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.

    Touching, moving autobiography!! Was very tough to read sometimes, because of what David endured and chose to put himself through. A wonderful lesson in resilience, determination, discipline and self direction. I wish his experiences weren’t that brutal but I certainly have a learned a lot from this book and especially resilience and discipline. Thanks David for sharing your story with the world and mentoring so many others who felt like they didn’t have a chance at success. When you compete with yourself, there can be no limits!!

    Ran a 5K and kept saying overpower the governor! It motivated me to finish. I know it’s not much in comparison to Goggins but it’s my starting place. Thank you for such a brilliantly powerfully written book. Such an honor to read. Perseverance and resilience like no other! I’m inspired . This book is a real page turner! Couldn’t put it down! It fueled and motivated me. It woke something up inside of me. I want more and I will get more out of myself! Thank you for writing this book and for humbling allowing us access into your world. Forever grateful.

  • Amateur Reader Opinion

    By Nickclark
    I was captivated by his story when I heard him on JRE and read more around the web. The book was a good read but didn’t add much that I hadn’t heard. I’m not sure what it’s classified as but I would call it an autobiography with hints self-help. There’s not much actionable advise beyond “dig deeper”. His story is incredible and motivating all the same.
