    Story
    (92)

    In 1987, Dr. Benjamin Carson gained worldwide recognition for his part in the first successful separation of Siamese twins joined at the back of the head. The extremely complex and delicate operation, five months in the planning and twenty-two hours in the execution, involved a surgical plan that Carson helped initiate. Carson pioneered again in a rare procedure known as hemispherectomy, giving children without hope a second chance at life through a daring operation in which he literally removed one half of their brain.

    If you could sum up Gifted Hands in three words, what would they be?

    Gifted Hands is a very inspiring book, I could not put my earphones down. I was in tears at certain times. His faith is something out of this world. The narrator was excellent, he kept me glued.
    I have just ordered a paperback version and DVD for home library. kids need to read his story while they are still young.


    What other book might you compare Gifted Hands to and why?

    Monk who sold his Ferrari. Both are stories with soul.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Too many:
    his anger chapter
    the tumor guy
    the twins
    the haux exam


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Once I finally concentrated I wanted to finish it one day but hey one has to sleep but I finished it in less than 24 hours.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a must have for every household, school, library, teachers, perfect gift
