Book Title: Think Big: Unleashing your potential for excellence

Author: Ben Carson

Book Description:

This book is filled with many simple, yet inspirational, life lessons. Written by Ben Carson, who is perhaps America's most celebrated neurosurgeon, it helps readers understand the importance of dreaming, knowledge, and faith in God, among other things. It uses real-life examples to show how ordinary people can succeed against the odds. Arguably the best of these is that of Carson himself. As a young African-American boy, who had significant academic challenges, Carson used these principles to start a transformation process that saw him graduate with exceptional grades and later attend the country’s best academic institutions.
