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.

    Tingles from reading this, straight tingles
  • Started good, got repetitive

    I loved the beginning of this book, his life story is amazing and all that he’s accomplished is truly insane and beyond comprehension. With that being said, it got less inspiring and more felt like he was rooting his own horn for 100 or so races. New concepts stopped being introduced and we just had to hear about all of the races he ran and injuries he sustained. Luckily, the book wasn’t too long, I was kind of waiting for it to end.
