Publisher's Description

Throughout his life, renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Benjamin Carson has needed to overcome many obstacles: His father leaving the family; being considered stupid by his classmates in grade school; growing up in inner-city Detroit; and having a violent temper. But Dr. Carson didn't let his circumstances control him, and instead discovered eight principles that helped shape his future.

In You Have a Brain: A Teen’s Guide to Think Big, Dr. Carson unpacks the eight important parts of Thinking Big—Talent, Honesty, Insight, being Nice, Knowledge, Books, In-Depth learning, and God—and presents the stories of people who demonstrated those things in his life. By applying the idea of T.H.I.N.K. B.I.G. to your life, and by looking at those around you as well, you too can overcome obstacles and work toward achieving your dreams.

Includes discussion questions.

    No matter what your political beliefs are, this book gives you hope. Ben Carson had many strikes against him growing up. His Mom refused to let him and his brother be held back because of those strikes. She expected them to do better than she did and she made plans to make sure that happened. And it did happen.

    My 12 yo son and I are about half-way through this book and this is the FIRST time he has been interested in reading ANYTHING. I mean it. For him to express his thoughts on this book in between readings is astounding. He has found it encouraging to know that he can also turn his attitude and studies around. My son has been two years behind in reading scores, but this book has been a spark in his motivation. He has carried this drive to his other lessons in Latin and Greek and is finding a renew sense of purpose and direction. The book is written with just enough vocabulary words to be helpful, but not overwhelming, and the accounts from Dr. Carson's life demonstrate the ability for anyone to overcome obstacles. This is the top contemporary read for me in a long time, as I usually only stick to the Bible, classics, and news.

    This review was written for You Have a Brain: A Teen's Guide to Think Big.
    Reading through the book, I was struck by the easy going tone of Carson. Additionally, while the audience is teens, the book is not 'dumbed down' or condescending in any way.

    The events Carson shares are relatable and purposeful. His life is inspirational and his words are full of wisdom. He shares specific incidents like a couple of long distance moves, harming a friend, and choosing between music and science. Though not every teen will experience these, the thought process, emotions, and choices serve as a model for other experiences. It was also refreshing how Carson related some menial events which at the time may have seemed ho-hum, but really helped prepare him for later in life. His job as a crane operator was not in the medical field at all, but the experience and understanding of how to operate a crane came in quite handy later in life during surgeries of precision. Using this example and others, Carson helps teen readers understand how experiences will shape and prepare us for adult life.

    During the second portion of the book, Carson unpacks T.H.I.N.K. B.I.G., letter by letter. He fully explains each concept, like talent, insight, and in-depth learning. Then, he shares practical ways he grew in that area and how teens can as well.

    Despite not being in the target audience age group, I found the book informative and motivational for me personally as an individual (with a brain) and as a mom with four children. Obviously, anyone can glean wisdom on how to go further in life at any age. We can all use some motivation to do better. The greatest gem I found in the book, though, was how to help my children do better in tangible ways. I know the book wasn't written for this purpose. However, when I read it, I found it is a treasure chest of ideas for parents of teens and soon to be teens. Some of those ideas include finding mentors for my children in specific areas and encouraging them to take on more responsibilities in their own areas of interest.
