The acclaimed brain surgeon and bestselling authors plan for restoring America's greatness
Dr. Ben Carson made headlines with his keynote at the National Prayer Breakfast in February 2013. Standing just a few feet from President Obama, the neurosurgeon offered a common sense critique of liberal government, calling for a return to our historic culture of personal responsibility, free markets, and upward mobility. The speech instantly went viral; The Wall Street Journal even ran an editorial, "Ben Carson for President."
Now, in this sequel to their #1 New York Times bestseller America the Beautiful, Dr. and Mrs. Carson offer a bold plan to stop the countrys slide into fiscal and moral decay.
Avoiding the political correctness of politicians and the animosity of Washington lawyers, Dr. Carson calls for respectful discussion and disagreement, with no subjects off limits. Applying the problem-solving skills he honed as a surgeon, he takes on tough issues such as education, health care, family values, race relations, taxes, charity, and the role of faith in public life.
In his journey from poverty to the top of his field, Dr. Carson has lived the American dream. He shows how we can save that dream for our future generations, by restoring a moral, informed citizenry that will support "one nation, under God, indivisible."
BEN CARSON, M.D., raised by a poor single mother in Detroit, recently retired as Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins after a groundbreaking medical career. He is the founder of the Carson Scholars Fund and the author of five previous books, including the bestselling memoir Gifted Hands.
CANDY CARSON is his wife, the mother of their three sons, and the co-author of their bestseller America the Beautiful. They now live in West Palm Beach, Florida.

—The Wall Street Journal
“Dr. Carson prescribes a dose of ‘tough love’ to cure the nation’s ills and restore our faith in government and ourselves.”
“A speech worthy of Booker T. Washington. . . . The beauty of Carson’s argument exceeds its simplicity.”
