Everything to Gain is the warm, unpretentious account of how Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter created a new, full life after their challenging and rewarding years in the White House. The Carters discuss their changing relationship over the course of a long and eventful marriage; they examine America's urgent health issues (and share their personal rules for longevity); they describe the rugged labor and joyous satisfaction of their work with Habitat for Humanity; and they discuss their efforts through The Carter Center to promote peace and human rights. Drawing upon their own experiences and those of many others, the Carters propose dozens of ways for any couple in career transition to renew their commitment to themselves and to life and to enjoy emotional, physical, and spiritual health. A rich and revealing portrait of two of our most notable Americans, Everything to Gain is a robust answer for every couple wondering, "What now?"From Publishers Weekly:
The former President and First Lady alternate first-person reminiscences with sections written jointly to tell the story of their lives after leaving the White House in 1980. Frankly acknowledging the trauma of the lost election, the Carters record their efforts to overcome the difficulties of making a fresh start while deeply in debt, adjusting to life in a small house in Plains, Ga., and other challenges. They describe in helpful and heartening detail the stages they went through on their way to building a new life and making the most of their abilities. There is practical advice from both husband and wife about exercise, good health habits and hard, useful work. Although they despair over the ills besetting society, the Carters do their best to make a difference. Volunteers in Habitat for Humanity, they help construct shelters for the homeless in the U.S. The inspiring husband-and-wife team also pursues their goal of contributing to a better world at the Carter Center of Emory University.
