    This book questions the notion that Carter was a complete failure as a president, and it is one of the best treatments of Carter's presidency. It's well-written with first-hand accounts, but also, thoughtful analysis. This book is between a memoir and a "life and times" book. Readers g...

    It's well past time to give President Carter his due. This book sets out to do just that. Eizenstat has had an up close and personal relationship with Carter for decades. One would think that this would mean that he would only see the "good" in the President, but he also points out the...

    First and foremost, a large thank you to NetGalley, Stuart E. Eizenstat, St. Martin?s Press, and Thomas Dunne Books for providing me with a copy of this publication, which allows me to provide you with an unbiased review. The presidency of James Earl (Jimmy) Carter has been seen b...

    I didn't read this entire monumental tome in five days. I read a very small part of it, just the section on the Israel-Egypt peace treaty, and not all of that. I wouldn't have chosen this book on my own, but the organizer of my local Jewish Community Center book festival asked me t...

    The author of President Carter: The White House Years, Stuart Eizenstat, had a front row seat to the rise to power for Jimmy Carter. Having linked up with the former President when he ran for Govenor of Georgia, Eizenstat continued to work for Carter through his presidency. Thus this n...

    I admit that before reading this book, most of the knowledge I had about President Carter was about his time after being President and having to do with his humanitarian work. This book laid out not only Carter?s wins and losses as President, but as Chief Domestic Policy Advisor. Pre...

    This account of Pres. Carter's years is not only well written but insightful. It provides a more than interesting account into an administration that came into office at a very critical time in history. The book itself shares accounts of how a Presidency functions ...

    A great read and an important update if the role President Carter played in the aftermath of Watergate and a bridge to the 80?s and President Reagan. A lot more was accomplished than popular retelling and Carter deserves credit - in the age of the Liar in Chief tRump - of having inte...

    This book, by an important insider in the Carter White House, is by far the most authoritative account of the Carter presidency to date. Unlike other books (including my own) which focus on one part of the story, Stu Eizenstat gives an amazing picture of everything that was going on at...

    * Exceptionally well-written book about a man whose legacy has only grown stronger since serving as President. There have been many other books written about him previously, but this one excels in also discussing others in his administration. Lots to learn for everyone. * I received...

    A man full of character, humanity, compassion, and love for his country who truly never had the respect he deserved. So much so that when he returned to Wyoming Pa I not only walked I ran to see Pres. Carter at 88yo speak on May 28, 2013 in the pouring rain with his wife Rosalynn by ...

    ''When Roosevelt left office in 1909, he had protected 230 million acres of public land. When Carter left office in 1981, he had more than doubled the total amount of public land from Roosevelt and every president since'' This book is an inside account of the Carter's years analyzed...

    What a treat to have such an in-depth look at a recent and often overlooked president. Certainly eye-opening and at times thrilling, as in the Camp David Accords and the Iran hostage crisis. Fascinating to see how Carter?s deeply principled character?steeped in his Christian faith?...
