Book Review – George Washington Carver – John Perry

This book is part of the Close Encounters of the Christian Kind written by John Perry.

Carver is known for his research in discovering many uses for the peanut. Reading this book uncovered a whole other side to what was a very complex individual. We get to accompany the writer on an adventure into Carver’s life and accomplishments. Perry has an incredible knack of drawing you in and making the pages come alive, he has an easy writing style and language that almost makes you feel you are personally getting to know Carver.

Carver’s thirst for knowledge is admirable, not being content in following one field he became expert in a number of disciplines, not allowing his circumstances to define him or discourage him, he made a path for himself, was generous with his time and instilled hope in all who heard him speak, with a view that ‘Any man could start with nothing and achieve great things’.

I would definitely recommend reading this book, it’s not only informative but is great look at where courage, discipline, focus and determination can take you!
