Can't Hurt Me

For David Goggins, childhood was a nightmare - poverty, prejudice, and physical abuse colored his days and haunted his nights. But through self-discipline, mental toughness, and hard work, Goggins transformed himself from a depressed, overweight young man with no future into a U.S. Armed Forces icon and one of the world's top endurance athletes. The only man in history to complete elite training as a Navy SEAL, Army Ranger, and Air Force Tactical Air Controller, he went on to set records in numerous endurance events, inspiring Outside magazine to name him The Fittest (Real) Man in America.

In Can't Hurt Me, he shares his astonishing life story and reveals that most of us tap into only 40% of our capabilities. Goggins calls this The 40% Rule, and his story illuminates a path that anyone can follow to push past pain, demolish fear, and reach their full potential.

Outstanding5 star

Author explains in detail his motivations, principals and mind strategies he employs to push physically farther than anyone in any profession. The key he summarizes is winning in the mind. This is similar to the message shared by Jocko and his guests in the Jocko podcast. Excellent read for gaining tools and tips for achieving higher levels. 55

Please Read5 star

I haven’t opened a book just to read on purpose since elementary school. Most books I either had to do a report on or were text books, but this book blew my mind. I’ve watched podcasts with David Goggins and I’ve always been amazing by his discipline and story. When I saw his book was out I had to buy it and I read over half of it in one sitting because I couldn’t stop. The world needs more people that are willing to strengthen their body and mind the way David has and I know that I will be pursuing every route I can to callous my mind each and every day. 55

Must read5 star

This book will rip your soul right open . One of the best books I’ve read this year 55


Can’t Beat This.5 star

I admit that I've read a lot of books on high-achievers, mostly written by special operators, psychologists, historians, etc. I have been following David Goggins for a couple of years, and I THOUGHT I understood his story in detail --- until I read his book. His ability to convey his story, analysis and message of the mindset of being driven has surpassed my expectations by far. Some may write him off as narrow-viewed with no filter or brake. This is far from the case. David Goggins has just as cerebral insight as Dr. Carol Dweck, Malcolm Gladwell and other great writers. The difference lies in his EXPERIENCE of the mindset and not simply an academic view. I would recommend this book to anyone who believes that the human mind and capability is far misunderstood, under appreciated and without having tapped its potential.
