Ben Carson’s Betrayal

March 15, 2016|POLITICS|

March 8, 2016|BOOK REVIEW|

3/8/16 - I'm well aware of the fact that this looks like the most boring book in the world. I've always thought that its cover does a disservice to the great story that's inside of it. I read The Goal back in college, which was [...]
