I've read this book myself and it has inspired and amazed me on how someone can live in poverty and at the very bottom of their means and make it to the top. I donít know him personality but from what Iíve read, he had his struggles and he had his faith that he would overcome them, which he did, but as soon as he did he had the ambition and perseverance to succeed. But the book is about his life, from when he was a poor kid to when he became a successful doctor. They also told about his falls and comeback in his education. They also turned the book into a movie staring Cuba Gooding Jr. as Dr. Ben carson.
This book is for you if your life is a series of shattered dreams. This book is for you if you have no dreams at all. Itís for you if youíve bought the lie that youíll never amount to anything. Thatís not true. Your life is BIGófar bigger than youíve imagined. Inside these pages lie the keys to recognizing the full potential of your life. You wonít necessarily become a millionaire (though you might), but you will attain a life that is rewarding, significant, and more fruitful than you ever thought possible. The author of this book knows about hardship. Ben Carson grew up in inner-city Detroit. His mother was illiterate. His father had left the family. His grade-school classmates considered Ben stupid. He struggled with a violent temper. In every respect, Benís harsh circumstances seemed only to point to a harsher future and a bad end. But thatís not what happened. By applying the principles in this book, Ben rose from his tough life to one of amazing accomplishments and international renown. He learned that he had potential, he learned how to unleash it, and he did. You can too. Put the principles in this book in motion. Things wonít change overnight, but they will change. You can transform your life into one youíll love, bigger than youíve ever dreamed.
