"Becoming Dr.Q," is a phenomenal book that is able to portray the journey many immigrants have to take to become respected individuals in society. Quinones, now an internationally renowned neurosurgeon, was able to pour all his feelings and thoughts into the pages of a book, grabbing the attention of those who want to read about persistence and hard work. The purpose of this book was to not only thank the family and friends that allowed Dr.Q to get to where he is in life today, but to describe the hardships that come with starting a new life in a foreign country with little to no resources. While Quinones has written various other books on more in-depth science and neurosurgery topics, this one highlights the journey he took starting with crossing the fence, ending with getting married, having kids, and being able to solve the kaliman maneuver. Readers can take numerous ideas and morals from "Becoming Dr.Q," but the principal one is to never give up. Though generic, to succeed in anything, it's important to keep a positive mindset and look ahead at all times. I recommend this book to anyone who needs a motivational boost or to anyone taking a big next step.
