Reviews

"A warm and detailed memoir of his youth followed by a clear-eyed assessment of the issues he tackled as president and afterward . . . a sweeping overview of a broad range of issues and frequent credit to his wife Rosalynn . . . Carter puts the long arc of his story together the way he sees it. The book includes his accomplishments as a negotiator and peacemaker in the humblest way -- as a man who was at work on a larger project, something he continues to be. A primer for the generations who don't know his work and a personal retelling for those who do, A Full Life may herald the reappraisal he deserves."--Los Angeles Times
"Carter reveals private thoughts and recollections over a fascinating career as businessman, politician, evangelist, and humanitarian."--Booklist
"A Full Life is understated like the man, always warm and human, and in a few instances, even inspirational."--Buffalo News
"The former president is yet a force to be reckoned with. . . . The author takes the reader on an engaging personal journey through the later half of the 20th century, as he saw it."--Christian Science Monitor
"The drawings and poems by the author add even more of a personal touch, though crises in his marriage and his 'estrangement' from the Obama presidency offer the most noteworthy revelations. A memoir that reads like an epilogue to a life of accomplishment."--Kirkus Reviews
