Feels like a truly open and honest reflection of a remarkable life
Fascinating, open recount of a remarkable man. Driven with a passion that’s truly inspiring.
A entrepreneur with drive. To those that know him closely it would be interesting to know how true this is but as an outsider I found this one of the best autobiography books out there

Truly Astonishing!! Life’s cruelness turned to fuel
What a truly astonishing book, if only half of the occurrences he experienced as child took place that would destroy most people!! I don’t think it’s possible to ever fully comprehend the traumas he suffered and it’s pure heart, emotion, strength and desire that fuel an amazing man. The audiobook experience is an incredible way to gain additional insights into chapters and experiences. It’s a fantastic format that I thoroughly enjoyed.
I noticed very little time is spent discussing relationship breakdowns with friends and wives etc but you learn enough about him to understand why and not dwell on this.
Mr David Goggins, thank you for sharing your life with us all and for the challenges. To anyone thinking of buying / listening. I’d say “do not hesitate”, but please pay attention when you do listen. This is powerful stuff and worth investing the quality time to listen.
