Publisher's Description

In 1987, Dr. Benjamin Carson gained worldwide recognition for his part in the first successful separation of Siamese twins joined at the back of the head. Carson pioneered again in a rare procedure known as a hemispherectomy, giving children without hope a second chance at life through a daring operation in which he literally removes one half of their brain. Such breakthroughs aren’t unusual for Ben Carson. He’s been beating the odds since he was a child. Raised in inner-city Detroit by a mother with a third grade education, Ben lacked motivation. He had terrible grades. And a pathological temper threatened to put him in jail. But Sonya Carson convinced her son he could make something of his life, even though everything around him said otherwise. Trust in God, a relentless belief in his own capabilities, and sheer determination catapulted Ben from failing grades to the directorship of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. Gifted Hands takes you into the operating room to witness surgeries that made headlines around the world—and into the private mind of a compassionate, God-fearing physician who lives to help others.

    Well written. Ben Carson is a man of integrity and high value for all humans. His book reflects a wonderful testimony to the grace of God, to hard work, to godly living, and to strong Christian values. I highly recommend this book for parents who want to provide their children with reading material that has a lot to contribute.

    I first read Dr. Ben Carson's compelling biography almost 20 years ago and gave it to many friends as a gift at that time. This year I purchased it to give to my 9 year old grandson for his birthday along with the new DVD of Gifted Hands and Think Big. Dr. Ben Carson is one of the most inspiring people alive today and reading this book will show you why and, hopefully, touch and change the readers life. Dr. Carson has continued to show his devotion to life and his Lord in this awesome book and in his daily life.
