WASHINGTON – He’s the nation’s top brain surgeon, a New York Times bestselling author and possible 2016 presidential contender, and Dr. Ben Carson says Nick Adams’ brand-new book, “The American Boomerang” is “right on target.”
Carson, a man known to be frank, made headlines with his instant viral keynote address at the National Prayer Breakfast in February 2013. Just feet away from President Obama, the neurosurgeon offered a common sense critique of liberal government, calling for a return to the nation’s historic culture of personal responsibility, free markets and upward mobility.
That’s echoed in Adams’ book, and the striking message is all the more special because he is not an American. Not even close. In fact, he was born in, raised in and is a citizen of Australia.
A true de Tocqueville of our time, Adams is giving Americans a fresh set of eyes on why America is the beacon of freedom and hope to world and why that greatness will endure.
Internationally renowned for his work as a speaker, lecturer, author, and media commentator Adams is best known for his work in the field of American exceptionalism. His work in the United States has seen him speak in more than 20 states, at conventions, corporate meetings, military bases, schools and churches. He’s been given awards for his work – even an honorary citizenship in America.
Focusing on the resilient nature of America, Adam’s book chronicles why the U.S., as it has time and time again, will triumph over current threats to its freedom and survival. Adams wrote the book imbued with the belief that if he, a foreigner, can be so optimistic about and committed to American institutions and principles, so, too, should Americans.
Carson said the Aussie’s resounding support for American exceptionalism “should be an encouragement for people from every nation of the world who seek freedom and prosperity.”
“He recognizes that the sources of American exceptionalism are the people and not the government,” Carson said.
Released by WND Books as of July 1, “The American Boomerang” is, as Lt. Col. Allen West says in the foreword, “a clarion call for America to arise, remember its goodness and greatness, and restore this republic, not just for its own sake but for that of the world. To once again be that beacon of liberty. It takes us from the founding to the present, sharing an inspiring vision along the way, and makes the case that American values are conservative values, and to preserve its exceptionalism, America must remain a center-right nation. Despite the prophets of gloom, in the eyes of outsider Nick Adams, America the Great will only continue to become greater.”

Carson’s comments come on the heels of talk radio host Glenn Beck’s gushing over the book and Adams’ message. In a state of pure admiration, Beck called Adams “more dedicated than most Americans are to tell us the truth about ourselves.”
And what other big names are joining in the praise of “The American Boomerang?”
- “Nick Adams – the de Tocqueville traveler of our times – has captured the essence of why America is destined to remain great. In ‘The American Boomerang,’ Nick reminds us why the virtues of exceptional America are steadfast in nature, that the challenges we face merely temper our reserve to continue our search for freedom and a civil society.” – (Edwin J. Feulner, Ph.D, founder and former president of the Heritage Foundation)
- “Nick Adams is the antidote to all the doubts the Left has sown among us about America’s mission. From across the Pacific, he has come to know us well, and love us. In a vivid and readable book, he proves that sometimes a spectator sees more of the game.” – (Dick Morris, former adviser to President Bill Clinton)
- “Foreigners, starting with Alexis de Tocqueville, have shown a unique understanding of the United States and what it means to be an American. Now Nick Adams, a young Australian, writes in this tradition, of old-fashioned American patriotism and courage – which aren’t actually old-fashioned at all.” – (Michael Barone, Washington Examiner)
- “The American Boomerang should be compulsory reading for every American. It is a call to action, and an outside voice reminding us of our promise in the world. It reasserts the American virtues we have recently begun to abandon, like faith and freedom. Adams’ conservative insight is invaluable and irresistible.” – (Ben Shapiro, editor-at-large, Breitbart.com)
- “Why is this place we call America, at this time, the exception to the historical rule? Read ‘American Boomerang’ to be reminded of the qualities that have made America the most prosperous, free, and benevolent nation in human history, and pass it on to those who may have forgotten.” – (Dan Bongino, author of Life Inside the Bubble)
- “It’s the locker room at half time and the home team is listless, confused, and playing lousy. But Nick Adams has a powerful pep talk for Team USA that is just the kind of bracing, snap-out-of-it, kick-in-the-pants that a great nation needs to get back in the game to win. ‘American Boomerang’ is more than a sorely needed love letter from Down Under – it’s a timely, wise, and heartfelt plea to America to embrace its inherent exceptionalism.” – (Jack Fowler, publisher of National Review)
- “‘The American Boomerang’ is an exquisitely clear insight into our nation’s story. Adams is an eloquent voice for conservatism, bringing intelligence and optimism about America’s future. In clear and forceful prose, he makes a case that those who may one day lead our nation would be remiss to ignore.” – (Nick Desatnick, editor-in-chief, Dartmouth Review)
“I hope to offer Americans a perspective they no longer have or maybe they have forgotten,” Adams said in his recent interview with Glenn Beck. “The American system is the best hope for humanity. And the world needs to adopt American values.”
