Summary

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, 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. 

An annotated edition of Can’t Hurt Me, offering over two hours of bonus content featuring deeper insights and never-before-told stories shared by David. Not available in other formats.

Inspirational!

I’ve listened to David Goggins on countless podcasts and videos but this book went even deeper. Truly makes you question how you’re living, your potential and encourages you to go out and pursue it. BRILLIANT!

Incredible stuff ...

Only at chapter 10 but I couldn't wait any longer. first introduced to DG via Joe Rogans podcast, and since then I've been really interested in his story, and more importantly his mindset. We can all achieve this ... but we need to step off the marshmallow clouds, and be honest with ourselfs. You need to want change for more than just motivational sake, you need to want it because you deserve it. DG, Joe Rogan and Jordan Peterson have become father figures for me. Thank you DG for sharing your insight.

The Thor's Hammer of self help books

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.

What I've been looking for!

This is not a book, this is a mindset, a way of life that I have been looking for a very long time! I've heard most of what is in this book before, the difference with this book is the delivery, it's simple, honest and brutal! I wish I would have been able to read this book when I was growing up, I think this book should be read by every 16 year old male to show him that anything is possible! A message that reaches you!

5 star autobiography

Excellent and innovative in its style; simultaneously taking readers on a journey into the author's past whilst helping them consider their own present situation. I leave inspired by the content.

One of the best book that I listened

I have waited for months to listen this book as David is so inspiring.. when I watched David's Podcast, I started running more than 100km/week and 500 push ups/ day.. his words penetrate through skull and activate pain tolarance neurons in the brain.. Once you listen to this guy for few months in loop.. you will not be the same person as before.. that's for sure..
And it's finally release, I was excited and started listening.. down the line I realize, David is not narrating this book.. n I was like.. why? why?
No doubt book is great, message he tries to tell audience that how he conquer odds by simply hard work, repeatation and inhuman pain tolarance.. is one of the kind.. but it would have been awesome If David would have narrated story..
Thank you David for the inspiration..

I'M A 60 YR OLD WOMAN AND LOVE THIS BOOK!

I WAS CURIOUS AS TO WHETHER I WOULD GET ANY MORE FROM DAVID'S BOOK THAN I HAD ALREADY GOTTEN FROM ALL THE PODCASTS AND OTHER INTERVIEWS I'VE LISTENED TO. WELL THIS BOOK GOES WAY MORE DEEPLY INTO WHAT MOST GOGGINS' FANS ALREADY KNOW OF HIS LIFE AND SOME!

I MENTION MY AGE IN THE HEADLINE IN CASE THERE ARE OTHER OLDER PEOPLE, AND WOMEN IN GENERAL WHO WONDER IF A BOOK ABOUT THE LIFE OF THE HARDEST MAN ON EARTH HAS ANYTHING IN IT FOR THEM.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE AN ALPHA MALE, SEAL TEAM WANNA BE, TO GET SOMETHING FROM THIS BOOK. IF YOU ARE INSPIRED BY PEOPLE WHO GET KNOCKED DOWN BUT GET BACK UP AGAIN - OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN THEN YOU CAN APPLY HIS LESSONS TO ANYTHING IN LIFE ! THIS MAN HAS GONE DEEEEEEP INTO SELF REFLECTION AND ACCOUNTABILITY AND ARTICULATES WHAT HE HAS LEARNT, AND HOW HE HAS TURNED WEAKNESSES INTO STRENGTHS BEAUTIFULLY WITH BRUTAL SELF DEPRECATING HONESTY. I'VE READ MANY BOOKS IN THIS GENRE AND I'VE NEVER FELT THIS LEVEL OF RAW HONESTY.

FROM DAVID'S PODCASTS I'VE LEARNT SO MUCH ABOUT THE MENTAL STRENGTH WHICH I'VE USED FOR RUNNING MARATHONS (I HAVE GOGGINS'ED MY WAY THROUGH SEVERAL RACES!) - BUT READING HIS BOOK HAS CHALLENGED ME TO LOOK AT OTHER AREAS OF MY LIFE WHERE I COULD BENEFIT BY GETTING OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE.

FINALLY, WITH THE PODCAST CHATS IN-BETWEEN CHAPTERS YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE IN THE ROOM WITH WITH DAVID AND ADAM, HAVING THE BOOK READ TO YOU THEN DISCUSSING THE CHAPTER WITH DAVID AT THE END. BRILLIANT FORMAT FOR AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY !!!

Master your mind!

The most powerful people are not the ones who control others, it is those who can control themselves. Thank you David for sharing your story. - @Ricky_Arenas

This guy will change your life!

I first heard about David Goggins through Joe Rogan’s podcast. I’ve listened to his interview with him at least a dozen times. Through following David Goggins on social media, I learned he was writing a book. After much anticipation, the audiobook is finally out! I’ve already pre ordered my kindle copy from Amazon once the book is officially released dec, 4. I have no doubt that this audio version will be on repeat. This guy has put so many mantras in my head that constantly motivate me to “get after it.” I’ve even considered getting a tattoo of “uncivilized” (something that David explains) somewhere on my body to always remember to be unstoppable and be hungry for more. I hope his words will inspire you to find out something you don’t already know about yourself. They have for me. David, if you’re reading this, thank you! You’ve certainly made an impact on my life!

STAY HARD

Goggins is one of a kind. There is no one better at helping you understand how to maximize your potential, how to not limit yourself, how to get and stay hard. I will read/listen to anything involving Goggins and have been waiting for this book since it was announced.

If you’ve heard/read about “Living with a Seal” David Goggins is the unnamed Navy Seal in that book. Now you can finally hear his full story.

Get this without thinking twice.

Got me out of my own head- AMAZING!

Amazing audiobook unlike any other I have heard. While it is an audiobook, it also offers elements of a podcast! Truly engaging and forced me to look at my problems and challenges in life in a very different way.

Fantastic and creatively presented

I have been waiting for this book after hearing Goggins on Joe Rogan’s podcast and following him on Instagram. I listened to the book during a Trail Marathon today which replaced my listening to the podcast in a 50 Miler last month. Love the book and it’s autobiographical content and call to action for its listeners, but what I didn’t expect is the creative presentation. After each chapter, the narrator and Goggins discuss each chapter and Goggins offers personal stories and insights. I think even those who are not currently followers will appreciate the humble “this book isn’t about me, it’s about the reader taking action”theme. My only disappointment will be when it ends, but I guess that’s when we need to put those words into action for our own betterment! Can’t recommend it enough.

Looking into the mirror...

Holding yourself accountable. David Goggins is an American Hero. I am grateful to him and others for serving our country and fighting for our freedom. Thank you David for telling it like it is and showing everyone else that they are their own hero, they are held accountable. Celebrate your small successes and get after it, just understand it will be the hardest thing you have ever done because you are in your own way. No excuses, doesn't matter who you are. Period.
