Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Raised in poverty in Baltimore, Carson was directed by his mother from an early age to read and improve himself through education. He went on to become a neurosurgeon and an advocate for education, developing the Carson Scholars Fund to encourage similarly situated students to improve their prospects through education. In this call to action, Carson admonishes politicians, particularly because of the growing national debt and Obamacare, and encourages Americans to take more individual responsibility for themselves. Highlighting the causes of disunity and decline in the nation, Carson takes aim at political correctness and its impact on curbing honest speech on critical issues. He goes on to outline solutions to the nation’s woes in health care, education, and tax policy, generally relying on capitalism rather than big government. Carson intersperses his own inspirational life story and biblical passages as he argues for the essential role of faith in addressing the myriad complex issues facing the nation. --Vanessa Bush


“His groundbreaking contributions to medicine and his inspiring efforts to help America’s youth fulfill their potential have strengthened our Nation.”—Presidential Medal of Freedom, 2008

“The Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon may not be politically correct, but he's closer to correct than we've heard in years.”
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.”

—Sam Donaldson 

“A speech worthy of Booker T. Washington. . . . The beauty of Carson’s argument exceeds its simplicity.”
—Jonah Goldberg, National Review

Dr. Faria has summed up most of my thoughts beautifully, so I won't belabor them here. I just want to add on a personal note that as a post-doc in cardiovascular research at Hopkins I had the pleasure of both passing Dr. Carson in the hallway and hearing him give a presentation on being a "complete" doctor. You might think it a small thing to pass someone in the hallway, especially at Hopkins, but even at his relatively young age then, Dr. Carson was a rock star. Yet, unlike so many in academia who walk the halls like Colossus/Colossi, Dr. Carson walked the halls with equal parts confidence AND humility. He did NOT shuffle his feet, but he did not puff out his chest, either. As anyone who's read "Healing Hands" knows, when he first got to Hopkins he was often treated like an orderly. Amazingly, he didn't have a problem with it. Stepping into the other person's shoes (how many of us can really do that?) his assessment was: "What else might the nurse think? She'd never seen an African-American surgeon before." I mention it because Dr. Carson has an uncanny ability to see all sides of a situation--a rare and precious skill. So when he says things are out of control, may I suggest that we should all listen. He is FAR from a conservative clap-trap. He has come up from adverse poverty (worst possible conditions: no father, sporadic mother, and so much anger as an adolescent that he almost killed another boy) and understands both tiers of this country (plutocracy and the rest of us) as he's lived at both extremes. I only wish that everyone who is reading this book had a chance to see the man in action--his brilliance, his confidence, his passion, his compassion, his humility. They wouldn't dare to write some of the garbage of the one "star" reviews. "Unique" doesn't began to describe him. He is a once in a decade (or longer) blend of brains, guts, and heart. I hope we are clever enough to understand this and leverage this to our collective benefit.

I'm a liberal. I voted for Obama, twice. I'm a lifelong democrat. Growing up, I had anger problems, much like Ben Carson did, and his book Gifted Hands help me find a more peaceful and empowered root to peace and success in my life. Ben Carson has, with his past works on his life, have been amazingly aiding. So of course I read on with his books.

I disagree with some of his points. But listening to the reviews against him. They're condescending, they're insulting, they're telling him that he should keep his mouth shut, that he should remember his place, that he shouldn't forget about the education that he was given. This man, his story, is one of hard work. His contribution to medicine is legendary. This man was not given anything. And even if you disagree with his political views, that doesn't diminish the man nor his contributions to society.

But this is a book review and this is a 5 star book.

Let me make this clear, I don't agree with everything that he writes. I'm pro obamacare though I think it could be done better and I don't believe doing nothing is a proper structure either. If he has a new plan, I'd love for him to go into it in more depth, and I'd be happy to consider his solution.

Political Correctness he nails completely. I don't want to be tolerated. I don't mind being insulted. You have the right to be offended in this country, it's not a right to never be offended. Our colleges have it wrong, they're silencing free thought, hindering the growth of minds to think outside the box, to ask controversial questions, to engage in conversation with people they disagree with. This is why everyone we have discussions with now a days with disparate views becomes a yelling match.

I began to follow the meteoric career of Dr Ben Carson for decades after reading an article about him in Readers Digest many years ago. Dr. Carson was the first surgeon to operate successfully on conjoined twins at the head in 1987. He has since retired from the field of Pediatric neurosurgery, where he has achieved so much -- researching, teaching, operating, and in alleviating the pain and suffering of his young patients. Nevertheless, he has continued to contribute and excel as a Best Selling author of five other books and writing pieces for the Washington Times, GOPUSA, and Fox News. He is also a fervid spokesman of family traditional values and an American patriot concerned with the problems of affecting this nation, politically, economically, morally.

In February of 2013, he gave a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast. With President Obama nearby, Dr. Carson criticized the direction the country has taken, indirectly criticizing the President's domestic policies. With this book he hones in in his observations and follows through exposing the ills afflicting American society, deteriorating moral values, political correctness, and the government attempts to take over the health care system.

As a result, Dr. Ben Carson was singled out for IRS auditing (harassment) by the Obama administration last fall. He came out clean! Dr. Carson had criticized ObamaCare in October of 2013, while speaking in Washington, D.C., stating that ObamaCare "was about control," and went on to quote the Russian communist founder of the Soviet Union, Vladimir Lenin, who admitted, "Socialized medicine is the keystone to the establishment of a socialist state."

For Dr.
