Dear Reader, In February 2013 I gave a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast Standing a few feet from President Obama, I warned my fellow citizens of the dangers facing our country and called for a return to the principles that made America great.Many Americans heard and responded, but our nation s decline has continued Today the danger is greater than ever before, andDear Reader, In February 2013 I gave a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast Standing a few feet from President Obama, I warned my fellow citizens of the dangers facing our country and called for a return to the principles that made America great.Many Americans heard and responded, but our nation s decline has continued Today the danger is greater than ever before, and I have never shared a urgent message than I do now Our growing debt and deteriorating morals have driven us far from the founders intent We ve made very little progress in basic education Obamacare threatens our health, liberty, and financial future Media elitism and political correctness are out of control Worst of all, we seem to have lost our ability to discuss important issues calmly and respectfully regardless of party affiliation or other differences As a doctor rather than a politician, I care about what works, not whether someone has an R or a D after his or her name We have to come together to solve our problems Knowing that the future of my grandchildren is in jeopardy because of reckless spending, godless government, and mean spirited attempts to silence critics left me no choice but to write this book I have endeavored to propose a road out of our decline, appealing to every American s decency and common sense If each of us sits back and expects someone else to take action, it will soon be too late But with your help, I firmly believe that America may once again be one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all Sincerely, Ben Carson

One of the fairest political books I've read. Ben Carson, along with his wife, have a knack for direct, insightful, but fair observations on the landscape surrounding them. While Mr. Carson undoubtedly falls on the more Conservative side of the spectrum he still criticizes the GOP frequently. He does his best to state his opponents views with an air of respect, and then politely describe why he disagreed. His analysis of different issues is engaging and illuminating, but what makes the book trul [...]
Everyone should read this book. At least some of this book. Carson is brilliant, with such a sensible and reasoned approach to the difficulties our fractured nation is facing today. With malice toward none and encouragement for all. Such good stuff.
I didn't think it was very good. In fact, I didn't even finish the book. He's' very arrogant and his writing is the same! I think he isn't aware of a lot of things or at least doesn't approach the reality of what he writes.Kudos to him for having a high IQ and making it into Medical School and becoming the Dr. who developed a way to save babies. He assumes that anyone can do the same. Work hard, go to college. I don't disagree with what he is saying but for much of the population he is talking a [...]
I admit I am a big fan of Dr. Ben Carson and have read and liked several of his books. So I was predisposed to like this book, and I did. Although I agree with most of what he says, I like that he encourages readers to think for themselves. He wants people to form their own educated opinions, based on knowledge and wisdom. He is a big supporter of education and created and operates a nonprofit to encourage and help good students. putting his beliefs into action, unlike many who want other people [...]
Short on policy specifics with plenty of red meat for social conservatives. Not a single footnote anywhere in the book. No nuance, hardly any balance at ALL, with oversimplified answers to complex issues.
Finished it very quickly. While I don't agree with all of his political beliefs (he has a subtle conservative bias that was easy to recognize) he has great input into how we've fallen off as a country and how we must change for the better.
Dr. Ben Carson is running for President! I am so happy we have someone running with his principles, character, and wisdom. This book explains his vision for our nation. He believes our nation was founded on Godly principles but we have strayed from them. He explains how we might be able to turn our nation around. I know the biggest knock on him running for president is his inexperience, but I think it is time to elect a Statesman instead of a politician. Our nation is in trouble and if we Americ [...]
I really enjoyed this well written, easy to read book. One Nation stands out as a jewel in the vast wasteland of the books produced by the religious right, and I really wished I could give it more than three stars. Despite my left-leaning outlook, I found myself agreeing with at least 2/3 of this book. (I was going to say 3/4 until I hit the anti-evolution rant. I know, I know, it was only a few pages, but it seemed much longer.) Ben Carson sets out to find common ground with his political oppon [...]
