This book, "The Secret To Success" by Eric Thomas; is an inspirational story of one man's hard work and determination to come from nothing and soar to the top. This book is a step by step guide on how to live your life. Thomas isn't saying this is the only way to make it; but the knowledge contained in the book gives the reader an upper hand in the game called life. Admittedly,Eric confesses he has not lived a perfect life; but through perseverance and a few lucky breaks he made it out of the po [...]

One doesn't go to McDonalds and buy a pizza, likewise, one ought not to go to a speaker and expect a thrilling book.I'm a big fan of some of Thomas's material, I've even been to one of his live events and there's no doubt the man is a phenominal speaker with the capacity to inspire the masses but his book, like his material, lacks an overall message. The book can be guilty of slipping into the Eric Thomas "I've made it" show, where the author proclaims his "success" sometimes forgetting to add t [...]

We mostly know ET for his phenomenal motivational speeches on YouTube. I remember the first time I got to see him speak was in an amateurishly recorded video, while he was giving his "guru speech," and I thought, "Wow This guy knows how to pump you up. It's a wonder he's not famous." Some time passed before I stumbled upon his YouTube channel "ETTheHipHopPreacher," and it was like a source of inspiration I would go to whenever I felt out of gas.This book cast a whole new light on the challenges [...]

The Secret to success was a good book. Its very easy to read and understand, especially for people my age. Its a motivational book for young readers mainly. Eric Thomas provides you with many lessons and tips for life. He also connects them with past stories in his life. Not only does he have this book, he also has a few videos that are just like the book. The book starts off with Eric's parents leaving for Chicago to visit his aunt Wanda. He throws a party while they are gone and tries to cover [...]

If there is one thing you got to realize its this: Its amazing how much BS you went through and still end up being okay. Give credit to where you are now. You've gotten this far. You are much stronger than you think. Once you know this You Can Do AnythingEric Thomas is down to earth and keeps it real. He doesn't sugarcoat pain, he acknowledges it, yet he doesn't let pain conquer. Its all about perspective :) "Remember Pain is Temporary, Quitting however lasts forever"Stories like this, help us s [...]

Very inspirational book, the whole time I was hooked and sometimes had trouble putting the book down. Eric Thomas has a lot to share and just made me feel better after reading it and made me want to work harder. Easy read --> the book has a very good flow to it and while I was reading it I got lost to the outside world because I was so into the book.

One of the most motivational books I've ever read [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.

Came across Eric Thomas through his inspirational youtube videos. The book clearly came off the back of the video's success, and gave deeper insight in to Eric's background and life story. While it lacked any tangible advice or direction, it was certainly a motivational read and provided a strong reminder to keep battling, keep pushing forward and keep working hard in the pursuit of dreams.Some quotes from the bookEveryone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.- Leo [...]

I listened to the audiobook and I imagine that this would be the way to go for this book. The audio version is narrated by Eric Thomas himself and his narration is rich and engaging. Here are some of the takeaways I enjoyed. - Consider all the consequences of your choices. You don't know what you have till its gone. E.T ran away from home at the age of 16 only to realize how great, physically at least, his life at home was. - Give to others. Be that good friend who supports and adds value onto o [...]

Definitely a great starter read to those seeking self-help or inspirational books or even those in high school or college for sure. ET tells a great story and shares great advice but this is more of a success story versus shedding light on his secrets to success, although he does touch on that briefly throughout parts of the book. Part of me is glad it wasn't a "step by step guide" on how to be successful or a "What It Takes" book. ET gives off this energy that is untouchable and incomparable an [...]

Eric Thomas' The Secret to Success was recommended to me by a friend, and I'm glad I stopped to read this inspring book. Thomas did a great job weaving in elements of his personal story to remind you he's more like you than not and assure you the principles were derived from real-life experiences not theories. There are moments when you fault the book's editor(s) for not doing more to help this first-time author with the structure and formatting of the book, but the errors often hint back to the [...]

I really enjoyed reading The Secret to Success by Eric Thomas. It was one of those books that the reader doesn't want to set down. Eric Thomas does a phenomenal job of using his path to success to pull out tips and principles that the reader can use to become more successful. He incorporates his real life experiences into the book to show the reader what he could have done differently and how he can learn from his past mistakes and failures. The book really motivated me after seeing that someone [...]

