President Jimmy Carter recounts a lifetime of mixing business and pleasure in this series of personal recollections. Carter is relaxed and clearly enjoys reading his work as he describes trips taken with the entire Carter family, fishing excursions, mountain-climbing adventures, and more. His self-deprecating humor, as well as his wisdom and balanced look at life, meshes well with his classic Southern drawl. While the stories themselves are interesting, the fact that he continues to lead such an active life and to undertake new pursuits is inspirational. His willingness to share this aspect of his life is a treat. While this is not Carter's best book, his voice is reassuring, and his subject matter is entertaining.
