Ben Carson is a 1 time AALBC.com Bestselling Author

Benjamin Solomon Carson, Sr. had a childhood dream of becoming a physician. Growing up in a single parent home with dire poverty, poor grades, a horrible temper, and low self-esteem appeared to preclude the realization of that dream.

But, today, he is the director of pediatric neurosurgery at The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, a position he has held since 1984 at age 33. He operates on more than 300 children every year at Johns Hopkins, plus he is sought out around the world for his expertise in separating conjoined twins and conducting brain surgery to control seizures.

A recipient of countless awards and honors, the author of three popular books, and the co-founder, with his wife, Candy, of a non-profit organization to help hard-working youth fund a college education, he enjoys a deeply satisfying life rich in accomplishments. Success has taken Dr. Carson far from his humble roots in the inner cities of Detroit and Boston, and he credits his mother and a host of individuals who expected the very best from him.
