    Hardcover. Condition: Very good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. First Printing [Stated]. 253, [3] pages. Occasional footnotes. Ink notation on fep. DJ has some wear and soiling. Benjamin Solomon Carson Sr. (born September 18, 1951) is an American neurosurgeon, author, and politician who is the 17th and current United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, under the Trump Administration. Prior to his cabinet position, he was a candidate for President of the United States in the Republican primaries in 2016. Born in Detroit, Michigan, and a graduate of Yale University and the University of Michigan Medical School, Carson has authored numerous books on his medical career and political stances. He was the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Maryland from 1984 until his retirement in 2013. As a pioneer in neurosurgery, Carson's achievements include performing the only successful separation of conjoined twins joined at the back of the head, pioneering the first successful neurosurgical procedure on a fetus inside the womb, performing the first completely successful separation of type-2 vertical craniopagus twins, developing new methods to treat brain-stem tumors, and reviving hemispherectomy techniques for controlling seizures. He became the youngest chief of pediatric neurosurgery in the country at age 33. He has received more than 60 honorary doctorate degrees, dozens of national merit citations, and written over 100 neurosurgical publications. In 2008, he was bestowed the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian award in the United States. This book is for you if your life is a series of shattered dreams. This book is for you if you have no dreams at all. It s for you if you ve bought the lie that you ll never amount to anything. That s not true. Your life is BIG far bigger than you've imagined. Inside these pages lie the keys to recognizing the full potential of your life. You won t necessarily become a millionaire, but you will attain a life that is rewarding, significant, and more fruitful than you ever thought possible. The author of this book knows about hardship. Ben Carson grew up in inner-city Detroit. His mother was illiterate. His father had left the family. His grade-school classmates considered Ben stupid. He struggled with a violent temper. In every respect, Ben s harsh circumstances seemed only to point to a harsher future and a bad end. But that s not what happened. By applying the principles in this book, Ben rose from his tough life to one of amazing accomplishments and international renown. He learned that he had potential, he learned how to unleash it, and he did. You can too. Put the principles in this book in motion. Things won t change overnight, but they will change. You can transform your life into one you ll love, bigger than you ve ever dreamed.".

    Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. Fine condition textured beige boards with gold spine lettering, contained in a fine condition color photographic dust jacket. Includes Dedication; Preliminary Page Quote by E.A. Robinson and Introduction. Signed and inscribed on the blank first front free endpaper in black pen by Dr. Ben Carson. "In Think Big, which emanates from the last chapter of his bestselling Gifted AHnds, 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 the key to living; B - Books: Read them actively; I - In-depth learning skills: Develop them; G - God: Never get too big for Him. Admittedly 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." - from the inner front jacket flap.
