Basically this book is just a long string of people who inspred and helped Mr Carson, and to put it bluntly: If you already know what you want, then it's a giant waste of time.

All the advice summed up is:
- Work hard
- Read books
- Never give up

So if you are looking for a book that is purely motivational then this is for you. I do however miss some practical advice on being a self-made man, so to speak.

I wanted to give 1 star, but I realize this book might be helpful to some, so 3 it is.

Ben Carsons Buch "Think Big" ist alles in allem spanned zu lesen. Allerdings verfügt es über Durststrecken, dann nämlich, wenn er sich in mehreren Kapiteln bei denen bedankt, die ihm geholfen haben seine einzigartige Karriere zu erklimmen. Das wirkt irgendwann abgedroschen. Spannender ist Carson, wenn er von seinem Leben, seinen Operationen usw. berichtet.

Noch spannender ist sein Buch "Gifted Hands" geschrieben. Dieses Buch ist eher wie eine Biographie und auf jeder Seite spannend.

Im Zweifel also "Gifted Hands" kaufen und lesen. Das ist die bessere Wahl. Viel Vergnügen.

In this book I was able to see for myself that I too could do greatness with my life, it is full of encouragement, and gives us the hope that we miss in our daily life. It is a shame that those who should read this book, are reading the local trash, and will complain how hard life is, but keep doing what they are doing. A must book for all school, instead of some other topic. Great job Ben! and thank you.

The life of Ben Carson should not have ended up as it has. His early life represented the classic characteristics of all too many of young black males. Yet, Ben and his brother achieved great things because of very special people who touched their lives. Those special people included a wonderful mother who had the courage to raise her children in a manner which would guarantee success (her definition would not be embraced by Wall Street). There were other special influences including many teachers who had the compassion to teach from the heart. There are many, many wonderful lessons to be learned from this autobiography, and any adult or young person would be blessed to read about this special man from a special family.

This is more than just another self-help book. It gives very concrete steps available to all of us for developing our potential, regardless of our station in life. The author stresses the immense value of reading. A must for all, but especially for educators and mentors.

I found Dr. Carson's book to be incredibly moving and useful in daily life. It perfectly depicts the powerful influences of our childhood and what can happen when the messeges you hear are possitive and uplifting. My wife is 3 months pregnant with my child and I intend to limit the TV time, like Dr. Carson's mother did. The books she encouraged him to read as a youngster opened up his creativity and broke down walls. I will not forget this very powerful message.

What a great book to read. I had received this book as a gift and since then I have given the book to my two sons. Everyone enjoyed the true life account of a Mother's love and devotion to her children and the inspirational story of a young man's dramatic life story. This book and "Gifted Hands" should be a 'must' read for all students entering 8th or 9th grade. An uplifting book that children and adults can relate to. I loved it.

Think Big is the most inspiring book I have ever read. I work with youth and it's a great tool for teaching them the importance of reading and learning. I've had the opportunity to meet Dr. Carson and the person is as great as the book. Kids of all ages can relate to his story and his message of thinking big. Adults will be inspired as well; inspired to read, to dream and to teach. Every teen ager in America should read this book.

Ben Carson shares his invaluable character traits that raised him from low self esteem and poverty to becoming one of the world's most renowned neurosurgeons accomplishing great things because of the mentors he chose to emmulate.

Das Buch ist eine super Motivation zu lernen, da man wirklich sehn kann wie Gott einen Menschen den alle schon abgestempelt haben gebraucht um sich zu verherrlichen.
Habe den Film gesehn,und habe daraufhin das Buch gekauft. Allen denen ich davon erzähle, vor allem von seiner Mutter, sind begeistert. IN der Jungschar in unserer Gemeinde habe ich auch von Benjamin Carson erzählt und was er gelernt hat, und es hat den Jugendlichen die Augen dafür geöffnet andere nicht zu verurteilen undselbst immer das Beste zu geben und Gott voll und ganz zu vertrauen.
Ich kann das Buch nur weiter empfehlen!
