    In this book, Ben Carson provides many thought-provoking ideas about our current situation in the United States. He is able to use our history as a nation to provide possible solutions to problems and even make predictions about the future. Ben often draws insight from his past experiences in poverty and his rise to success. He understands the necessity and value of hard work and motivation, and shows the role that it played in creating one of the most influential nations this world has ever seen. Most importantly, Ben remembers to find inspiration from the Bible, the same book that inspired the Founding Fathers over 200 years ago.

    it has been utmost refreshing to read the success story of Dr. Ben Carson. And it made me, a green card holder, very proud of the potential America still offers. At the same time it made me again hopeful that "change is on the way" should Dr. Carson decide to enter the political scene and offer his many talents to better the direction America is taking. I am looking very much forward to learn more about Dr. Carson's political plans for which I wish him the best of luck. Sincerely, Juergen Blank Middleton, MA

    Very intelligent man. We need people like this in Washington. Somebody that is not a politic, but a problem solver. Someone that is willing to seek to understand the democrats point of view and work with them in a friendly manner, but never deviate from their core principals.

    Excellent and thought provoking. Everyone, no matter what political arena you are in, should read this book with an open heart and an opened mind because America is Beautiful. Dr. Carson speaks from the heart and gives some excellent thoughts as to how we can keep her that way!

    This was an outstanding book that I am glad that I had the opportunity to read in what short time that I have left. It was a historical book of not only the author but of American history. The book also cited many references that I plan to carry on and read. The author also tied history to current days events and showed a correlation, which was very refreshing also. I would highly recommend this book.
