What is America becoming? Or, more importantly, what can she be if we reclaim a vision for the things that made her great in the first place? In America the Beautiful, Dr. Ben Carson helps us learn from our past in order to chart a better course for our future.
From his personal ascent from inner-city poverty to international medical and humanitarian acclaim, Carson shares experiential insights that help us understand what is good about America, where we have gone astray, and which fundamental beliefs have guided America from her founding into preeminence among nations.
Written by a man who has experienced America's best and worst firsthand, America the Beautiful is at once alarming, convicting, and inspiring. You'll gain new perspectives on our nation's origins, our Judeo-Christian heritage, our educational system, capitalism versus socialism, our moral fabric, health care, and much more. An incisive manifesto of the values that shaped America's past and must shape her future, America the Beautiful calls us all to use our God-given talents to improve our lives, our communities, our nation, and our world.

He has my VOTE!
I would challenge everyone to either listen to his book or read his book.
We still have HOPE in America for our Future.
It was so easy to understand and hit the basics principles of what our Country was Foundered on in 1776.
This book was very easy to listen to and follow and moved at the right pace. Dion did an outstanding job.
It laid out a Simple Blue Print for America for a successful future... but if we don't change our direction in America we will be JUST LIKE ROME and Fall...
We Still Have Hope in America!!
It was an Awesome Book that every American should read or listen to as I am doing in my car.
Regardless of whether you are a Democrat, Republican or Independent, the references in this book about our country's early years are a must read. Later in the book, some of the implications for today seemed a bit repetitive, but the message is worthwhile.
this book is an excellent read. Dr. Carson makes many very good observations about our counrty and provides common sense solutions to fixing our problems. Read/Listened (Whispersync) to this book in less than 2 days.
A great source of wisdom
Ben Carson overcoming his difficult childhood situation
When Ben sat in his bathroom for hours with fear of his own anger and then leaves a changed man
I recommend this book to everyone. It is a great perspective on issues very relevant to the times
A great story. An the fact that this is a true story, adds to makes it just that much more inspiring.
I enjoyed the entire book overall.
No, almost. Could have very well could have be completed in one sitting, but I took two.
This perspective from an unusual and aclaimed source has some great ideas on how to get the country moving again and restore the civil discourse. It is not right or left wing. It is common sense.
The challenge for the country we should have had after 9/11.
We can be better than we are.