I admire Dr. Ben Carson greatly. He has a phenomenal understanding of politics and many of the most pressing issues affecting the United States. He does not demean those who disagree with him, but rather presents his ideas of what he believes and how we as a nation can work together to make changes.He was poor as a child and his mother had only a third-grade education, but she was wise. She taught him and his brother not to use their disadvantages as excuses but rather to think and work their wa [...]
Didn't finish. He asks why someone might be offended at being told to read and meditate on a passage of the Christian bible that tells people to come back to the Lord. Why? Maybe because I'm not Christian, nor Jewish. But I don't consider myself less American due to that.
I began reading this book because I had heard Dr. Ben Carson was considering running for President of the United States. Having seen the movie, "Gifted Hands," I was familiar somewhat with his story and was impressed with him both as a person and as a world-renowned neurosurgeon. However, I was a bit skeptical of a potential bid for the presidency. After all, he has absolutely no political experience, legislative or executive. How could he possibly fill the office of chief executive without any [...]
This book makes no sense, unless he is going to be the next American presidential candidate. In the US there is half the unemployment of most European countries. This is thanks to Obama. He managed to improve health. He tried in every way to not get into conflicts, if anything out of it. Obama was the best president since Kennedy: surely even the most honest. And his "insecurities" as said in the book that seem to have "devastated" America, are dictated by his failure to cynicism typical of most [...]
Awesome. I've had tremendous respect for other presidential candidates in the past. I am now age 35 and Ben Carson is the first 'potential' candidate that I've been actually excited about. This book may have lacked in some literary areas but all I could focus on was the content of the message and Ben's common sense, tolerance, and yet principled views laced with logic and compassion really touched me. I don't agree with all of his political views, but as he says, its better to have a leader you [...]
I've always admired Dr. Carson, from his work as head of Pediatric Surgery at Johns Hopkins University to his overcoming a poverty stricken Detroit upbringing.One Nation seems to have come out of his speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast in 2013. It is his philosophy of the direction, we as Americans should take. Many will not like the religiousness, but that's who he is. As Americans, he is also calling on us to get involved. There are action plans at the end of each chapter. Many of the id [...]
Ben Carson has the answers to the current problems facing our nation. Refute political correctness. Relearn the art of compromise. Be respectful to one another. Become informed, use common sense, logic and reasoning. Work together to balance the budget and lessen the national debt.Although not an official candidate, Ben Carson is running for President. He should be elected in 2016 and reelected again in 2020. I know of no other person who possesses the wisdom, understanding, knowledge, truth, an [...]
I struggled to review this one. On the one hand Dr. Carson brings up many excellent points and offers some much needed common sense to the political debate. His forcible rejection of the PC Police, the call to greater freedom of speech in an honest and frank debate is a breath of fresh air as is his common sense discussion of healthcare and the broken system of DC politicking. He brings an intelligent and unapologetic voice of opposition to the undeniably broken status quo. On the other hand: so [...]
Ben Carson, in his book "One Nation", did an excellent job presenting common sense principles that grounded our country at its foundation. He opened each chapter with a verse from the book of Proverbs and then illustrated its principle. The book is not meant to be a highly academic reference, but rather a well written reminder of what the Bible has to say about government and the principles our country was founded upon. He is especially severe on this sense of political correctness that American [...]
This man, Dr. Ben Carson, makes more sense that anyone speaking out loud these days. A noted pediatric neurologist, Dr. Carson is smart & well spoken yet he possesses the every day common sense that is found lacking in many highly educated people. This book explores the problems found in America today and sensible ways to solve them. For someone with no political background, Dr. Carson is amazingly well versed in the inner workings of our system and is quick to point out its successes as wel [...]
I'm not 18, but if I was, I would not be voting for Ben Carson. I am a liberal. An extreme liberal at that. However, I thought it was time I tried to open my views, and read every presidential candidates' books. I started with Ben Carson because he seems like a very quiet, intelligent man. Unlike Trump, it seems that Ben Carson has better methods at swaying public views than shouting and paying his way forward. He is a more moderate Republican, and I have to say, he is a very eloquent speaker. A [...]
