Ben Carson is story about a man who did know what he was gonna do with his life. Ben Carson had no dreams what so ever had no hopes. Ben Carson thought he would not make but he made it. He did bad things when he was little and made horrible grades and he had the potential to make the good grades but he was not trying hard enough. But then one day it hit him that he had to make good grades if he wanna do something with his life like be a doctor. So he woke up and just stared doing his thins meaning study hard and show that he could do it and then he did he graduate from High School and graduated at a great college dealing with doctoring. Ben Carson was a surgical doctor and while being a doctor he also came up with a theory and that theory was dealing with tuomor and peoples brain damage and it was really and it made me want to go out and show people what I am made of and show them that I am smart and I will be most likely to succeed in my life if I have high dreams. I recommend this book to anyone because this book opens your eyes and see that you can do what ever you set your mind to and it shows that you can learn from his mistakes in his book. So go out and get it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

In this book is one of the most inspiring stories I have ever read. The hard work, and struggles that Dr Carson had to overcome to materialize his dream and goals. He makes one realize that outside forces have almost no influence on one.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
