Not only did a poor black man living in the ghetto of Detroit get an amazing education, he also became one of the most famous neurosurgeons in America. Its a very inspiring Gifted Hands tells the story of Dr. I love the story, particularly the beginning where he talks about his mother. This takes you from his living in Detroit and being raised b a single mom who insisted he achieve success. We have to take advantage of opportunities and be responsible for our choices.

This is the second biography I've read about Black neurosurgeons,Dr. Will beading it to the reading list for this summer reading challenge I hope to offer to the kids at my church this summer.
Dr Carson tells of his early years of poor grades; his Mom's rules to insure that her boys would do their best in school; his raise to top student in his classes; his issues with a bad temper; his continuous faith and prayers to Jesus Christ; his raise in the medical field; his wonderful married life; and the medical procedures that led to saving lives of children with medical brain issues. But, instead of being preachy, it's a great story. I wish this was required reading in high schools. I think the only reason he may sound a bit arrogant is because he's writing in the first person, speaking of all his successes. Gifted Hands reveals a man with humility, decency, compassion, courage, and sensitivity who serves as a role model for young people and everyone else in need of encouragement to attempt the seemingly impossible and to excel in whatever they attempt.

Ben's arrogance, holiness, and fairy tales ceaselessly damage what should be an inspiring story. Why should I give someone else such power over my life? We create our own destiny by the way we do things. Eventually, his grades go up until he eventually graduates with high honors and gets into Yale, then later on Johns Hopkins. Regardless of how the good doctor fares in his future political aspirations, he'll always be a winner in his eyes. I hope that Ben Carson will run for President. Whatever direction we choose, if we can realize that every hurdle we jump strengthens and prepares us for the next one, we're already on the way to success. I fault the media for perpetuating these grandiose dreams.
He's quite inspirational because of his less than noble background. His arrogance in his own abilities at times put me off. I love how grounded he remains despite all of his incredible contributions to the field of neurosurgery.

I just decided to read it in its entirety. However, Ben harbors an irascible temper which climaxes in high school when he nearly stabs his friend over choice of radio station. Being kind, friendly, and helpful takes less energy and relieves much of the pressure. Anticipate good things; watch for them. Amazing how a lady who only had 3rd Grade education managed to raise two great scientists!

If it's being rated by emotional investment, it gets 5 stars.
