Books are true levelers. They give to all, who will faithfully use them, the society, the spiritual presence, of the best and greatest of our race. Reading activates and exercise the mind. Reading forces the mind to discriminate. From the beginning, readers have to recognize letters printed on the page, make them into words, the words into sentences, and the sentences into concepts. Reading pushes us to use our imagination and makes us more creatively inclined.
When books are opened, we discover that we have wings. More things are wrought by prayer Than this world dreams of. Humility is not groveling and telling everyone how worthless we are — humility is knowing who we are and what God is doing and has done in our lives. I have worked out a simple formula for humility.
God created this universe, including us, and 2. God shows that He is much more powerful than we are by what He does and has done in our world, and 3.
Remaining a victim of circumstance is a state of being that we choose, a choice that - allows us to blame other people - lets us blame circumstances - permits us to avoid responsibility for our lives - encourages us to feel sorry for ourselves, and - guarantees that we will stay victims. No one has to be a victim!
To some, success in life means putting more into life than we take out. I think of success as reaching beyond ourselves and helping other people in specific ways. View all 4 comments. Jul 06, Glenn rated it it was ok. I was introduced to this book by a junior high school teacher who was planning to use it in her classes.
Supposedly it was about a successful pediatric neurosurgeon giving accolades to people who helped him develop himself.
That attracted me since I also feel such intense gratitude for so many, some that I am aware of, and some that I never realized were there. I will say he delivers that, and also provides some very good ideas about how to get on track and stay on track for "success".
I rated t I was introduced to this book by a junior high school teacher who was planning to use it in her classes. I rated the book lower because there is a little too much about Ben Carson in the book for me, and a few too many references to the times he "said a little prayer and his patient miraculously and immediately turned for the better". I just felt like he, not infrequently, plugged his own accomplishments sort of gratuitously.
And I think there have to be some examples not mentioned when he "said a little prayer" and the patient went on to a tragic outcome. Not to overstate that, though, and I have recommended the book to several people--especially to parents of preteens who might be inspired by what he has to say.
It is a fairly well-written book, and easy to read. Jul 01, Jared Della Rocca rated it did not like it Shelves: By all means you may judge this book by its cover, because your judgement will be spot on. I mean, even being ghostwritten, this book was just really not good. From the abrupt shift of chapters - starting with Ben Carson, then weirdly switching to his Mom writing a chapter or two - then back to Ben Carson, it never really had a timeline to it.
It was like Ben Carson really wanted to emphasize how other people and God helped him get where he was, but never really considered the best way to transl By all means you may judge this book by its cover, because your judgement will be spot on.
It was like Ben Carson really wanted to emphasize how other people and God helped him get where he was, but never really considered the best way to translate that, other than repeating it constantly every other paragraph. Not worth the time at all.
Jul 03, Tyler Barker rated it it was amazing. Ben Carson is a truly inspiring man. He writes his personal story from the inner city and underachieving school life to the top of the neuroscience medicine. He gives all the glory to God and includes wonderful scriptures to live by. He really gets you thinking bigger and gives you a big push to dream big! Apr 26, Hali rated it really liked it. It was really inspiring to read this book. It was refreshing to read about an elite doctor who also gave credit to others he worked with down to the front office staff and his teachers.
He overcame a lot of adversity by accepting personal responsibility and relying on his faith. Aug 23, Cynthia rated it it was amazing. The way that the book is written really draws the reader in because Dr. Carson uses real life stories to help explain the major points that he is wanting to make. This is a very good book and I recommend it to be read by anyone and everyone.
Jun 04, Kath rated it liked it. La vida de Ben Carson es realmente inspiradora, pero este libro no me llego, los primeros tres capitulos realmente me motivaron, pero de ahi en adelante se me hizo muy tedioso, pienso que no iba directamente al punto.
May 18, Linda rated it really liked it. An excellent book with an important message. But if anyone ever needed a co-author, it's Dr. Carsonhe's a man of many gifts and talents, but writing isn't one of them. I see he had a co-author; he needs a different one.

