Gifted Hands Review

The book Gifted Hands is based on a true story about the life of history’s greatest surgeon, Ben Carson. Carson chose to write his autobiography in form of prose and it is ideological and easy to read unlike what some people may expect from a Medical Doctor of Carson’s standing. Being his autobiography, he touched on his early life as a child raised by a poor single mother and his struggles in Medical school.

It was not all rosy for Ben Carson as he needed encouragement from his close friends to fall in love with surgery. His amazing feat made him to describe the human brain as a miracle. His story shows that his use of the words ‘miracle’ and ‘gifted’ were rooted in deep research and painstaking hard work. Most people that have read the book attest that it is a great source of inspiration.
