Ben Carson, M.D., works medical miracles. Today, he's one of the most celebrated neurosurgeons in the world. In Gifted Hands, he tells of his inspiring odyssey from his childhood in inner-city Detroit to his position as director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital at age 33. Ben Carson is a role model for anyone who attempts the seemingly impossible as he takes you into the operating room where he has saved countless lives. Filled with fascinating case histories, this is the dramatic and intimate story of Ben Carson's struggle to beat the odds -- and of the faith and genius that make him one of the greatest life-givers of the century.

I read this with our 10 year old son who is home schooled. He loves this story and is inspired to study hard when he considers the achievements of Ben Carson and his difficult circumstances. My son has asked for us to read this again this year - and our 14 year old son has also wanted to listen in.
The chapter where Ben's mum makes him read 2 books a week is a favourite in our household, as it reinforces concepts we hold dear such as, parents encouraging kids to excel, and students taking their learning into their own hands!

A must read for anyone, any age. And read it again in five years. And again five years after that. And five after that. And five...
