Publisher's Description

In Think Big, which emanates from the last chapter of his best-selling Gifted Hands, Dr. Ben Carson prescribes his personal formula for success. And who could better advise than one who transformed his own life from that of being a ghetto kid with problems in school to becoming the most celebrated pediatric neurosurgeon in the world? With an acrostic, Dr. Carson spells out his philosophy of living: T -Talents/time: Recognize as gifts from God H -Hope for good things and be honest I -insight from people and good books N -Be nice to all people K -Knowledge: Recognize as they key to living B -Books: Read them actively I -In-depth learning skills: Develop them G -God: Never get too big for Him -- Think Big does not offer pat answers, or promise a life of ease, but it does show how a person should view problems, evaluate them, react to them, and eventually overcome them. The philosophy in Think Big can be applied by all individuals to their own lives and help them to make the most of the gifts that God has given them.

    This review was written for Think Big.
    This book was excellent and I read it in 2 days. Ben Carson has the keys to success and wants to share them with anyone that reads his book. He and his mother had very tough lives and through his mother's faith in God and her persistent positive messages to her children, they both became wonderful human beings. "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." I highly recommend this book for all readers that want to have great relationships and personal success. Ben is a very humble man and treats everyone with respect and honesty. He would make a great President for the USA.

    This inspiring Christ centered book is a wonderful "Part II"/companion to Dr. Carson's biography, Gifted Hands. I wholeheartedly recommend it to all readers. Parents and Grandparents should read it and pass it on to their loved ones. If you are looking for inspiration and a role model, here he is.

    This review was written for Think Big.
    I had the privilege of listening to and meeting Ben Carson in person in Tampa, FL. I bought this book, read it, and developed a lesson plan for it to use with my low-performing high school students (the top performers read Gifted Hands). Although they sometimes said it felt "preachy", they enjoyed it. They all took something from the book, and that is what was important to me. I wanted my students to understand the importance of understanding and treatment of each other. Why should honors students be the only ones to get his message and develop a plan?
