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.

    By Wtfnonameworks
    I truly, and I mean truly loved this book. I wish I could meet Mr. Goggins and just talk to him in person and maybe train some day! That would be awesome. As the book came to a close I found myself feeling a bit sad that it had ended. Loved it!

  • Excellent Read

    By FletchyAF98
    This book is astounding and beautiful. While I disagree with how some of the words were used in a minuscule few parts of the book, the message behind every word always rang true. If I had to choose between using the money to buy this book again in order to keep reading it, or being able to feed myself with that money for the next week, I’d buy the book again.

    After reading this book and listening to the audio book version, even a go-getter like myself has a new outlook on what’s possible, and can self-motivate better than ever before. Do the challenges! They’ll do you good in all walks of life.