I've always been hesitant listening to or reading literature by motivational speakers because I feel as though it's the same general "do more and you will become successful" tactics! But Eric Thomas has given me the much needed inspiration and motivation to believe again and that in order to succeed you need that "can do" attitude. He has taken the desire to being the best at everything to a whole new level. I have accepted that failure is an option but only if you are willing to try again! This [...]

A very easy read, but enlightening nonetheless. There are multiple lessons that one can learn from reading this book as well as tips about how to approach life and/or school. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has ever doubted themselves or felt indecisive at times in their life. The biggest of these lessons that I learned, there is no secret to success which I had already knew there wasn't one. Heart power is fueled by desire and desire along with heart will take you to your destination [...]

I'll forgive the numerous typos in favor of the message Dr. ET provides through his autobiography, which reminds one to develop and exercise grit through life's challenges and my favorite: "If you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you'll be successful." It doesn't (and shouldn't) matter where you're from or what your upbringing was, but if you recognize you want to become better and you want your surroundings to be equally better, then you would do well to follow ET's example.

I am giving this book a 4, slightly reluctantly. It was a good, descriptive book, but it wasn't what I thought it was going to be. His "Secret to Success" is just an autobiography on his life. He does give some elementary life lessons, but they all aren't close to what this guy does on YouTube. I was hoping the book would be more like his speeches. I did enjoy the book, I'm glad I read it, but it really wasn't what I was looking for.

I made sure to get the audiobook because I knew Eric Thomas would be narrating and when he speaks, you can't help but listen. Regardless of format, this is a very good book for those looking to be successful in life. He uses his life as the example showcasing how he went from a homeless high school drop out to the ET we all know today. It's better geared toward a younger audience like late teens, early 20s but anyone can derive lessons from it. I know I did!

Great book if you believe in Eric Thomas' message! I had heard of his struggles through homelessness, and it was great seeing how he got to where he is now.The reason I give it a 4 is because I downloaded the Kindle version which isn't yet formatted correctly. I would recommend buying the physical copy or waiting for the correctly formatted Kindle version

Inspiring autobiography by E.T. the Hip Hop Preacher. Since he is an inspiring speaker I chose to listen to the audio book version rather than read it. Besides, they were his words. Better to hear them in his voice.

Loved it. Basically one of the best books that I have ever read (listened to).

Love ET's passion and heart for people. His story is very inspiring, giving one hope to accomplish whatever they put their mind to.

ET has been my motivator and life coach for a long time and his autobiography the secret to success is the best inspirational book I ever read why it is the best let me point it out•Nothing in this book is made up everything is from his true story of rags to riches•Not only is this book an inspiration one for the reader, it helps anyone to inspire anyone, all you need is some points from this•It even shows you how to be the world's best teacher or speakerThe book is such a masterpiece on w [...]

The secret: do what you know is within you and give a REAL effort. Don't shrivel up and die when adversity hits keep moving forward.SPOILER: ET is a phenomenal speaker, and not the best at correcting grammatical mistakes. You can tell this was written earlier in his career, but don't lose the significance of his story and his message!

Great Motivator!!This book is awesome to me because it shows how adversity can be overcome through persistence and hard work. I follow ET now and a glimpse into his past make me feel I can overcome as well. I’d recommend this for anyone looking for some motivation or academic professionals seeking ways to encourage their students.

I listened to the audio book for this and it was a great inspirational story!Since I grew up in middle class suburbs, ET's style doesn't work for me sometimes, but his story is awe-inspiring. This is a great book for anyone who his struggling to find a way to be happy with their life.

Eric Thomas is great. This book wasn't as well-written as I would have liked, but definitely has a lot of gems and worth the little time it takes to read it.

I wanted to love this book, I really did. I found Eric Thomas on Facebook and watched a clip of his. Then I found his videos on YouTube and got hooked. While studying for the Bar I would use his inspirational videos to help me believe in myself. Now, with the Bar successfully behind me, I thought I'd enjoy using his audiobook to inspire me in my career. His passion just did not translate well in book form. The book would have benefited from some careful editing. The stories seemed to come out of [...]
