Dr. Ben Carson took his life from a potential juvenile delinquent in the Detroit ghetto to the lauded Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital. He states that he was an angry and troubled youth and credits the Bible and his mother with giving him the ability to turn his thoughts and actions around and make something of his life.
What I Believe is a collection of his syndicated columns written for The Washington Times. Dr. Ben strongly believes that people are not born to a certain path in life. Each of us must work hard to achieve what we want and make our own destiny. He writes about breaking stereotypes and doing away with political correctness. He covers a vast range of topics such as poverty, racism, education, faith, terrorism, foreign policy, healthcare and the economy.
These columns were written prior to his decision to run for the President of the United States. If you've followed Ben's campaign at all, you probably already know a great deal of what's in this book. If you don't know much about Ben Carson, I would definitely recommend reading this book. It's obvious that Ben Carson has spent a great deal of time thinking about what actions lead us on a path to destruction, for both individuals and the nation as a whole. He is well-educated, well-meaning and has some great ideas. Will he make a good president? That's for you to decide.
