    This is the first book by Ben Carson that I've read. He is a wonderful writer. I grew up leaning to the left politically, and reading what he writes makes me want to change my political beliefs. While reading it I also wanted to become a stronger Christian. He's an extremely intelligen...

    When you realize Ben Carson's unique background - that he grew up in poverty as an African American in the slums of Detroit and Boston; that his single Mom wisely motivated him to read as a pathway out of poverty; that reading gave him an insatiable appetite for learning; that he has b...

    I loved this book!! Everything about it rings true to me. I agree with the values, spirit, patriotic principles, and the ideas espoused and taught by Dr. Benjamin Carson. What I admired most was Dr. Carson's weaving of the statements and principles of the founding fathers into today's...

    Dr. Carson is a rising star, touted as the new voice of moderation of the Republican Party, so I was anxious to read his latest book. It is very disappointing. The book is a combination of one more moralistic rant from the right with a wildly simplistic analysis of the economics of cap...

    I read so many books but I rarely buy them because I can read all I want thanks to that amazing invention called the public library. However, I will definitely buy this one. I have tremendous respect for Dr. Benjamin Carson for his rise from poverty to become the head of pediatric neur...

    Sometimes just reading a book where an intelligent, thoughtful person speaks simple, common sense is all one needs to return one from a world filled with trivial, insane thoughts and ideas. This is one of those books and one of those people. Recommended for anyone who has just about gi...

    A neurosurgeon offers a corrective on what ails America, providing high school depth insight into categories like economics, education, public morality, race relations, politics, history, and health care. With his background in medicine, Carson speaks with some authority on health care...

    Very good book -- definitely political, but not partisan. Carson presents his own thoughts on America today, and what is needed to get us back-on-track as a nation. Although he sharply criticizes Obama's policies, he also criticizes the policies of Republicans in general and George W. ...

    Excellent thought provoking book. It should be required reading for all Americans. ...

    Ben Carson is the epitome of what it means to attain the American Dream. Ben and his brother Curtis were raised in poverty by a single mom in the inner cities of Boston and then Detroit. Their mother worked two to three jobs as a domestic servant. While she had only a 3rd grade educati...

    I have had this book on Kindle for some time but didn't read it until after following (and contributing to) the movement to recruit Dr. Ben Carson to run for president of the US. This man has a compelling personal story, which is covered in an earlier book Gifted Hands: The Ben Car...

    I respect Dr. Carson and agree with most of his ideas as presented in America the Beautiful. However, because the book offers an overview of many issues, it tends to oversimplify. Carson also seems far more optimistic than I am about the current state of our nation, particularly the pe...

    I enjoyed reading Dr. Carson's book and highly recommend anyone living in the United States of America should read it too. ...

    I bet 100 people could read this book and take away 100 different ideas or opinions. What I got out of this is that I'm wishy washy. The author of this book stands strong for his beliefs in religion, politics, marriage, welfare programs and many more issues. And by issues I mean hot to...

    Dr. Ben Carson has written a book, AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL, that is filled with history, insight, persuasive argument, and clear-headed ideas aimed at ending the problems that plague our country. He presents intelligent and simple views about where we come from, where we are, and where w...

    As any good Neoconservative these days, Carson invokes the founding fathers early and often. Carson quotes those old geezers nonstop in regards to government, poverty, education, and religion. I had to stop reading the book several times to check the date. It IS the 21st century and de...

    Ben Carson first came across my radar in 2013 when he gave the main talk at the National Prayer Breakfast. If you have not seen it, you can find it on YouTube. President Obama, who was on the podium during the speech, looks uncomfortable as he listened to Carson present a plain spoken,...

    I was excited to sign onto the library's lengthy waiting list to read America the Beautiful: Rediscovering What Made This Nation Great after hearing Dr. Carson speak (on TV) at a recent prayer breakfast. This book combines vignettes from his life with his ideas on why America is great...

    This a great book from the eyes of a man who grew up in extreme poverty in both Detroit and Boston during the racial wars in America. Because of the dogged determination of a single mom who did not allow him to watch much television and required him to read two books a week and give he...

    Dr. Ben Carson is a neurosurgeon who has also been politically active for quite some time (at least since the Clinton Administration). His book outlines what he thinks makes America a great nation, and where he thinks we have veered off the tracks. I thought the book was reasonably ...

    This is a great book. Carson's knowledge and understanding about our founding fathers if remarkable. He helps you understand what they wanted for our new country and shows the events that have taken us away from the path they intended for us. He not only understands what our problems a...

    An excellent book which I found very inspiring. I count my blessings that I live in America the Beautiful! ...

    Good book! I enjoyed recounting important events and statements from our founding fathers this holiday weekend. I think it's important to go back to our roots and recognize where our blessings come from and then to stand up for principles. Our decisions and our leaders' decisions shoul...

    Ben Carson is the epitome of what it means to attain the American Dream. Ben and his brother Curtis were raised in poverty by a single mom in the inner cities of Boston and then Detroit. Their mother worked two to three jobs as a domestic servant. While she had only a 3rd grade educati...

    I have had this book on Kindle for some time but didn't read it until after following (and contributing to) the movement to recruit Dr. Ben Carson to run for president of the US. This man has a compelling personal story, which is covered in an earlier book Gifted Hands: The Ben Car...

    I respect Dr. Carson and agree with most of his ideas as presented in America the Beautiful. However, because the book offers an overview of many issues, it tends to oversimplify. Carson also seems far more optimistic than I am about the current state of our nation, particularly the pe...

