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.
Can’t Beat This.
I admit that I've read a lot of books on high-achievers, mostly written by special operators, psychologists, historians, etc. I have been following David Goggins for a couple of years, and I THOUGHT I understood his story in detail --- until I read his book. His ability to convey his story, analysis and message of the mindset of being driven has surpassed my expectations by far. Some may write him off as narrow-viewed with no filter or brake. This is far from the case.
David Goggins has just as cerebral insight as Dr. Carol Dweck, Malcolm Gladwell and other great writers. The difference lies in his EXPERIENCE of the mindset and not simply an academic view.
I would recommend this book to anyone who believes that the human mind and capability is far misunderstood, under appreciated and without having tapped its potential.

Can’t hurt me
Amazing story, with lots of truth and wisdom learned through painful life lessons. More important was the ability to change his mindset to turn tragedies into victories. His willingness to share his fears and vulnerability for everyone to read is uncommon. I read the book over several hours straight, I couldn’t put it down. I plan to reread many more times to reinforce these life lessons in my mind, as I set out to face and conquer my fears and failures every day, and improve my own life.
