Publisher's Summary

Dr. Ben Carson's Gifted Hands is the inspiring autobiography of an inner-city kid with poor grades and little motivation who grew up to become one of the world's most renowned and important surgeons.At the young age of 33, Dr. Carson was named the director of pediatric neurosurgery at the prestigious Johns Hopkins University Hospital, and this compassionate, God-fearing physician has devoted his life to giving dying children a second chance at life.
In 1987, Dr. Carson gained international recognition for his role in the first successful separation of Siamese twins joined at the back of the head, a dangerous and complex procedure that took five months of planning and 22 hours of actual surgery.
Gifted Hands is a fascinating, remarkable story that takes listeners inside the operating rooms where Dr. Carson made medical history, as well as into the private mind of a true Christian role model who beat the odds to achieve greatness.


What the Critics Say

"One of Dr. Carson's greatest achievements is his incredible skill in the operating room. But of equal value is the time he spends talking to kids, teaching them." (Jesse Jackson)
"Benjamin Carson is already a legend." (Dr. Timothy Johnson, ABC News)
