Notable Reads: White House Diary by Jimmy Carter

Former President and Nobel Laurette, Jimmy Carter, has released a new book, White House Diary,  that is sure to be a best seller. This isn't just any book. This is his own personal DIARY from his term in the Oval office! Originally 5000 pages long at the end of his presidency in 1981, President Carter chose what he felt were the best entries and compiled them into a book.

President Carter was on the Larry King Live show and stated that the book touches upon some illuminating beats to his Presidency, including forceful advocacy for nuclear containment, sustainable energy, human rights, and peace in the Middle East (not to mention, some not-so-nice remarks about the late Senator Ted Kennedy). He also includes some retrospective commentary in annotation form for a comprehensive "then and now" look at the state of American politics. This is sure to be an AMAZING read!
