I purchased this book for my daughter. She is in the 10th grade and they were assigned this book to read. She is enjoying it and says that it is good reading.
After listening to my friend explain Ben Carson's story, I immediately ordered the autobiography. It was so interesting and similar to my life that I told my mother about it, and she finished the whole book before I did. I still reading it when I have spare time. Ben went from low-income to well off surgeon. I want to go to med school and I am also low income so this novel is such an inspiration to me to keep going higher no matter what struggles come.
After recently visiting Baltimore, MD and John Hopkins Hospital and hearing so many stories of Ben Carson, MD, I was inspired to purchase and read this book. It was a wonderful and inspiring book.
I truly feel that with all he's been able to accomplish. I can also be inspired to accomplish my goals in life. No matter where you come from or what you've had to encounter.
I was a teenager when I first read "Gifted Hands." I read it every few years. Now as a young adult, I still find renewed inspiration each time I read about his journey!! What a powerful man!!
Wonderful book showing how someone starting near the bottom con rise to the top with hard work even though being kicked down many times along the way.
This is an excellent book about Dr. Carson. Lots of interesting info regarding neurosurgery for children. Insight great into Dr. Carson, who might be a presidential candidate in 2016.
