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.

    "Excellent! Eric was a speaker for our youth!"

    This book was so inspirational and well worth the time and energy to listen to. I had the wonderful experience to listen to Eric in person when he spoke to our youth at Triumph Church!

    This helped me to sort through some things I was struggling with. Thanks Eric.

    "A Phenomenal Work!"
    Would you listen to The Secret to Success again? Why?

    Definitely. New information and insights can be gained when we review material with a new perspective.


    What does Charles Arrington and Eric Thomas bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


    What did you learn from The Secret to Success that you would use in your daily life?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, this is a phenomenal work. Well worth the investment.

    "Poor"

    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.
