In our 21st-century world, we insulate ourselves with safety. We insure everything from vacations to cell phones. But in the end, everyone faces risk. Even if our choices are not dramatic or the outcome not heartbreaking, what does it mean if we back away instead of move forward? Have we so muffled our hearts and minds that we fail to reach for all that life can offer us--and all that we can offer life? As a child on the dangerous streets of Detroit, and as a surgeon in operating theaters around the world, Dr. Ben Carson has learned all about risk--he faces it on a daily basis. Out of his perilous childhood, a world-class surgeon emerged precisely because of the risks Dr. Carson was willing to take. In this book, he examines our safety-at-all-costs culture and the meaning of risk and security in our lives.--From publisher description.
