    Dr. Ben Carson, was the first Doctor in the world, to seperate Siamese Twins.
    He started as a kid without a father, and with a mother who workd three jobs, to pay the bills.
    Ben was having problems in school, and his Mom, who had only a third grade education, and couldn't read, told her two sons, that they had to read a book a week, and write a book report, and then give it to her to read; but they didn't know she couldn't read.
    Ben started reading history and archaeology books, and while in school, he was able to answer all the teachers questions; and went from dumb Benny, to the most knowledgeable person in class.
    Before Ben performed any operation, he would Pray to God, and have his whole team be all Christians, who also prayed before surgeries.
    Dr. Carson soon, at around 35 years old, seperated twins, in Africa, a well as other countries; from his position as Head of Pediatriac Neurosurgery, at John's-Hopkins Medical Clinic.
    He is now running for a position in the Us Congress.
    He is a Christian and world renowned Authority on Seperating Siamese Twins.

    Just in the past year have I become aware of Ben Carson and have been fascinated with his wisdom and his life history. Even as he gives a first hand account of his many accomplishments, I don't hear pride, but a humility for what God has allowed and enabled him to do in his life. Though he worked hard and studied long, it was his faith in God that brought him to the successful person he is today. I have passed my copy along to my sister.

    This book should be a must read in every school/homeschool in America. Truly inspirational. Dr. Carson speaks in his book as if he were talking directly to you. His humble personality shines through in every page and keeps you engaged till the end. Easy to read and understand. My 12 now 13 year old loved the book and has been motivated to learn as Mr. Carson learned leaving no stone unturned. Thank you Dr. Carson for being such an incredible role model and sharing your story.

    Ben Carson and his brother grow up fatherless (earthly). Their mom is working 2-3 jobs so is also absent much of the time. Their upbringing is very low economic standards. Mrs Carson emphasizes to her sons how they can do better. With God, there is nothing they can't do, no matter the circumstances. Both sons end up hearing Mom's message, accepting God's love and streching to do the absolute best they can.

    I had read the book "Gifted Hands", over 15 years ago, and several weeks ago I was so honored to hear Dr. Carson speak. I ordered several books - some to keep and some to give away to other members of the family who had been there. He is a truly gifted Doctor with an awesome attitude about working hard to make your dreams and your calling come true, no matter what your cirmstances have been in your life.
