Take the Risk – Learning to Identify, Choose and Live with Acceptable Risk by Ben Carson, MD with Gregg Lewis.
This is the fourth book that Dr. Ben Carson has authored. Take the Risk guides the reader through an examination of risk and shares personal stories along the way.
“In our risk-avoidance culture, we place a high premium on safety. We insure our vacations. We check crash tests on cars. We extend the warranties on our appliances. But by insulating ourselves from the unknown – the risks of life – we miss the great adventure of living our lives to their full potential.
Ben Carson spent his childhood as an at-risk child on the streets of Detroit, and today he takes daily risks in performing complex surgeries on the brain and the spinal cord. Now, offering inspiring personal examples, Dr. Carson invites us to embrace risk in our own lives. From a man whose life dramatically portrays the connection between great risks and greater successes, here are insights that will help you dispel your fear of risk so you can dream big, aim high, move with confidence, and reap rewards you’ve never imagined.”
