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 didn't know what to expect but as a student of success I was inspired by the never give up, nothing to lose story of ET.
Another favorite book of mine is Nothing to Lose by Ryan Blair. The story is similar and will be similar to my book when I finally sit down to write it.
The narration was great with good breakups between chapters. I like the way ET comes across. The chapters were nice bite size chunks that allowed me to pay attention, be able to stop where I needed to and pick right up again.
Never give up. It was refreshing to hear that ET had made the decision to give up, but the seed he planted reminded him to never give up and resulted in all of his need being met.
I love this book and would recommend it to any student of success.
Hey there !! Thanks for checking out my bio ... My name is khalid and I'm 14 years old, my first book I have read and loved was HG
So far it's the first book I've read in self improvement and I like it so it's the first now :)
Eric Thomas .. He was the main character and my favorite
Well Charles Arrington only narrated some quotes and the chapter titles mostly ..
But Eric Thomas ... I loved him narrating because when he was narrating I didn't feel he is reading a book but I felt he was talking to me directly which I really liked and it is what makes me like this book :))
Yes it was , period .
This book is good for students and people that are desperate in life and people who would like to change
BELIVE me this book will change you
100% Yes! really interesting and has some great stuff to think about in this book.
Great book very inspiring! very emotional and makes you think about a lot of stuff in life, VERY WELL SPOKEN - GREAT narration. advised.
Yes, The "INTENSITY" of his "PASSION" in getting the message across to the reader/listener is uncomparable.
It's never too late - Effort + Energy + 5am + Pain = Reward!
I've recommended this to my kids, friends and parents. This dude changed my thinking when no one could.
Book nerd for life!
Absolutely; it's a great story about taking the hand you're dealt and still coming out on top.
I don't know if it's comparable to any book I've read.
I've heard some of ET's speeches before.
One of the most motivational books I've ever listened to. Eric Thomas tells us his story and the different things he's learned along the way (sometimes, the hard way). He overcame all sorts of adversity to make it to where he is today. Loved the story and the audiobook was extremely enjoyable with him narrating. Highly recommended; officially one of my favorites.
Ways and methods to actually succeed, instead of a personal story of how HE succeeded.
Yes, he's a very good speaker in his youtube videos and live as well. But this book was more of an inpirational book of how he came from nothing and where he is today. I was looking for actual tangible ideas I could implement in my life but did not receive them. Still a good book, but just didn't do it for me.
Im a huge fan of ET. his passion behind his story made me feel like i was right there.
No, just not my area of interest
nothing, the book was fine, just not my area
This is a fine book/story for the right audience. But it really applies more to people who are trying to raise themselves up and get their core life together. Unfortunately I did not get this from the reviews and synopsis before purchasing. Great story, just not really what I was looking for in a audio book.
Proper English. This book seems to be narrated in ebonics which is all but unintelligible to a non-American listener.
No, but then I don't think this book should be in the self-development genre. This appears to be a book about finding religion, and not a self-development book about the secret to success.
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
