Janet and Geoff Benge. Young Ben Carson had a tough start in life. His mother’s motto was to always do your best, and she taught Ben and his brother that reading books was the way to learn. Through some difficult circumstances as a teen, Ben had to face himself. He cried out to God and found help for dealing with his anger. With self-disciplined study, he became enthused with the functioning of the brain and by the age of thirty-three, he became the pediatric neurosurgery chief at the world-famous Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. He realized his need of God’s help with performing many delicate surgeries and would give Him credit for his high success rate. 192 pages; paper; Emerald Books.
