it was amazing

A very inspirational story of a young man's transformation from migrant farm worker with only a few words of English, through community college, university, medical school, to world-renowned brain surgeon and researcher into the causes and cures of brain cancer. He learned to shake off the sneers and defamation of those who did not think that a "lazy" Mexican could become anything worthwhile and now heads his own research lab where breakthroughs are being made in knowledge of the human brain, ultimately leading to a cure. Eloquent, fascinating, personal -- I highly recommend this book, especially to anyone who is fighting great odds in following her or his dream.
