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 US 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.

Although in the title I have said this is a self help book, I would really call it a self awakening book.
This book is not for everyone, as you read or listen, one of 2 things will happen. You will either start to feel that there are too many challenges ahead and take the easy way out and go back to watching telly.
Or, if you are worthy, you will re-ignite the flame you had as a kid to just get up and get after it.
The story of David Goggins life is inspirational, bit what he is doin is simply opening a door to discovery of yourself.
Best listen in ages, shed tears of realisation whilst reflecting between his and my own life, and wasted potential past.
