Overview

From Inner-City Nobody to Brilliant Neurosurgeon

When Ben Carson was in school, his classmates called him the class dummy. Many—including Ben himself—doubted that he would ever amount to anything. But his mother never let him quit. She encouraged Ben to do better and reach higher for his dreams, and eventually he discovered a deep love of learning. Today this young boy from the inner-city is one of the world’s greatest pediatric neurosurgeons. Through determination and lot of hard work, Ben overcame his many obstacles and is now dedicated to saving the lives of critically ill children around the world.

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.
