In his major New York Times bestseller, Jimmy Carter looks back from ninety years of age and “reveals private thoughts and recollections over a fascinating career as businessman, politician, evangelist, and humanitarian” Jimmy Carter, thirty-ninth President, Nobel Peace Prize winner, international humanitarian, fisherman, reflects on his full and happy life with pride, humor, and a few second thoughts. At ninety, Jimmy Carter reflects on his public and private life with a frankness that is disarming. He adds detail and emotion about his youth in rural Georgia that he described in his magnificent An Hour Before Daylight. He writes about racism and the isolation of the Carters. He describes the brutality of the hazing regimen at Annapolis, and how he nearly lost his life twice serving on submarines and his amazing interview with Admiral Rickover. He describes the profound influence his mother had on him, and how he admired his father even though he didn't emulate him. He admits that he decided to quit the Navy and later enter politics without consulting his wife, Rosalynn, and how appalled he is in retrospect. In his “warm and detailed memoir” ( Los Angeles Times), 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. In A Full Life, 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. This is a wise and moving look back from this remarkable man. Jimmy Carter has lived one of our great American lives -- from rural obscurity to world fame, universal respect, and contentment. A Full Life is an extraordinary read. The book roams over Carter's entire life. We learn about his upbringing on a peanut farm. He was a hard worker from the start. He learned about farming and woodworking. When he took over the family farm, he sought out education about agriculture. Carter joined the navy, and he was instrumental in the development of the first nuclear submarines. After discharge from the service, he returned to Plains, Georgia. In addition to the farm, he was active in his church and often taught Sunday school. He was a member of the Board of Education during the time schools were being desegregated. Carter was comfortable with African Americans from an early age. He worked side-by-side with them on the farm. His parents were far ahead of their time in their acceptance of African Americans. He entered politics as a state senator and went on to become governor. Jimmy Carter served as president from 1977-1981. The book discusses his experiences in this role. His main goals as president were to keep the peace and expand human rights. (Carter has continued to work tirelessly for these same issues in his post-presidency with the Carter Center.) It was quite interesting to read his reactions to many of the things he had to handle as president, from the Panama Canal to the Iranian hostage crisis, from race relations to the Mideast peace process. Jimmy Carter was truly a Renaissance man. His knowledge covers an amazing scope. In addition to all his political, agriculture, and religious work, Carter paints and writes poems. Some of these are included in the book, and it was truly a highlight to see these. You may know that Carter has recently been diagnosed with cancer at 90 years old. His amazing strength and positive outlook have been displayed for all to see. He has written more than 24 books. He still teaches Sunday school. Rosalynn, his wife and partner, remains a huge source of support for him. This book is an excellent coda to a meaningful and productive live. Jimmy Carter will always be a hero to me, and this book is an excellent collection of reasons why I feel that way. A wonderful, beautiful reading experience.
