Can't Hurt Me by David Goggins Book Summary


New York Times Best Seller

Over 3 million copies sold

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.

Prepare to Introspect. Goggins challenges readers to confront themselves around what they think or believe their limitations are. He’s real and gritty. Got me introspecting pretty good.


Perfect title for this book.. This is a very inspiring book written about a very inspiring individual. I hope I grow from reading this book and become a better man for me and my family. I leave you with one question. What if?

Lucas Charbonneau

Best book I’ve ever read. I religiously challenge myself every day but not like Goggins did and still does. This book allowed me to see the true potential I have, but also how little I truly push myself. I would recommend it to anyone trying to change their lives. Truly an inspiring book.

Thank you. Thank you

Fantastic read!!!. Simply amazing! A must read for everyone!!


Amazing!. Best


Yes. Great book , I rarely read a whole book but this kept me interested all the way till the end.


Obsessed. I don’t know what took me so long to read this! What an inspiring story with accountability and vulnerability strewn throughout.


Him Duncan…💯🙌🏽. Goggins is the real deal. Changed my way of thinking

Chazzy Mc

Just ok. The book definitely isn’t worth the price. I understand the motivation behind this but it’s still a memoir of his life and to me he dedicated so much motivation and focus into only one area of his life. At some point in the book it becomes repetitive and boring to say the least.


Stellar. Read this book in a solid 3 days, couldn’t put it down.


Best book ever. Absolutely hands down the best book I read in a long time. Inspiring and transforming. I will reread it .


Motivational. If you’re hesitant to read this because you think he’s a superhero and he’s different from you, let him explain over and over again, that he wasn’t. David was a mess from the start, but just like any great icon, he overcomes those challenges in a way that is incredible to read.


Please return?. I purchased this version by mistake, wanting the clean version for my son who needs to hear David’s story. I ended up purchasing both. Can I please be refunded for this version? I don’t see where I can request this in the app. Thanks so much!!


👌🏽👌🏽. Great read for anyone who ever thought to play the victim mentality in life. Teaches you to just get after it.


Fantastic. Fantastic book it’s life changing will change your outlook on life


Worth the read. Goggins truly a beast


Review. Great read. Highly recommend. Will add perspective to how you approach problems. Good for mental health as well.


Impeccable. Extremely well written and inspirational

Chris Jannenga

Couldn’t put it down!. First book I’ve read cover to cover in 8 years.


Must read!!. Hard and heavy to read in the beginning but midway through I could not put this book down. I was reading this book on my phone everywhere. Such an inspiring and incredible story


Amazing!. This book exceeded my expectations in every way, and challenged my thought process too. Worth every penny!


Gassed Up. Really good book about one BAMF! This book will get you gassed up to be a better version of yourself.


Loved every minute of this book.. Real, raw, inspiring, and life changing. 6 starts out of 5 💯

Dakota Shay

INCREDIBLE!!!. This is a life altering, mind aligning biography. David Goggins is as real as it gets. Showing the good the bad and the ugly. But most importantly he proves that failure and accountability of that failure wether self induced or from extremely unfortunate events can make you accomplish the “impossible”. This has and forever will change my mindset!

A. Meray

Can't Hurt Me, is a great read. Stay Hard!. If you are going through challenges in your life and feel like you're not tapping into your hidden abilities, this is a read for you. I appreciate David’s transparency and his ability to tell stories of his journey through life like no other. I used this book to take steps to make myself comfortable with being uncomfortable while striving to be my best self!


75 hard challenge. I chose this book to start my 75 hard challenge! It was exactly what I needed, a push in the right direction to hear David’s voice daily pushing himself for greatness!


Can’t Hurt Me. Excellent story. Real all the way. Life changing. Hope he writes more.


An inspiring read. A freaking great book, I definitely recommend it to anybody who wants to find motivation within themselves!


Reignite the inferno. If your down on your luck or kinda just burnout from the grind of daily life please read this book. It will reignite the inferno. Thank you for your service David!


Perfect timing. I started this book one week after a full replacement to my left hip. Post Op PT is a mind game, especially with conflicting opinions with the physical therapist and the surgeon. Both have valid points, but it they both agree it depends on what I could tolerate. I don’t mind / tolerate doing more PT than prescribed. This book reminded me it’s ok to be uncomfortable. The mind could be the greatest obstacle a person has.