One nation by Ben Carson is a very well written book that informed me on a large amount of topics in modern society. There are many reoccurring topics and themes this book goes over, things are very important to understand in our day in age. Since there was so much information being introduced it kept me reading for a long time without stopping because of being tired. The most shocking part of the book is the fact that Ben Carson was a young child when he had to deal with the hardships of pover [...]
Dr. Carson is an incredibly smart person, but he says a lot of stupid things, and he really doesn't know how to solve many of America's problems. He's said things like comparing Obamacare to slavery, and has stuck his foot in his mouth a few times, and there are some parts of this book where he brings up things like that he says and talks about how people twist his words. He does bring up many problems facing our nation, out of control deficit, welfare, education. Out of nearly all these problem [...]
What a great book! Mr. Carson is so wise and gentle in his approach to how to fix what's wrong with our nation. He tackles everything from the national debt to political correctness and gives his readers practical ways they can make a difference in our nation. I really hope he decides to step into the political arena. We could really use his integrity and knowledge in Washington. Here are a few of my favorite quotes:"Never fall into the trap of engaging in personal attacks while letting the topi [...]
A good book. I'd vote for this guy.
One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future by Ben Carson, MD“One Nation" is a look into Dr. Carson’s political vision for America. Taking aim at political correctness and its impact on honest speech Dr. Carson presents unashamedly his views and provides action steps to take. Find out why this progressive reviewer though finding Dr. Carson approachable disagrees strongly with a religious worldview that fogs the mind of an otherwise well-intentioned, accomplished man. This call [...]
A quick read that makes me feel like I know Ben Carson and his stance a lot better.A brief outline of the points he makes (going from memory because I listened to the audiobook):Political Correctness is not just annoying, but dangerous. At first I thought this was a little overstated - people always complain about political correctness, usually when they want to say something offensive - but he kind of won me over. There are some ways in which political correctness can discourage us from speakin [...]
Its tempting when you admire a person to really like any books they put out. It is necessary to really focus on the book itself. This is one of those occasions for me. I have a great deal of respect for Dr. Carson but this book could have been better. It reads as a manifesto of his outlook on our Nation but so many of his points are just a statement of position. I would have liked it better if he had fleshed out more of his issues and stated the reasoning behind that position. He could have eith [...]
I have always admired Dr. Carson, but reading this book helped me realize what a sensible, down-to-earth man he really is. He doesn't try to make himself seem smarter by using big words and over-complicating each topic. Instead, he dives into the subject at hand by using common sense approaches that have worked since elementary school: will my/these decisions hurt or help others? What am I willing to compromise (without compromising my personal values) to meet the ultimate goal?Dr. Carson ends e [...]
I honestly didn't know what to expect from this book. I decided to read it based on interviews I'd read and heard from Dr. Carson. Every time the man opens his mouth, common sense falls out. I wanted to know more.The book is a collection of Dr. Carson's thoughts on today's hot-button issues. He pulls no punches and takes no prisoners, discussing everything from political correctness to Washington in-fighting and everything in between. He offers practical - common sense - ways to look at the issu [...]
I read this book so I could get to know more about this presidential candidate. I loved what I learned about him. He is the recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor in the country. He and his wife founded the Carson Scholars Fund, which gives scholarships to students for their academic achievements. He, along with Billy Graham, are the only two people who have been honored to be chosen to give the National Prayer Breakfast twice. I love his Christian beliefs, hi [...]
This book is an easy read and yet it touches and sometimes dives head first into the decline of our country. Dr. Carson does not beat you with a stick about how you may be a part of this. Instead steadily builds his case and teaches how we can improve. It falls back to God, family and the Constitutionhe knows and understands it and in this book is eager to share it with you. It has been long time since I have heard the words “one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. [...]
