It's not really a story so much as a short biography of the life of an extremely dedicated, determined, and gifted surgeon. My father had the pleasure of passing him in the halls at medical school. This inspirational genius follows in the footsteps of many previous black artists who pass their gifts to the next generation. His epic portrayal of the stereotypical 'black' childhood to his dramatic and intimate work as a surgeon and director of the Johns Hopkins Hospital.

I really enjoyed this book, because it was very informative and inspirational. He gave a lot of insight form his life, and amounted to a great thing in his career. He is a hero for us all to look up to, and one to be admired forever.