What if you really did it. 8

One of the best books of your life thank you David goggins 👊👊🏿. Help some much in life. And help me turn my life around. EVERYONE NEEDS To READ THIS BOOK

Jake medina 11

Great read. Great book from start to finish, very inspiring


Good story. Highly recommended.

Darius Ford

Amazing. It is both uplifting and humbling. The heroes journey and then some. I’m leaving this book more enlightened than before which I feel is the undisclosed mission of most books we read. Not all accomplish that goal. This one though, has.

Joel N. Guardiola

Best book I’ve ever read. It’s the only book I’ve ever read. I now know that I can get a lot of wisdom from other peoples experiences, thank you David for sharing your amazing story. At the age of 24 It has caused me to reflect on my own actions and where they have lead me to in life. I now know that I am capable of much more than I ever thought, and that if I continue to cozy up in bed rather than get after it, I will get no where in life. I haven’t ran a mile in years, from start to finish of your book I have ran 30 miles over the span of a month. This year I plan to run a marathon. Thank you.

No duckin around

Good book. Good book


Inspired. This book has elevated my mindset to better understand what I’m capable of. A great book that is a great read that holds you in all the way to the finish.

Dillon Gamble

Best book I’ve ever read. If you are looking to take responsibility of your life, this is for you.


Highly recommend. It is an inspirational book about what one can do if he/she sets mind into it

Damitri scarberry

Can’t hurt me. Very useful knowledge. Thank you.


Worth the read!!. I was looking for something to read that was a different from a lot of other books. Can’t Hurt Me is a book that will help you remove any self limitations and always put your best foot forward.


Inspired!. An amazing story from a VERY driven man in life !!


Glad this was the first book I read in a long time. Inspired


Life Changing. This book changed me for the better.


Amazing. Took me to a new level of mental toughness and awareness.


Outstanding. After years of watching the author’s pod casts and audio interviews. This book really adds to the stories he publicly tells and adds clarity to the mindset he advertises outside of the book. Great read for ANYONE looking to better themselves in any facet


👍🏼. Inspiring!


So inspiring!. Fantastic book, did not take me long to read it at all! So glad I was given the opportunity to read a glimpse into the intense world of David Goggins and the path he built for himself. #Stay hard.


Must read. A great story of adversity.

Can’t Hurt Me. Amazing book! Googins is more mentally tough than I though possible and this book will help you with your metal toughness.


What if?. If this book does not leave you feeling like you are capable of so much more than you currently think- read it again.

A McGhee RealtorⓇ

Life Changing. This book will push you to go further, and become something you only ever read about. One word...AMAZING!


Thank you.. Changed my life. Period.


Even better the second time around!!. Excellent book and a great read. I highly recommend putting effort into the challenges, it will be worth it!!


Lucky to read such a fascinating life story.. Best book ever. This book helped me a lot to push myself harder and achieve my goals even if they look impossible in the initial stage.


Worth Buying. I liked this book


Phenomenal. Goggins holds nothing back and shares a truly inspiring story. I’ll be referring back to this book for inspiration throughout my career.


Eye Opener. Showed how far we can go physically and mentally. The only thing that’s stopping you is you! Go to war with yourself!!!!!!


A must read!. A fantastic book that inspires you to push as hard as you can and overcome any obstacle in your path. Has inspired me to make changes to my life. A must read for everyone!


Beyond comprehension. Amazing. Absolutely amazing. He has made me think of things I have never even imagined in life. It’s true what they say. Expand your knowledge by reading. Anytime you pick up a book you never know what or when something will inspire you. David is the real deal. I also heard his audio book/podcast. Better then just the book


Fantastic!. This book is inspiring.


Amazing Read. Highly recommend.. This is not your typical Navy SEAL book. This is an autobiography of the person on the cover. A coming-of-age story about a kid whom grew up bullied at school and abused at home and With a learning disability. And how he overcame those obstacles and every challenge life put in his way. On top of the ones he purposely sought out and crushed. The author also illustrates in a step-by-step process, how anybody can overcome obstacles in their own life. Regardless where they are.


