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.
Everybody should by this. It's the second greatest book behind the bible. It WILL add value to your life. Must read.
Eric Thomas is AMAZING! How he paints the picture of success through his audiobook is unlike ANY I have ever heard!
If you dont buy this book then kill yoself
After reading this book I quit my job as a crew member at mcdonalds, took a loan out of the bank, started up my own small business selling cheese and bacon baked potatoes, and just enrolled into community college to study German. My life is so much enjoyable now and I owe it all to this book. If you are ever in Detroit come on over to King Alfred's Baked Potatoes on the corner of Joy Road and Greenfield.
"We will serve you the best baked potato you ever tasted...that's a promise!"
