Publisher's Description

Gifted Hands by and about Ben Carson, M.D., is the inspiring story of an inner-city kid with poor grades and little motivation, who, at age thirty-three, became director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins University Hospital. Gifted Hands will transplace 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. In 1987, Dr. Carson gained worldwide recognition for his part in the first successful separation of Siamese twins joined at the back of the head -- an extremely complex and delicate operation that was five months of planning and twenty-two hours of actual surgery, involving a surgical plan that Carson helped initiate. Gifted Hands reveals a man with humility, decency, compassion, courage, and sensitivity who serves as a role model for young people (and everyone else) in need of encouragement to attempt the seemingly impossible and to excel in whatever they attempt. Dr. Carson also describes the key role that his highly intelligent though relatively uneducated mother played in his metamorphosis from an unmotivated ghetto youngster into one of the most respected neurosurgeons in the world.

Author Bio

Dr. Benjamin S. Carson, Sr., M.D., became the chief of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in 1984 at the age of 33, making him the youngest major division director in the hospital's history. He has written and published nine books, four of which were co-authored with Candy,  his wife of 40 years. Dr. Carson was the recipient of the 2006 Spingarn Medal. In June 2008, he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. U.S. News Media Group and Harvard's Center for Public Leadership recognized Dr. Carson as one of "America's Best Leaders" in 2008. In 2014, the Gallup Organization, in their annual survey, named Dr. Carson as one of the 10 Most Admired Men in the World.

Dr. Carson and his wife are co-founders of the Carson Scholars Fund, which recognizes young people of all backgrounds for exceptional academic and humanitarian accomplishments. In addition, Dr. Carson is now the Honorary National Chairman of the My Faith Votes campaign and continues to work tirelessly for the cause of the American people.

Cecil Murphey, author of 112 books, has also assisted well-known personalities in writing their biographies.

    If I could, I would put this in the hands of every teenager in America!!! I have taught and tutored youth for nearly 40 years and I can tell you our children NEED Godly role models... there are many role models, but few that I would ever point my children toward. Dr. Carson is an incredible, inspirational role model for America's youth. I can't recommend this book highly enough! If I could afford it I'd buy it in bulk and hand it out to every student (Hint, hint, youth pastors and church leaders?).

    Really enjoyed reading of Ben Carson's life and the many obsticles he successfully overcame to reach the pinnacle of his profession. He never gave up due to the encouragement of his mother to be the best he could be. Very inspiring.

    This review was written for Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story.
    From the ghettos of Detroit to the surgery rooms of the renowned John Hopkins hospital, "Gifted Hands" succinctly chronicles Ben Carson's remarkable life and career. Firmly believing that God had gifted his hands with the capacity to bring about healing, Dr. Carson saved hundreds of lives and successfully performed complicated neurosurgeries that no one thought possible. Fully crediting his single mom with her consistent mantra of encouragement and dedication to his education, Carson worked hard, studied hard, and prayed hard to become the man that he remains today.

    A truly inspiring biography!
