Renowned doctor Benjamin Carson set out to discover what makes America the nation that it is. After sifting through the founding of our nation, to past triumphs and tragedies, to the current state of political polarization, healthcare debates, and financial turmoil, Dr. Carson finds out what is right and good about America, and what is good is rooted in the America weve become through hard work and enterprise, and a belief that our best is yet to come.

He is also the author of four bestselling books---Gifted Hands, Think Big, The Big Picture, and Take the Risk.