    As any good Neoconservative these days, Carson invokes the founding fathers early and often. Carson quotes those old geezers nonstop in regards to government, poverty, education, and religion. I had to stop reading the book several times to check the date. It IS the 21st century and de...

    Ben Carson first came across my radar in 2013 when he gave the main talk at the National Prayer Breakfast. If you have not seen it, you can find it on YouTube. President Obama, who was on the podium during the speech, looks uncomfortable as he listened to Carson present a plain spoken,...

    This is the first book by Ben Carson that I've read. He is a wonderful writer. I grew up leaning to the left politically, and reading what he writes makes me want to change my political beliefs. While reading it I also wanted to become a stronger Christian. He's an extremely intelligen...

    I loved this book!! Everything about it rings true to me. I agree with the values, spirit, patriotic principles, and the ideas espoused and taught by Dr. Benjamin Carson. What I admired most was Dr. Carson's weaving of the statements and principles of the founding fathers into today's...

    Dr. Carson is a rising star, touted as the new voice of moderation of the Republican Party, so I was anxious to read his latest book. It is very disappointing. The book is a combination of one more moralistic rant from the right with a wildly simplistic analysis of the economics of cap...

    I read so many books but I rarely buy them because I can read all I want thanks to that amazing invention called the public library. However, I will definitely buy this one. I have tremendous respect for Dr. Benjamin Carson for his rise from poverty to become the head of pediatric neur...

    Sometimes just reading a book where an intelligent, thoughtful person speaks simple, common sense is all one needs to return one from a world filled with trivial, insane thoughts and ideas. This is one of those books and one of those people. Recommended for anyone who has just about gi...

    THANK YOU! I was first inspired to read this after hearing Dr. Carson's speech at the National Prayer Republican National Convention. I always knew what a brilliant doctor Carson was, but this book just confirmed how wonderful he really is. He really embodies both the American dream an...

    excellent! Know him, worked with him , love him for his intelligence, integrity and for who he is despite what he could've become. Read this book and learn! ...

    Each year, the White House hosts a National Prayer Breakfast, hosted by the president and first lady, with a variety of important keynote speakers and typically attended by about 3,500. It is designed to be a forum for the political, social and business elite to assemble and build rela...

    ***Wisdom from the pen of a man who's seen the best and the worst of America*** Dr. Ben Carson, author, renowned surgeon and Chief of Pediatric Neurosurgery for Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore questions if it?s time for America to again ??work toward liberty and justice for...

    A neurosurgeon offers a corrective on what ails America, providing high school depth insight into categories like economics, education, public morality, race relations, politics, history, and health care. With his background in medicine, Carson speaks with some authority on health care...

    Very good book -- definitely political, but not partisan. Carson presents his own thoughts on America today, and what is needed to get us back-on-track as a nation. Although he sharply criticizes Obama's policies, he also criticizes the policies of Republicans in general and George W. ...

    Excellent thought provoking book. It should be required reading for all Americans. ...

    Ben Carson is the epitome of what it means to attain the American Dream. Ben and his brother Curtis were raised in poverty by a single mom in the inner cities of Boston and then Detroit. Their mother worked two to three jobs as a domestic servant. While she had only a 3rd grade educati...

    I have had this book on Kindle for some time but didn't read it until after following (and contributing to) the movement to recruit Dr. Ben Carson to run for president of the US. This man has a compelling personal story, which is covered in an earlier book Gifted Hands: The Ben Car...

    I respect Dr. Carson and agree with most of his ideas as presented in America the Beautiful. However, because the book offers an overview of many issues, it tends to oversimplify. Carson also seems far more optimistic than I am about the current state of our nation, particularly the pe...

    I enjoyed reading Dr. Carson's book and highly recommend anyone living in the United States of America should read it too. ...

    I bet 100 people could read this book and take away 100 different ideas or opinions. What I got out of this is that I'm wishy washy. The author of this book stands strong for his beliefs in religion, politics, marriage, welfare programs and many more issues. And by issues I mean hot to...

    Dr. Ben Carson has written a book, AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL, that is filled with history, insight, persuasive argument, and clear-headed ideas aimed at ending the problems that plague our country. He presents intelligent and simple views about where we come from, where we are, and where w...

    As any good Neoconservative these days, Carson invokes the founding fathers early and often. Carson quotes those old geezers nonstop in regards to government, poverty, education, and religion. I had to stop reading the book several times to check the date. It IS the 21st century and de...

    Ben Carson first came across my radar in 2013 when he gave the main talk at the National Prayer Breakfast. If you have not seen it, you can find it on YouTube. President Obama, who was on the podium during the speech, looks uncomfortable as he listened to Carson present a plain spoken,...

    I was excited to sign onto the library's lengthy waiting list to read America the Beautiful: Rediscovering What Made This Nation Great after hearing Dr. Carson speak (on TV) at a recent prayer breakfast. This book combines vignettes from his life with his ideas on why America is great...

    This a great book from the eyes of a man who grew up in extreme poverty in both Detroit and Boston during the racial wars in America. Because of the dogged determination of a single mom who did not allow him to watch much television and required him to read two books a week and give he...

    Dr. Ben Carson is a neurosurgeon who has also been politically active for quite some time (at least since the Clinton Administration). His book outlines what he thinks makes America a great nation, and where he thinks we have veered off the tracks. I thought the book was reasonably ...

    This is a great book. Carson's knowledge and understanding about our founding fathers if remarkable. He helps you understand what they wanted for our new country and shows the events that have taken us away from the path they intended for us. He not only understands what our problems a...
