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 loved the way Eric told his story. It was raw, real and inspirational. I loved how he he didn't hold back exposing his vulnerable moments nor his prideful moments. I loved seeing him grow as a christian, a husband, a father and a son through his own words.
I'm definitely buying this book for my sons and nephews. It's a must read!!
Great book. The lesson I pulled from this book is that anything is possible through hard work and determination. Anything. A lot of books I listen to it notice myself having to take a lot of breaks because I start losing focus and interest. This book had me interested and into what was being talked about the whole time. Really good book in my opinion.
really really good

ET is a great story teller! he makes you wanna be somebody, do something, help someone. A compelling and engaging personality and speaker. it was a joy to listen to him talk about his life.
"What you would expect from your boy ET"
Close your eyes and listen, the story is told so well and in so much detail that you are taken on a journey.
Brilliantly inspiring, funny and interesting. I could listen to ET speak all day long!
This audiobook is incredibly inspiring & chuck full of useful mindset a crucial for success in any endeavour! Definitely worth the investment of time, effort, energy.
Not much to say really apart from wow very inspiring thank you ET I'm glade I found your book.
"Successfully encouraging and motivational!"
The energy that comes from Eric Thomas narrating this book is great!
I loved the interesting, inspirational and mind opening quotes that are included.
There were some 'cringe' moments for me but on the whole - excellent delivery.
I wish I could speak to this man.....
Good job E. T!
Incredible life changing experience story. Well narrated and to the core material, truly inspiring. I Would strongly recommend to anyone
"Great Values and Principles to live by"
I love the way Eric has made the book around his life and related it to his successes and failures... by applying what he had learned from these life events. He then translates this in simple to understand methods, and again relates it to his life. This makes it easier to relate this to my own life the fact that he's given a example makes the learning experiences more visual.
I have taken note of the principles and values and going to live by them as I work on my own dreams and success.
Great performances by both.
I liked Eric's tone and drama that he added to make it real and in the moment as if it was happening right then.
"Face your fears" or "The push towards Greatness"
This story of sheer inspiration has filled me with the tools to motivate myself even when I feel like I'm all out of trying. Eric has been through a tough journey to greatness, thanks for sharing it with me. I wish I could meet you personally.
I love books like these with a real story and complex personality. It is in my top 10.
It is Erics life story and he is the main character in this book. He has had many struggles in his life, but it is his strength and persistence that has brought him success.
Eric tells his own story, it feels much more immersive and real. I cannot imagine anyone else telling this story with such a great passion.
Absolutely, it is so immersive that you want to know the whole story and where it has taken the character.
It is relatively short book in comparison with others, but it is a real example where hard work brings amazing success to a person with a very sad background a many struggles.
"ET Epic Journey"
Eric drew from very personal experiences to give reader the best examples of how to structure personal growth
The Shadow of The Wind - Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Anyone has the ability to achieve greatness
Having listened to Eric previously it gave a realistic depth to the book, it was like he was sat next to me talking.
When Eric realised that investing in himself would prove to be the greatest investment of his life.
Highly reccommeded to all
Once people listen to this book they can follow up with the YouTube videos, then they can understand where his passion comes from... The heart!!! Enough said. :)
Eric of course... And bob.
