    What made the experience of listening to Biology: The Science of Life the most enjoyable?

    very very interesting, next year I'm starting to study biology in University,
    and I wanted a good background for it.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    36 half an hour lectures is not possible,
    but it was very catching and intresting


    Any additional comments?

    Eric Thomas is rising to national prominence by delivering a high energy message that tells youth through first hand experience how to live up to their full potential and greatness and by breaking the cycles of crime, hopelessness and despair that many face daily. Known for his engagingly personal approach, his messages are both dynamic & inspiring. When coupled with his own cycle-breaking experience, his blunt essays on reality and remarkable ability to reach even the most jaded of minds.
