Jimmy Carter is a man without artifice, and his charming book reflects that same directness. His presentation is a simple, straightforward reading of his text. Listeners familiar with his presidential speeches will recognize the distinctive Georgia drawl and rather wooden delivery. However, as the book progresses and Carter discusses his and Rosalynn's work on health issues in some of the most desperately poor places on earth, he becomes much more animated. And it is with obvious warmth and pride that he introduces Rosalynn, who narrates the sections dealing with her personal initiatives. The bonus disc, recordings of four of Jimmy Carter's Sunday school classes, offers the most personal and engaging glimpse into the former president's personality.
