Three Young Men Make a Promise and Fulfill a Dream
Sampson Davis and Others
A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
A remarkable story about the power of friendship.
Chosen by Essence to be among the forty most influential African Americans, the three doctors grew up in the streets of Newark, facing city life’s temptations, pitfalls, even jail. But one day these three young men made a pact. They promised each other they would all become doctors, and stick it out together through the long, difficult journey to attaining that dream. Sampson Davis, George Jenkins, and Rameck Hunt are not only friends to this day—they are all doctors.
This is a story about joining forces and beating the odds. A story about changing your life, and the lives of those you love most... together.

Excellent book! Very inspirational...
I'm not a reading type of girl but once I started reading this book, I was instantly pulled in. I had to finish it!
This book was very inspirational
The only reason I got it was for my high school summer HW. It is ok...but it's too bland and boring. The plot is way too common which makes it hard for you to feel the moments in the book. The first three chapters really wasted my time. They could have been put in 1 chapter because the 3 chapters talk about the same thing... Mom got pregnant young or mom has drug addictions, dad left, stabbings, drug dealers, blah blah blah. You basically read the whole first chapter 3 times... I get it ok? The book is indeed inspirational but it wasn't good enough to make me want to read more. In fact, for my summer HW, I got so bored out by the book that I only read the first 20 pages and did my reading assignment. I say that a book like this should at least be put for free.
