Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story by Ben Carson During Black
History Month, one of my Facebook friends was posting pictures of influential
African Americans in the place of her profile photo. For some reason, the
photograph of Ben Carson caught my eye.
After doing some digging (google searching), I discovered that Dr. Carson is a prominent pediatric neurosurgeon currently practicing in Baltimore. Since February, all of his works have been on my must read list. I recently completed Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story. Carson's path to success is clearly spelled out in this book. Each step acting as a guide to how a poor kid from Detroit, would become a Yale graduate and the 11th African American to become a board certified neurologist in the United States. I found this to be an inspiring story that could easily be mistaken as a work of fiction.
