Oh my goodness!!!! Where can I start? This book was truly amzing and inspirational. I absolutely loved it! Dr. Ben Carson's story is truly incredible. He grew up without much, and was teased a lot as a child, but he still managed to keep his head up, stay at the top of his class, and eventually, he followed his dream, and became one of the world's top neurosurgeons. I admire him so much. I would recommend this book to EVERYONE. It's for people of all ages, and this book will truly touch you and possibly change the way you see things and people. Please read this book!

    Meh

    He may be an incredible doctor, but that does not make him a good author. This book is written at an elementary school reading level. I just was hoping for a more intellectual read. Would recommend for 4th graders.

    Slow

    Written like a 5th grader. Did someone other than the doctor write it?
