Don't expect this book to light you on fire.

I applaud the author on his amazing transition from ghetto to wealth and achievement. I am glad he had what it takes to get there. But this book didn't really explain to me WHAT that was and how others can get there too. Inspiring, but not really instructive. Maybe that...

    Highly Motivational

    This book is a highly motivational book. It encourages people to keep on going. He encourages people from every race and ethnicity that they can achieve their goals. I was a little nervous about whether or not I would make a good doctor, but with the help of Dr. Carson, I am encouraged that I will not only be a good doctor, but a great doctor.

    A reviewer

    This book is very well written and is a great inspiration to me for my future. Ben Carson inspired me to think more of my future when it comes to wanting to be a doctor. He is a great doctor with an intelligent mind, he is one of my mentors. Overall this book is good for people that want to become doctors!

    Good book to unleash your potential

    Very inspirational, I have learned a lot from this man. Humble in his approach to his work. Describing what each letter of THINK BIG means to him and for others.

    Recommended for inspirational benefit

    Dr. Carson has accomplished almost the impossible in his life considering from where he came. I feel this book would be a good one for a recent graduate, a mother or anyone who is not sure where he/she is going yet. His mother was one of the most influential people in his life and should receive some kind of medal. She pushed he and his brother and it turned out great. I have not finished the book yet. Part of the story is told in his mother's words and is very true to the movie I had watched of his life thus far. A good read.

    Fantastic book

    Think Big is a book for all ages. It's about Dr. Carson who grew up in Michigan right where I am from. He writes about his youth, and how poorly he did in school. He mentions some of his mentors who help him throughout life. And he writes about his anger issues he faced, which shock me very much from him almost hitting his mom to almost stabbing a friend. Now he's a well accomplished neurosurgeon at John Hopkins Hospital. This book shows if you really want to make a change in your life you can. What a fantastic book.
