Additional Information

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 seventy 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 sixty-five 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 on the audio.

"Immersing ourselves among these deprived and suffering people has been a great blessing as it stretched our minds and hearts," Carter writes. This is the story of his post-presidency.

Beyond the White House is a book written by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and it covers his political, social, and humanitarian activities since he left the White House early in 1981. Carter has achieved much in his days since leaving Washington D.C. and he seems anxious to share his accomplishments with the reader. Through his Carter Center, the former president, his wife Rosalynn, and their team of associates at the center have labored long hours, traveled around the world, and met with dozens of foreign leaders to work out agreements, wipe out disease, and improve political freedom.

Most people already know about Jimmy Carter's humanitarian works and his efforts to improve the world around him. But some may not be aware of the actual events that have transpired while working toward these goals. Carter explains some of them in detail, and in some instances, he takes the details a bit too far. This is especially true in the book's opening chapters when Carter is... Read more
Jimmy Carter seems to have had more impact on the world - for the better - after his presidency than before. He is an inspiration to all compassionate audiobook listeners, and his book is both entertaining and inspiring. If only more world leaders were this compassionate! Beyond the White House makes for a great non fiction audiobook. With plenty of public speaking experience, Jimmy Carter is a suburb narrator. His wife Rosalynn contributes, and her words of wisdom - especially about mental health issues- are equally engaging. Both of their hearts come through on this production, and you feel like you get to know not only their work, but to know them as individuals with caring souls. Listeners will learn about world health issues they have never heard of before, and see that individuals do have the power to make a difference. Carter's welcoming, personal style will be an inspiration to young and old listeners alike.
Beyond the White House details the inspiring work that The Carter Center has accomplished across the globe. The audiobook is narrated by Jimmy Carter, and you don't get to be president of the United States without some vocal charisma. He is delightful as both narrator and author, and his work is an inspiration to all. From battling diseases written off as insignificant by larger NGO's, to monitoring the honesty of elections in third world countries, Carter has his hand in making the world a better place. His book will educate and inspire, while keeping the listener truly engaged from chapter to chapter. Jimmy Carter's wife Rosalynn also contributes - both to their foundation and to this audiobook production. She details her war against mental illness, and the way it has been swept under the rug by health officials. Their actions are infused by faith, and will inspire even the most cynical listeners.
