Beyond the White House (Large Print) (Thorndike Nonfiction)

I bought this book as i am allways interested to see what exactly former Presidents and Prime Ministers do when they retire.

I found this a very interesting book the carter Center is involved in many areas i knew little or nothing about and as such i gained much knowledge from this read.

Jiimmy and his wife have ben champions ofr the little guy and the underprivillidged for many years in many countries.

I hope to one day be able to see first hand some of the work they have done as I am inspired and you will be as well

Being a fan of the genre I found this book a very good read.

There was some conjecture with Mc Nabbs "Bravo 2 Zero" and the factual content of it, I have read both this book and that one and find his writting entertaining and factual from what I understand of the regiment from research and speaking with former and current members.

This develops great charters and also does'nt shy from the harsh realities of what life in the regiment is all about.

Well written and easy to read with some moments of irony thru the book I would give this 2 thumbs up

This is one of the books that should be made compulsory reading in the senior years of high school, we fight terror on many levels and this is the best way to ammass long term change.

A truly engaing read a wonderful story please read this book and make a point of buying it as a gift for every birhtday you attend for the next 12 months and a portion of every sale will help take education to the very people most affected by terrorism
