Gifted Hands by Ben Carson


Ben Carson has been in the news a lot lately as a Republican Candidate, but before his goal to enter the white house he was a gifted surgeon. I read his book Gifted Hands many years ago and was impressed by his tenacity and despite having a difficult childhood (he and his brother were raised by their mother who sometimes worked 2-3 jobs to support them) he worked hard as a medical student and became Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins at age 33.

I heard last week that there was a book about him. He has indeed been through some struggles in his life. Just shows what hard work and determination can do.
