Synopsis
A renowned African-American neurosurgeon offers a rich perspective on the things that matter most -- Gifted Hands, Ben Carson's successful autobiography, inspired readers through the story of an inner-city kid with poor grades and little motivation who became director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins University Hospital by the age of thirty-three. In his follow-up motivational book, Think Big, Ben shared his life philosophy and a down-to-earth strategy that anyone could follow to achieve success. Now, in The Big Picture, Dr. Carson offers readers an up-close look at a professional surgeon's life --- and his unique perspective on priorities, race, society, success, and living out a life of faith in a complex world. A busy man who must make life and death decisions every day, Ben Carson has learned about the importance of priorities. A successful and compassionate man at the top of the medical profession, he demonstrates with his life accomplishments what can be done when people live life according to solid biblical values. Noted for his groundbreaking work in the technologically complex field of modern neurosurgery, Dr. Carson offers a surprisingly simple formula for health, happiness, and living wisely. A black man who has reached the top of a white-coated world, Ben Carson offers a unique philosophy on achieving success, improving relations between the races, what medical breakthroughs mean to all of us, and why we must work for positive change in our troubled society. It may be just one man's perspective. But this noted surgeon's anecdotal, page-turning book can help us all get a better grasp on what's really important in life and how we can all make a difference.
