Synopsis: From the Detroit ghetto of his youth to the vaunted halls of Baltimore's Johns Hopkins Hospital, the extraordinary life of Dr. Ben Solomon Carson is rooted in hard work, faith, family and a thirst for learning that, once realized, could not be quenched. With these fundamentals of his life entrenched, Carson, described as "the poster child for the American Dream," set about shattering stereotypes, breaking down boundaries and crushing the political correctness he believes is "destroying our nation" -- just one of the beliefs that catapulted the reluctant politician, retired neurosurgeon and recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom to the front of the pack of 2016 Republican presidential candidates. In "What I Believe: A Collection of My Syndicated Columns," Carson details as only he can his most personal and unshakeable beliefs. All written and published before he announced his bid for the U.S. presidency, Carson unapologetically identifies the nation's problems ? government expansion, poor education priorities, lack of personal responsibility and, yes, Obamacare ? and offers solutions born of his unique experience. At the heart of every column is the question: What will it take to bring our divided nation together? For many Americans, it seems the answer is the man who so unabashedly asks and answers.
About the Author: Dr. Carson is an emeritus professor of neurosurgery, oncology, plastic surgery and pediatrics at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. In 1984, he was named director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Children?s Center, a position he retired from on June 30, 2013. In 2008, he was named the inaugural recipient of a professorship in his name, the Benjamin S. Carson Sr., M.D., and Dr. Evelyn Spiro, R.N., Professor of Pediatric Neurosurgery. Also in 2008, he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor in the land. Dr. Carson is interested in all aspects of pediatric neurosurgery and has a special interest in trigeminal neuralgia in adults. Through his philanthropic foundation, Carson Scholars Fund, he also is interested in maximizing the intellectual potential of every child. An internationally renowned physician, Dr. Carson has authored more than 100 neurosurgical publications and has been awarded more than 60 honorary doctorate degrees and dozens of national merit citations. Dr. Carson writes a weekly syndicated column and has written five best-selling books. His fifth book, "America The Beautiful," was released early in 2012 and made The New York Times bestseller list.
