Publisher's Description

 

From Inner-City Nobody to Brilliant Neurosurgeon

 

When Ben Carson was in school, his classmates called him the class dummy. Many—including Ben himself—doubted that he would ever amount to anything. But his mother never let him quit. She encouraged Ben to do better and reach higher for his dreams, and eventually he discovered a deep love of learning. Today this young boy from the inner-city is one of the world’s greatest pediatric neurosurgeons. Through determination and lot of hard work, Ben overcame his many obstacles and is now dedicated to saving the lives of critically ill children around the world.

    I got this for my grandson for his 11th birthday, but before giving it to him, I ended up reading the whole thing. It was only near the end that I remembered I had read the adult version a number of years ago--but forgotten so much. It was good the second time! A damaged edition was available for less, but it was certainly worth it to pay more for the "revised" edition, as it has an update. That was valuable to read!

    This is an amazing man with a fantastic story. (written by "Mrs. Walt")

    I bought this book for my 10 year old granddaughter. She reads constantly. I look over every resource on the CBD site before I order an item and was pleased with what I read.

    Before we wrapped it for Christmas, I sat and read part of it just to be sure it was what I expected. I got so caught up in the story that I was halfway through before I realized it. It is a wonderful book regardless of who you intend to vote for but even more so for Christians still considering choices. It's a wonderful book in non-election years as well.

    I bought this for my 7 year old grandson, who loves to read historical biographies. I didn't see that it was recommended for older kids. I read it and found it very inspiring. In a few years, will share with my grandson. Meanwhile, I'm sharing it with high school senior (who dislikes reading) in hopes of motivating him to make most of opportunities presented. Keep you posted...

    This book is amazing and uplifting. I am reading to my class and they are eating it up. Not just for children. If you want to read a story to encourage and inspire and you love science then read this book.

    We gave this to our 8 year old granddaughter who wants to become a doctor some day. She had the book read in only three nights and loved it. Ben Carson is an amazing man and his story mesmerized her.
