Throughout his life, renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Benjamin Carson has needed to overcome many obstacles: his father leaving the family, being considered stupid by his classmates in grade school, growing up in inner-city Detroit, and having a violent temper. But Dr. Carson didn't let his circumstances control him and instead discovered eight principles that helped shape his future... Dr. Carson unpacks the eight important parts of Thinking Big: Talent, Honesty, Insight, being Nice, Knowledge, Books, In-Depth learning, and God, and presents the stories of people who demonstrated those things in his life. By applying the idea of THINK BIG to your life, and by looking at those around you as well, you too can overcome obstacles and work toward achieving your dreams

Just another bullshit book from a Trump bullshitter

Too bad Carson's brain is asleep at the wheel.

This book is easy to understand and written in distinct sections, all describing a time or aspect of Carson's life that were important to him or made an impact on the successful doctor and politician he is today. His descriptions of his hard work and smart decisions is inspirational and an excellent example of how determination can take you out of difficult circumstances and open up a whole new world of opportunity. Definitely recommend this book!

This is a really great book!

After reading Carson's autobiography Gifted Hands and watching the movie, I was excited to read more of his books. His story inspires me to do something amazing with my life. He has great, great wisdom that he decided to share in this book. I totally recommend it!
