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.

Definitely. New information and insights can be gained when we review material with a new perspective.
Hearing ET tell his own stories in his voice adds a personal touch and really helped me to receive the information. The audiobook excels, with occasional sound effects and music that accentuate the message rather than distract.
The Secret to Success is an excellent work by Dr. Eric Thomas. He tells his story from struggling teen in a dysfunctional home to college graduate and successful speaker. He provides amazing insights and incredible inspiration to those seeking their purpose in life and looking for the secret to success.

I didn't realise this book would be an auto-biography of sorts and so wasn't expecting it. After a few chapters I got into the flow and thoroughly enjoyed the book.
brilliant book learnt a lot about life and how to deal with real life situations
One of the worst books I've bought on Audible! I am a fan of Eric Thomas, but this book didn't encapsulate me, was very disappointed.
Enjoy the man's speeches better that his book. I just didn't feel it, it's very poorly organised and the ideas are all over the place! Perhaps he will get better with the second book.
I thought it wouldn't be all that but its great and gives you a sight in life
