing with the harsh racial climate of Georgia that objected to any efforts at integration and with challenges to Carter's more progressive impulses that figured in his bids for local offices. Interspersed among the essays are poems, drawings, and photographs that enhance the feeling of intimacy as Carter reveals private thoughts and recollections over a fascinating career as businessman, politician, evangelist, and humanitarian.
