A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

A remarkable story about the power of friendship.


Chosen by Essence to be among the forty most influential African Americans, the three doctors grew up in the streets of Newark, facing city life’s temptations, pitfalls, even jail. But one day these three young men made a pact. They promised each other they would all become doctors, and stick it out together through the long, difficult journey to attaining that dream. Sampson Davis, George Jenkins, and Rameck Hunt are not only friends to this day—they are all doctors.
This is a story about joining forces and beating the odds. A story about changing your life, and the lives of those you love most... together.

Great Book

Almost brought me to tears. The authors vividly take the reader into their lives exposing the good, bad and ugly. Their constant struggles: financially, socially and emotionally to reach their dream of becoming doctors. I’d recommend this book to anyone.

Unrelatable but Decent

I feel selfish for saying im a privlidged highschooler who was born in a middle class home. The purpose of a book is to be able to relate with the characters which I was unable to not because I'm who I am but how the characters were made out (yes I know it's non-fiction). I couldn't focus on a lot because they tried to make us relate to situations I've never been or ever will be in. Though I found the whole highschool and college part of it entertaining, I moaned when it went to some "I did a crime, oops how bad of me" scene. It's just constant "oh I was lucky here, oh I was lucky there" which gives a freshman like me the wrong ideas of what highschool should be like. I'll cut some slack since it was the 80's but really I got tired of the whole "gang violence was terrible" by pg. 2
Really I give it more a 1.5 out of 5 stars but 2 was the only option.
