In this wonderfully evocative volume, following the outstanding success of The Hornet's Nest, Christmas in Plains, and his classic, An Hour Before Daylight, Jimmy Carter shows us the things that matter most, the simple relaxed days and nights that he has enjoyed with family and friends through the years and across generations.
Here are lively and witty accounts of exploring the outdoors with his father and with black playmates, making furniture and painting, and exploring new adventures and places with children, grandchildren, and friends. He describes how he learned to share life with his wife, Rosalynn, to grant each other personal space, and to compete with her on the tennis court, high mountains, trout streams, and ski slopes.
These lifetime experiences can be an inspirational guide to anyone desiring to stretch mind and heart, and to combine work and pleasure. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “What gives Sharing Good Times friction and depth is Carter’s sometimes bracing understanding of his own flaws.” 

    New York Times

  • “Jimmy Carter’s books of homespun reminiscences are far more than Christmas glitter. Sharing Good Times celebrates the act of sharing not as a maudlin moment but as a process of maturation.”

    Barnes & Noble editorial review

  • “Carter is relaxed and clearly enjoys reading his work as he describes trips taken with the entire Carter family, fishing excursions, mountain-climbing adventures, and more. His self-deprecating humor, as well as his wisdom and balanced look at life, meshes well with his classic Southern drawl. While the stories themselves are interesting, the fact that he continues to lead such an active life and to undertake new pursuits is inspirational. His willingness to share this aspect of his life is a treat...Carter’s...voice is reassuring, and his subject matter is entertaining.”
