Why not use a professional narrator?
Ben Carson is a brilliant man, but....
Yes and no. I would love to have given this book a 5 out of 5, but I, as well as a few friends of mine that read this book for a college psychology class, found that the first 10 chapters could have been of the book could have been done well without. Ben Carson spends FAR too much time in the mode of autobiography writing with near to no association with the concept of the the book "Take the risk". I constantly found myself asking, "why is this book called 'take the risk' again??" There were a couple other issues I had with it as well. That being said, after chapter 10, the book finally takes off and is actually really really good! I loved chapter 14 and I love what Ben has to say about faith and religion. Also, I find myself using the B/W A method fairly frequently.
So......is the book worth reading? I would say definitely YES....but...just start on chapter 11. Haha.
I have listened to any others
Ben Carson himself of course
Absolutely. The B/W A method, it furthered my perspective on being outgoing as always being worth it and definitely inspired me in prosocial behaviors, and also there were religious and faith aspects that have given me new perspectives and further knowledge toward bettering my life and the lives of others.
