This is an Instaread Summary of One Nation by Ben Carson M.D and Candy Carson. Below is a preview of the earlier sections of the summary:
Chapter 1: To secure the future for the next generation, Americans need to take quick, decisive, and prayerful action. Problems facing the U.S. today include: lack of education, bigotry, elitism, moral issues that have divided the people, and financial issues. The nation's leaders need to return to morality, common sense, and manners in order to work together and find solutions. Individuals should educate themselves and their children, hold their political officials accountable, learn how to compromise, and pray for wisdom. Bullying seems to be on the rise in the nation's schools. Children are learning to be bullies by watching the adults in their lives. In order to put an end to the bullying problem in the schools, adults need to set a good example by working harder to see things from the other person's perspective, ignoring the rules of political correctness, and engaging in intelligent discussions. In addition to common sense and manners, people need to be educated. A good education gives a person power. Courage is also required to stand up to secular progressives and other bad influences who want to lead the U.S. away from the values set up by the founding fathers in the Constitution. If individuals take action on their own, collectively they can pass on to the next generation a country they can be proud of.

Thank you for this precise, concise review. Liked the thumbnail summaries on complex policy issues. Enjoyed the upbeat narration. I always like the author to narrate and that is just a personal preference. Narrator was articulate. Recommend this in comparing this candidate with others among those who are too time strapped to read the entire book. I was interested enough in this to consider reading the details in the larger volume.
Based upon this summary (I have not read the complete book) Carson is day dreaming. Everything in our country according to him is supposed to be addressed from a Judeo-Christian, highly educated, families caring for families, political parties collaborating to cut spending and close tax loopholes, "wonderful" utopia. The whole thing was almost laughable. I wanted to learn how he would address all the current issues with this country were he President. Now I know...........I'll not be supporting him.
This is only the second summary-type book I've listened to and although I've not cared for this or the first one (Faulkner in 5 Minutes), I will likely listen to at least another before turning off completely.
It was droll......no real energy.
