I am a very slow reader - and I often read myself to sleep - even during the day. But I kept at it til I finished reading THINK BIG by Ben Carson. I bought this paper back book - (with very small print) at a restaurant in Mount Joy, PA selling CHOICE BOOKS. I am so thankful I got the book. It challenges me to do the best I can in whatever I am trying to do. It explains that making excuses for poor behavior is just that,EXCUSES, not reasons. My youngest daughter is a nurse - so I plan to mail this book to her - she will enjoy all that he shares about his medical experience. And she shares the same Christian faith that I do - and that Ben Carson does ( not denomination - but the Christian faith) so she will enjoy what he has to say about prayer. Of course Dr. Carson is now running for President. I sent him a small donation and he sent me 5 magnets with Run Ben Run printed on them. One is on the refrigerator door - the others are on each side of our van - except I gave one of them away this week to a man who stopped me at the Post Office and asked "How do you get a magnet ?" He told me that Dr. Carson had performed surgery on his wife - and that Ben Carson is one of the nicest persons he knows. Another time I stopped at a fast-food restaurant and a man asked about getting a magnet. I regretted that I hadn't given him one of mine - so when this man asked , this week, I was ready to give him one. I don't know if Ben Carson will become President of the United States - sometimes I think that he is just too good to be our President - even though at one time we were a Christian nation - now I think a 'Corrupt Nation' would better describe us. But Dr. Carson will get my vote in the primary for sure. And I am praying that God will have mercy on the United States of America and help us to turn back to HIM. I know this is how Ben Carson is praying, for sure. Thanks you for publishing such a good book.
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.