Think Big: Unleashing Your Potential for Excellence
What can I say. The writer is so humble and truthful about his medical experiences and himself. Love it.
May 15, C. It is a teacher of life. This book had a profound impact on my drive and pursuits in higher education at a very pivotal time in my life Oct 03, Samuel Adetiran rated it it was amazing. This exceptional and very inspiring book shows how anyone can aim for excellence and impact in life by thinking big. Every man is limited only by the way he thinks. It is a story of positive change catalysed by influence through books and people.
It will sure challenge you to be the best you you can be. Apr 10, Travis Marsh rated it really liked it.
Ben Carson is a very successful man and a self-made man, he tells the story of his family and him overcoming poverty through the love of reading and the quest for knowledge. Learning about himself as a learner his story about self-discovery is absolutely fascinating.
He went from being the bottom of his class in Middle School to Valedictorian of his High School class.
The story about his childhood is one of my favorite parts of this book. This a great book, but like all great books, it has some parts that are struggling to read if you are not familiar with the medical field.
It has some complicated terms and will have some readers who are not familiar with medical terminology scratching their head. I would recommend this book to anyone who has dreams of overcoming an obstacle and letting their potential unleashed.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone entering the medical and science fields. Overall this is a great book, and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Ceea ce ne place cel mai mult ne va orienta viitorul.
Mar 29, Rebecca rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: All people on this planet. Aceasta carte intradevar e influentabila. Am descoperit in paginile ei o uimitoare capodopera a tipului de viata pe care-o putem trai pe acest pamant. Carson l-a format pentru a-si accentua opinia sa referitoare a felul nostru de a gandi si la posibilitatile pe care noi oamenii putem avea deaface cu. Increderea si credinta in El ne aseaza calea catre succes inevitabil, devenind apoi oameni detinatori ai cheii catre invingerea mandriei, urii, necunostintei, intr-un cuvant a tuturor viciilor predispuse sa ne atace constant.
Va urez tuturor celor care nu ati citit-o pana acum lectura placuta, iar celor care sunteti familiarizati cu aceasta creatie,puneti in aplicare "Think Big", caci va garantez ca nu veti regreta! Nov 24, Alex Timberman rated it it was amazing Shelves: He grew up poor as an African American raised by a single mother.

She encouraged him to make weekly book reports and told him he could always do anything better than anyone else, even when he was one of the wor He grew up poor as an African American raised by a single mother. She encouraged him to make weekly book reports and told him he could always do anything better than anyone else, even when he was one of the worst students in his 5th grade class.
She believed in him and that made Ben believe in himself. Ben Carson tells of this story and on how early on, he fell in love with reading.
It was as if he discovered a secret. He just read everything of interest and gained a lot of knowledge. After he fell in love with reading, the rest was history. Along his journey, he became a great student giving God all the credit. Eventually, he was able to use his talent in hand coordination and in being able to see in three dimensions to become a great neurosurgeon who has helped countless families as the doctor of last resort.
In Think Big, he provides honest wisdom on life that is sure to help anyone who has come from a minority background, or anyone else for that matter, to help them achieve great things. If he was able to become that successful, all others from humble backgrounds could also do a bit better.

This is highly encouraged reading for poor urban youth, who have limitless potential to use their mind and imagination to create a better life for themselves and their families. At first the slow pace of the book and the almost countless persons the Doctor mentions somewhat stressed me out but then the longer I kept at reading the easier and more familiar I got to like the Doctor's style of writing The books is of the kinds that grows on you with time and the self-help part is impressively both elaborated and practical and it's pretty good to find a God fearing well esteemed and repected individual to present such a wonderful work of insight rather than the new age crap material on the same subject.

He would credit, for his success, these things plus hard work and risk. His definition of success, however, is not be determined by dollars or titles. He suggests finding what you are talented in and doing it well--reading everything you can in that area.
I found this book inspiring and hope-full. I-Insight: -learn from other peoples mistakes, benefits from them and not repeating the same mistakes. N-nice: -be nice to people, be friendly, helpful, socialize.
