    • We popped this CD into our car player for our daily commute and were amazed at the details of the life of a man we thought we knew so much about. It is absolutely amazing how this man used his God-given mind and talents to discover so much in the created world around him. He started each morning with a walk outside, which always led him further in his life of gratitude to God and into delightful discoveries along the way. I am ashamed of every small-minded bigot who bullied, threatened and oppre [...]

    • Este libro es sencillamente digno de admiración. La historia de George es fascinante y la narración muy atrapante. Siento un gran respeto y una gran admiración por el doctor George Washington Carver (y no puedo creer que no había escuchado su nombre antes). Sin duda lo recomiendo a todo el mundo que busque una figura que imitar.
