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 Book!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Secret to Success to be better than the print version?

I did not read the print version but this is the best audio book I have EVER heard.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Eric Thomas. He gives hope to those who never believed they could never achieve greatness.


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

Passion


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

The fact that a set back is just a setup for a greater opportunity, and to keep believing in your dreams and most of all keep believing in yourself.


Any additional comments?

Most audiobooks I listen to are normally the same, where the narrator is basically reading the words on the page. With Eric Thomas, I don't think this man knows what the word normal means. This was the most interesting book I have ever listened to in my life. He brought a level of energy and passion to this book that GREATLY exceeded what I was expecting.This is the ONLY book that I have finished the same day I got it. Excellent job E.T. and I look forward for the next one.

Thanks

Would you consider the audio edition of The Secret to Success to be better than the print version?

I love reading books, but to hear ET's words directly out of his mouth was a good touch, so in this case I would say YES!


What did you like best about this story?

I loved that ET was such an open book with his life. I have started to watch at least one video a day on you tube, to keep myself in a good head space. However, I really wanted to know more behind the man he is, so the book answered a lot of those questions.


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

Goosebumps=) for example when ET was talking about when he found out he passed the GED. I felt so excited for him, in a way that I would not have if I was just reading it.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book, these words have helped me. I have been going to college for a major I wasn't happy with, today I changed my major. I want to work on truly making myself happy by doing what I believe only I can do.


Any additional comments?

Thanks, for sharing your experiences, and touching my heart. Please keep posting on You Tube, I absolutely love what your doing!! I am sure you will get to Oprah=)
