I read "Gifted Hands" in a time when I was undecisive about my future life. I had lost all my perspective, motivation, and joy in going to school and learning new things. I felt worthless and dumb because I messed up a lot of exams due to the lack of motivation and ambition. I had never heard of Dr.Carson before, and I thought, "Great, another fine man who tells about how much God can use only superbrains in this world!" All the more I was suprised to read Dr.Carson's biography which was totally opposite of what I had expected. I started to believe in myself again because I learned that becoming a success in this world isn't due to mere smartness, but a result of the willingness to be changed by God plus hard work and sometimes even taking on pains. I learned to apply the "Think Big" principle in my personal life, and it has tremendously changed my way of living and thinking. I'll be studying psychology soon, and I know it wouldn't have been possible without the guidelines which Dr.Carson has presented me in "Gifted Hands"!
