As an Audiobook this book fails, not due to the content (that is great) but due to the very poor narration by its author. It's very hard to stay with the narrator as it feels like a race to see who falls asleep first, the narrator or the listener. It's a real shame that a professional narrator wasn't used to bring the great content across.

I ASK MYSELF HIS 4 QUESTIONS
THIS BOOK HAS HELPED GIVE ME CONFIDENCE TO RISK FOLLOWING PURPOSE GORY LIFE!
I've never read a Ben Carson book before, but saw this book featured on C-SPAN's book TV. I thought I would give it a shot. I was a little disappointed. It was Ben Carson retelling many of his experiences, which are no doubt interesting, but it seemed a stretch to talk about them in light of risk. If you want to read about the author's experiences, this is a good book, but if you want a book talking about risk, look elsewere.
I have been making life decision lately what a blessing this book was.
BW risk assessment tool really works
Yes, absolutely. I run long distances and love listening to books rather than music most of the time. I'm amazed at how Dr. Carson started to realize at such a young age that he had anger issues and began developing the ability to harness that energy for more positive results. Took me until my late 20s. Don't run for political office Dr. Carson, politics is for hacks and you are much more valuable to nation in the private sector.
An American Son
A subtle emotion.
Made me want to work even harder at what I do.
The only thing that could be cleaned up is that the volume changes throughout the presentation.
Dr. Carson's protocol for risk assessment has helped me make smarter decisions with less anxiety.
Dr. Carson has so inspired me that every time I read one of his books I find myself accomplishing things that I thought I could not do.
He has a calming voice and pleasant voice. This is a case in which the author should always read his own books.
Wisdom of Solomon
I agree that Dr. Carson is not a professional voice actor or reader, but I enjoyed this audiobook in spite of that face. Maybe even because of it. The content of this book is mostly great (I think the author gets a little preachy at the end) but it's still good stuff.
It's also personal stuff. I think that's why the lack of a professional reader is okay. Dr. Carson is telling you about HIS life and HIS experiences in HIS words with HIS voice. Check out the sample provided by Audible and see what you think.
Overall, this is a good book.
