Publisher's Description

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

… 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, healthcare, 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.

    Although I'm not American, I follow what's happening in the States with interest, as it's a kind of barometer to the western world. I love Carson's insight and logical conclusions. I also love how he non-apologetically interweaves his faith throughout the book.

    Highly recommend it!

    Ben 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.

    This is a must-read for anyone in the US from middle-school age and above. 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.

    Ben takes a straight forward approach to many of the problems America is facing. His reflection on the past and view of the future should be read with great thought by every American.