Awesome. I could not put this down it was that good


Amazing. You will not regret reading this book


Inspiring. I am a former member of the CAF, A few buddies and I refer to the challenges in the book for training. When asked why we go so hard, why do we do so much leisure PT? Because everyday I wake up I want to forge myself. Making a better human then I was the day before, that could be mental strength or pushing the limits of physical capabilities. Thank you for sharing your story, I can imagine how hard it would be! Keep being you man, never be ashamed of how far you’ve come

Minecraft lover1004

Changed my life forever!. No words can explain the gratitude I have for David Goggins. He has completely changed my life in so many ways. This book not only saved my life, pushed me toward my goals with the right mindset, and help me achieve those goals in the toughest times, but may be the most important thing I have ever read. Mad respect brother. #40percentrule #canthurtme

Most inspirational book. Most inspirational book I’ve read in my life. Has completely shifted my perspective on what I thought was humanly possible. Thanks David for your story and service.


Great book, great advice. Very tough advice, but very truthful. Sometimes the writing was slow and made it a bit boring. But overall, great advice


Inspiring read. Goggins is a beast. Such an inspiring story. Will take so much away from this book, especially the idea of callousing the mind! Stay hard.


Pretty good. I appreciate his dedication and mind set to continually push himself despite it being a bit full on. We all need a little bit of his determination. Highly recommend :)


Makes me want to run a marathon. Motivating as hell 🔥


Phenomena, thank you Goggins. Amazing book, the messages will be buried deep within my subconscious mind.

Xanthe rose

best book.. THE BEST BOOK seriously, it has changed the way I see things. Everyone should read. Stay hard!

Nay j

🔥 Life Changing. Hands down, THIS is the the most inspiring book I have ever read. My life have been transformed for the better 💯 … Going after it ✊🏽


Amazing! Loved every moment. It’s not often I pick up a book that I can’t put down and at the same time be truly Inspired by it. This book motivated me when it wasn’t ment to, but his story and his mindset is so influential it’s hard not to be motivated. I read this on my iPad but I will know doubt by a hard cover copy and keep it on the shelf like I am the one who’s proud


Epic!. Unbelievable

Startup Andy

Be prepared for a self - reflection assault. This is one of the most “in your face” life stories that, I have no doubt, if the individual does some real self audit, calls out their own BS and applies the tools given, can take their lives to a new sense on meaning and purpose. I’m gunna read this again, this time with journal in hand and start to work on building some callouses!

Clint Lowe

Read, Apply, Benefit.. David is an inspirational man, and he will inspire and teach you to reach your utmost potential. He has inspired me to move to a place I love, relese my own motivational book ‘Swimming in Puddles,’ and to start a small YouTube channel.


Raw and real. Absolutely incredible. Woke me the f up. Bless this man! He is a beast.


Speechless. 👏


Staying hard. Amazing book, motivated me to get off the couch and get after it. Stay hard


YeahDasRight. Many tools in this book you can apply in your own life no matter what stage in life you’re currently in👌 #Canthurtme

Empowering. An inspiring story and one of the best books I have read. David I believe you truly are that “one warrior”.

Terrell may

Goggins. Amazing book

Russell Neill

Truly eye opening. This book should be taught in schools globally.

J Nuich

Can’t Hurt Me. A fantastic and inspirational read. I heard David Goggins on the Joe Rohan podcast and bought the book the next day. It was everything I had hoped it would be. To endure an upbringing such as the one David did and come out of it as such an inspiration for others is a feat to be proud of, and no doubt it took a lot of hard work and discipline to get there. What a champion!! Justin


Can’t hurt me review. Not bad


Recommend highly. Helps you to overcome the personal hesitation of achieving your dreams


Interesting. A great book - makes you evaluate your own life. Callous your mind and ask what if?


Loved it. Absolutely amazing read, motivates me to go harder and never give up, what if!


Wow. Unbelievable read. This guy is a beast. #stayhard


Highly recommend. Raw and truthful account of what can be borne through adversity. From a harsh childhood to a phenomenal athletic career, this book covers off on Davids life but also examines the way we intervene on our own inherent ability to persevere. Loved it, very insightful


cant hurt me. Brilliant


The key to success/happiness. The best book I have ever read. Will read it over and over for the rest off my life. Would do anything to be able to sit and have a conversation with this man.


What -a navy seal - if?. An interesting read, didn’t know the human body and mind were so resilient. Some descriptions of the navy seal training were hard to imagine as real, but as the author says, what if?

