Janet Shaffer5 Stars Out Of 5I am impressedSeptember 19, 2013Janet ShafferQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Ben Carson has a wisdom that could be put to good use if those in authority in our country would take it into consideration. Many of his answers to the issues facing our country are simple, so simple that one wonders why some of our elite in office have not implemented any of them. I believe Ben Carson is a voice that needs to be heard. He may not have all the answers, but what he says makes more sense to me then anything else I have heard or seen Anyone who remembers what we were like as a nation, even 50 years ago and would like it to return to some resemblance of what we were, will enjoy this book, but might also be challenged to do whatever possible to help bring the needed changes.

Ben Carson shares a wealth of Godly wisdom and common sense, and relates it to what is needed to bring our nation back to economic health. The information needs to be applied to our personal lives, and then nationally. It is a very encouraging book and shows how to aim our efforts in the right direction in order to succeed.
