Publisher's Summary

Jimmy Carter has lived the most admired and productive post-presidency in the nation's history. Through The Carter Center, which he and Rosalynn Carter founded in 1982, President Carter has fought neglected diseases, waged peace in war zones, and built hope among some of the most forgotten and needy people in the world.
Serving in more than 70 nations, he has led peacekeeping efforts for Ethiopia, North Korea, Haiti, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Uganda and Sudan. With his colleagues from The Carter Center, he has monitored more than 65 elections in troubled nations, from Palestine to Indonesia. Carter's bold initiatives, undertaken with dedicated colleagues, have eliminated, prevented, or cured an array of diseases that have been characterized as "neglected" by WHO and that afflict tens of millions of people unnecessarily. The Carter Center has taught millions of African families how to increase the production of food grains, while Rosalynn Carter has led a vigorous war against the stigma of mental illness around the world, which she describes in this audio.
"Immersing ourselves among these deprived and suffering people has been a great blessing as it stretched our minds and hearts," Carter says. This is the story of his post-presidency.
