Audie Award Finalist, Personal Development, 2014
Reknowned speaker, educator, author, activist and minister, 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 and 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, has helped thousands of youth nationwide become peak performers academically, spiritually and personally.
Eric has electrified audiences ranging from Fortune 500 companies to urban educators, collegiate athletic programs and inner-city youth development agencies with the message of his own life's struggles and the principles, insights and strategies he used to overcome them. Eric is no stranger to the ills that plague our communities as he was born in Chicago, IL and raised on the streets of Detroit, MI. His childhood and adolescent years were difficult, and his life struggles and personal identity issues were intensified because like so many, he did not establish a relationship with his biological father until his early thirties.

I love a GOOD BOOK
This is my first Audio Book and I loved it so, the sound is crisp and clear, I actually stayed in my car listening to my Iphone for an half hour before I decided to get out.... lol.
What can I say about Eric Thomas, HE ROCKS! HE IS INSPIRING! HE SPEAKS THE UNADULTERATED TRUTH! As a youth motivator, he truly inspires me to continue to reach out to our youth, and encourage them to be the BEST OF THE BEST!
Eric Thomas is very narrative and has compassion in his voice as he reads
This is my first time.
To succeed as bad as I want to BREATH!!!
This is one book that should be in your library.... GET IT TODAY!
It was the life story of the author, I was looking for for a non fictional book to read to help myself.
As far as Non-fiction listening goes, this is as good as it gets. Great personal life story, great principles that anyone can apply and truly inspiring all the way around.
It's a compelling story with a lot of inspiration.
I like the fact that the author is the actual narrator. Given the fact he is a motivational speaker, he speaks with enthusiasm and inspiration.
Yes, definitely. It is one of the books where you would listen to when you feel hopeless or really down.
The way Eric Thomas narrated the story just adds something special to the whole book. Especially since it is from his own experiences, he made me feel closer to him. As for Charles Arrington, the way he narrated the story is really different from Eric Thomas. He is more clear and precise.
Success is not a destination. Success is a journey.
It should go straight to the point. Most of the he talks on and on about single issue.
No, I feel like you paying for a couple of quotes, not the motivation factor you are looking for.
No - its not that great!
Poor quality material
This story is nothing special. Its about a guy who is a normal kid, runs away from home, finds people to look after him and then after 15 years gets a MS degree. Its not exactly mind blowing. There's people out there with disabilities who go on to defy doctors... whats so special about this story? Quoting people like Kanye West really damages the integrity of the book. If you are a kid growing up in the projects this book maybe worth reading. Otherwise, avoid!!
If it actually contained, tools, for success, I like tony robbins, and brain tracy books, because they always give you at least one tip worth keeping or remembering.
Les Brown, or some other motivational speaker, whose books are more reasonably priced, or maybe a business book
Charles was unnecessary, ET, is usually more passionate, but his voice over definitely helped the book
disappointment, it was more of an autobiography filled with stuff you know from his youtube videos
If your a fan of ET buy the book, but if your looking to be inspired, or for tools to help your see things differently, watch him on youtube
A Gift needed
7 Habits of Highly Effective People
I believe sheer honesty on life and what is needed to be successful
I would love to see him tour in Philadelphia book stores, schools and radio shows

I would recommend this book to anyone looking to improve themselves
