The book also relates the story of Carter's religious conversion experience and gives clues as to his extremely self-righteous attitude and his inability to tolerate or even attempt to understand points of view that differ from his own.
For example, prior to the 1960's, the Georgia General Assembly (legislature) was apportioned on the basis of the county unit system, which was an attempt to balance the interests of the rural areas of the state with those of the urban areas. Completely unable or unwilling to see the rural point of view in the matter, Carter describes the county unit system as "corrupt," but provides no evidence of that. Considering that attitude, and the fact that the book was written to coincide with Carter's initial effort to become President, I have given the book 3 stars.
