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 listened to this book in one day. It is a positive upbeat book. The author used his ups and downs in life and how he moved forward and made himself a success.
E.T. Brought the hood alive. However what inspired me the most was the real mess he was and yet persevered to return to Detroit in a much better state.
The over comer story is truly a reminder that we can all be great, if we want to be successful if we want it as bad as we want to breath!
Phenomenal read. I will reread again and again. Well done Dr. Thomas. I am so glad that you are not afraid of the judgemental Christians of the world and really reaching within your gut and soul and putting it out there for us to be great. Pleased.
A+ production value, inspiring story, salient points for growth. Well worth the purchase. If this is your first time listening to Dr. Eric Thomas, this book will make you go back to YouTube and watch everything he's ever done.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's funny, motivating, and inspiring! I would suggest it to everyone, especially those struggling with following their dreams. You won't be disappointed.
