    Excellent Book for class biography assignments

    I purchased this book for my 9 year old daughter for a Black History Month assignment. This is a wonderful, well written book. My daughter actually enjoyed reading it and writing about Dr. Carson. His life story is a great lesson for children of all ages. He was a poor child, who struggled in school, but thanks to a good mother and hard work he rose to the top of his field. It also teachers through faith anything is possible. I definitely recommend this book.

    Boring

    Sadly, "boring" is the word my daughter used to describe this required reading. She said that it was repetitive. She was uninterested in reading about many of the same type of surgeries that he did. She also was unimpressed with his background and rise to the top. I feel badly because Ben Carson seems like a very interesting man with an inspirational story.
