    "the world needs to THINK BIG!"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Ben Carson is an inspiring doctor and his life story and philosophy is so refreshing! I've read this book as a teenager and now again as an adult too- it's been brilliant every time; there is something here for everyone.
    Listen to this book- and get your children and your own parents to listen to it too!

    Story
    "A SUPERACHIEVER"

    I learned about Ben Carson by watching the great movie "Gifted Hands". His mother was married when she was 13 to a pastor, was a semi-illiterate woman, who discovered that her husband had another wife, ran away with her 2 small children and worked as a maid, many times in 2-3 jobs, and barely made it. When Ben, the younger kid, was in 5th grade, he was semi-illiterate himself, his best grade was a "D", couldn't do math and everyone made fun of him. Suddenly, his mother cut the TV time and made them read 2 books a week. This was the turning point to Ben and his brother. Ben Carson became the best in his class, graduated in Medicine from Yale University and went to the field of Neurosurgery in Johns Hopkins where he became the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery when he was only 33....
    An excellent man, a superachiever. Read/ listen to the book and feel inspired.

    Story
    "Inspirational"

    I read this book right after reading Gifted Hands and I enjoyed both . Parts of the story was duplicated in both books , but this went into details on how to reach your potential. I think it all makes sense and I will try to put these ideas into place and encourage my children and grandkids to be the best that they can be too!
