Life Changing Jun 27, 2006
I read this book when encountering the crossroads of my own limited mindset. However, upon reading about Dr. Carson's life and philosophy I was drawn to this book and it has definitely been a catalyst in my personal and spiritual development. It's a small price to pay for something that can really help you...if you need it. Break out of that small mindset and get out there and do your best...then let God do the rest, as Dr. Carson says!
Recommended reading for students Apr 26, 2006
Since discovering the first printing of Dr. Carson's THINK BIG and GIFTED HANDS, I have been of the strong opinion that either or both should actually be required reading for middle school and high school students. I remember being forced to read Bulfinch's Mythology, The Scarlet Letter, and other really unhelpful books, to delve into them and learn everything about them--how does that help pre-teens and teens, who are starting to question who they are and where they belong in life? Those books were useless. But Dr. Carson has MANY real answers for us all, and I believe that if everyone read his books, there would be a lot less negativity in the world, and much more kindness, caring, and a sense of worth and purpose for every individual, and isn't that what we're all really looking for?
Awesome Apr 10, 2006
This book is awesome. Very good read. Very moving. Very real. Someone you wish you could meet. The book is just awesome to see a young man come from tenements to tops. I pray he continues to do a service to all people. Get the book and THINK BIG.
