    "This well written book by one of our former American presidents should be on everyone's reading list! The book goes over Mr. Carters growing up in a farming community and speaks of his early days as a child. I always had great respect for Carter as a person. After reading this book, that respect only grew."

    "I know that even though this book was written before he became our President Obama, it speaks volumes about hope. It will keep you riveted from beginning to end. I think just knowing that he wrote this while being in the senate, but would later go on to be our President makes it very thought provoking."

    "This is a decent choice, because it fills some of the requirements. However, it isn't the best book, judging by the reviews. Someone who is interested in American presidents would probably be interested in this, so it's better than nothing."
