By Ben Carson
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, health care 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.
"'America the Beautiful' by BenCarson, M.D. is by far the best book I have ever, ever, ever read about the United States of America, its origin, why it has been successful and how to preserve this great nation. This book should be a required part of the core curriculum for every Civics/Government class in all of our Intermediate Schools, High Schools and Colleges/Universities in America.ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´å Gordon G.
