Tiwit5 Stars Out Of 5Truly touching story from a very honorable man!August 22, 2014TiwitQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Such an inspiring story of the life of this amazing man. It makes you laugh and makes you cry as Dr Carson's life story unfolds. It just put another stamp of confirmation on the high esteem with which I regard this man who shares his faith as easily as he shares his vast medical knowledge. He binds it all together with a rare dose of common sense thinking and always is quick to give credit to others who influenced his life as well as thanks to God for his "gifted hands." A very special read!

He started as a kid without a father, and with a mother who workd three jobs, to pay the bills.
Ben was having problems in school, and his Mom, who had only a third grade education, and couldn't read, told her two sons, that they had to read a book a week, and write a book report, and then give it to her to read; but they didn't know she couldn't read.
Ben started reading history and archaeology books, and while in school, he was able to answer all the teachers questions; and went from dumb Benny, to the most knowledgeable person in class.
Before Ben performed any operation, he would Pray to God, and have his whole team be all Christians, who also prayed before surgeries.
Dr. Carson soon, at around 35 years old, seperated twins, in Africa, a well as other countries; from his position as Head of Pediatriac Neurosurgery, at John's-Hopkins Medical Clinic.
He is now running for a position in the Us Congress.
He is a Christian and world renowned Authority on Seperating Siamese Twins.
Janet Shaffer5 Stars Out Of 5A very worthwhile readSeptember 19, 2013Janet ShafferQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Just in the past year have I become aware of Ben Carson and have been fascinated with his wisdom and his life history. Even as he gives a first hand account of his many accomplishments, I don't hear pride, but a humility for what God has allowed and enabled him to do in his life. Though he worked hard and studied long, it was his faith in God that brought him to the successful person he is today. I have passed my copy along to my sister.
