Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story Reviews
My first reading of Dr. Carson’s story happened when I was 18 years old. I had (and still have) an obsession with the brain, and it was that obsession which led me to the book in the first place. Admittedly, my initial interest was not in his personal story, but in his medical experience. And I’d hoped the book would go into great detail about his surgeries; namely, his successful separation of Siamese twins conjoined at the head.
I have always been intrigued by ben Carson, but this book made me respect him in a more broad light.
"Gifted Hands" sets the standards straight, which is that through hard work, determination, and sheer persistence --the American dream, the good life is attainable. Inequality didn't stop him from unveiling his potential. Ben Carson makes it apparent that with the right mind, spirit, and purpose an odyssey from the inner-city of Detroit to renowned neurosurgeon cannot be explained by a mere fluke. Gifted Hand is not just an autobiography, it is motivation and inspiration that can be viewed as an archetype to guild many who can relate. The inspiration comes to those searching for a way out, but are unaware of where to begin. It's motivation in continuing forward in spite of the roadblocks and challenges that lie in the way. Gifted Hands a fine example to the many young people with backgrounds similar to Ben Carson's who can see his path as an embodiment of success.
This is a fantastic book! The beginning of this reading explains Doctor Ben Carson's childhood as a troubled boy, without a father. There are many chapters that are inspiring and give hope to young teens. The book progresses to explain his young adult life where he studies and works during the summer, to achieve his dream as a physician. Once I got about half way through the book, I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN! Doctor Carson talks about his career as a physician, saving countless lives. You can almost picture yourself in the hospital as he performs a hemispherectomy or craniotomy on a dying child. Lastly, Ben Carson, is a great man of God. Reading this book may even strengthen your faith!
I've felt Dr. Ben Carson was a great person, but his book brings out his history and some of the surgeries he's performed. He is very good at giving God credit for what he is, but also his mother, who loves God and both of her sons.
