Publisher's Summary

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.

    "This will go down as one of the "GOAT'S"."

    ET. Story is amazing. This book made me feel like I was going through life with him. The lesson I took away from this is if you keep doing the right things. Great things are bound to come.

    "Only I have my gift"

    I like the way the book was laid out chronologically. It allows the reader to follow along as if they are part of the story. My greatest Takeaway is that only I have my gift. And I would be doing the world in injustice by keeping it from them. Thank you for sharing your story and for being the gift that is you. Yours truly Halimah De

    "Not Good"
    Would you try another book from Eric Thomas and/or Charles Arrington and Eric Thomas ?

    No way. It was all jive talk. Being a white guy from the suburbs I don't think I was the target audience for this book.


    Has The Secret to Success turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I will certainly be looking closer into the authors

    "Mind blowing"

    Eric Thomas gives real life examples which are also practical.
    His style of presentation is appealing as it engages all the senses thus increasing understanding and the appeal.

    Awesome job E.T!

    "No what I thought it would be."

    This book was more of a biography than a hand book to success. Very little was done in providing any steps or clarification to the process of his work. Still an enjoyable listen. Glad I listened on audible and didn't buy the actual book or else I don't think I would have finished it.
    Eric's performance was great and the production was strong.
