Goodreads Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
A year or two ago, Dr. Ben Carson was not as well known by the American people as he is today, now that he is a candidate for the Republican nomination. America the Beautiful, published in 2011, is one of many of Dr. Carson’s books. This book is very interesting because he wrote it before he was ever considering running for president. Everything discussed is thought through logically and clearly explained to the reader. He covers many topics that are important to the United States including racism, poverty, wars, taxes, healthcare, religion and etcetera. Dr. Ben Carson is an honest and religious man and his character is demonstrated throughout the book.
I was a little skeptical about reading America the Beautiful at first; I thought it would be a boring book about politics. I was happy to discover that Dr. Carson explained everything so clearly while including examples and anecdotes along the way to keep my interest. I am now a lot more knowledgeable about history and politics and I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn about their government without the lies and noise from politicians.
