Manos prodigiosas por y acerca de Ben Carson, Doctor en Medicina, es el relato inspirador de un chiquillo de un barrio difícil, con bajas calificaciones y poca motivación, que a los treinta y tres años llegó a ser director de neurocirugía pediátrica del Hospital de la Universidad John Hopkins. Manos prodigiosas lo trasladará a la sala de operaciones para presenciar cirugías que aparecieron en los titulares por todo el mundo, y a la mente privada del médico compasivo y temeroso de Dios que vive para ayudar a otros. En 1987, el Dr. Carson obtuvo un reconocimiento mundial por su participación en la primera separación exitosa de siameses unidos por la parte trasera de su cabeza; una operación en extremo compleja y delicada que llevó cinco meses de planificación y veintidós horas de cirugía, incluyendo un plan quirúrgico que Carson ayudó a iniciar. Manos prodigiosas revela a un hombre humilde, decente, compasivo, valeroso y sensible que sirve como modelo ejemplar para los jóvenes (y todos los demás) que necesitan estímulo para intentar lo que parece imposible y sobresalir en lo que sea que intenten. El Dr. Carson también describe el papel clave que su madre, de gran inteligencia aunque relativamente sin mayor educación, desempeñó en su metamorfosis de un adolescente de gueto y sin motivación a uno de los neurocirujanos más respetados del mundo




Gifted Hands, by and about Ben Carson, M.D., is the inspiring story of an inner-city kid with poor grades and little motivation, who, at age thirty-three, became director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins University Hospital. Gifted Hands will take you into the operating room to witness surgeries that made headlines around the world, and into the private mind of a compassionate, God-fearing physician who lives to help others. In 1987, Dr. Carson gained worldwide recognition for his part in the first successful separation of Siamese twins joined at the back of the head —an extremely complex and delicate operation that took five months of planning and twenty-two hours of actual surgery, involving a surgical plan that Carson helped initiate. Gifted Hands reveals a man with humility, decency, compassion, courage, and sensitivity who serves as a role model for young people (and everyone else) in need of encouragement to attempt the seemingly impossible and to excel in whatever they attempt. Dr. Carson also describes the key role that his highly intelligent, though relatively uneducated mother played in his metamorphosis from an unmotivated ghetto youngster into one of the most respected neurosurgeons in the world.
