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.

    You can read this book and enjoy the good story. Or- you can read this book and apply the deep elements of raw mental grit and mind strengthening techniques that David illustrated throughout the book to your own life. Truly inspiring.

  • Most Motivating book I have ever read!

    I have never came across such and incredible story of grit and adversity in my life. I have recommended this book to so many people both military and civilian and they have nothing but great things to say about the book. I am a CWO5 in the Navy and this book solidifies a lot of my process. Thank you David for sharing your super hero stories. You are indeed the toughest man alive. I hope there is a movie in the making!
