In Think Big, which emanates from the last chapter of his best-selling Gifted Hands, Dr. Ben Carson prescribes his personal formula for success. And who could better advise than one who transformed his own life from that of being a ghetto kid with problems in school to becoming the most celebrated pediatric neurosurgeon in the world? With an acrostic, Dr. Carson spells out his philosophy of living: T -Talents/time: Recognize as gifts from God H -Hope for good things and be honest I -insight from people and good books N -Be nice to all people K -Knowledge: Recognize as they key to living B -Books: Read them actively I -In-depth learning skills: Develop them G -God: Never get too big for Him -- Think Big does not offer pat answers, or promise a life of ease, but it does show how a person should view problems, evaluate them, react to them, and eventually overcome them. The philosophy in Think Big can be applied by all individuals to their own lives and help them to make the most of the gifts that God has given them.

I really enjoyed reading this book and many of the concepts help quite a lot , especially do your best and let god do the rest.
This book is well worth the 643 page read. It is a gift from God to me. Think Big gives me hope even now at 64 yrs. old, I can help others by reading, in depth studying and especially with God's help. Enjoy It!
This was such a good common sense book. It was the way children used to be reared. I am so glad you had a wonderful mean mother like my husband and I.