Abe Nouk

Wow.. One word. Wow.


Raw, honest, transparent, inspiring, confronting, amazing. Incredible read. This guy has had a life. The principles of success in life, not the seals, not ultramarathons, life, are on full display here. Highly recommend reading this book to anyone who feels they just want to be more in life. In my case it made the excuses I was accepting from myself seem irrelevant. Good job David, keep on the path of most resistance. If you ever come to Australia I will be front and centre to introduce myself.


Recommend. What a great motivational book

Kristijan 1997

The best. This book really motivated me to get up and get it done!


You’ll alienate all you’re friends and family.. Loved the book and annoyed almost everyone I know with constant references to working out and being a hard guy. I should mention...I’m basically the Michelin Man, very funny.




Its never too late to start. David’s book details his life, his failures and his accomplishments. I feel like reading this book might just be an accomplishment in itself. You love sought it out and got to the end. Maybe, just maybe, what David sets out in perfect detail throughout this book is followed, could be enough for the reader to decide that it’s never too late and that “what if” it just all might be possible for you? Truely a great read an honest account of a life spent having a go! I loved it.


Goggins is a true beast!. Mr Goggins speaks truth! The mind is a weak thing. Strengthen your mind and possibilities are endless. The only person stopping you, is you and your mind! Doing something uncomfortable everyday, what an obvious concept, but so true! What if rather than looking in the mirror to see your abs, you looked and had an honest conversation about yourself and your aim rather that losing lbs was losing weakness and strengthening your mind! Great easy read, with some powerful advice and experiences shared!


Can’t hurt me, comparisons on a life lived by myself.. I was spotlighted to this book by many a friend. I was aware of Mr. Goggins, but did not pick the book up until a therapist and PT chap I used, whilst nursing a couple of calf injuries, encouraged me to read it. He dared to compare me with this legend, but now having read the book and enjoyed it immensely (I now know there are people out there who think like me, as this is my way of thinking throughout life) I understand why my PT/Therapist (now a very dear friend to me), did what he did and encouraged me to read. I challenge anyone who is fed up, down in luck, overweight, or just wanting to do more with their life, pick this book up and learn. I broke my spine over 18 years ago, lost many years faffing around but slowly, methodically found my way back and restored my life, fitness, career and general life back to normality. My injuries are gone and I am in two careers, NHS and Armed Forces, better prepared and more knowledgable then ever, having read this book. The question, what if? Drives me and will continue to drive me going forward as I question everything I want to achieve and generally achieve what I set out to do. My only question is, why did I not pick up this book sooner? No matter, I have now and can call it one of the bibles of life, one which I will be basing my own book around this, but lets be clear, with my own tales of struggle. And at 48 and about to rejoin a military unit after everything I have gone through, like David Goggins says himself, why not? I am not done and never will be, but to gain knowledge from a life well lived and well written book, then what are you waiting for - pick the book up today and read it. You wont regret it. Per Ardua.


What if?. This is the first book I’ve finished in many years and has been an amazing experience. The things I’ve learnt from this will stay with me forever. I found the first part of the book quite disturbing to read, but once past that and into David’s account of his military training, I was completely hooked. It’s not going to be for everyone, but if you read with an open mind you will learn things which may spark huge changes in your life.

Best app you will get!!!!

Thank you. Very inspiring, thank you David for sharing your life story! It will make me a better person in so many ways! #canthurtme

Benjamin Mc Michael

Can’t Hurt Me. Gritty book full of success and perseverance. Would be interesting to see how being that driven has effected the interpersonal relationships in his life. Definitely going to take on some of his attitudes and the accountability mirror will be implemented. Well done David thanks for sharing your journey and your pain.


Inspiring. An unbelievable man that’s lived an unbelievable life. Uncommon among uncommon.


Brilliant honest read. Brutally honest and that’s how it should be. Excellent inspiring read with a lot of lessons and tips to take away, from a man who had been at top of the game and also dirt rock bottom, but never stopped learning and coming back for more. Highly recommend giving this book a read. Best Quote “There’s no end.”

Train with Luce

The best book I’ve ever read. Nothing has ever inspired me more than this book. It’s the only book that has ever made me actively want to change and challenge myself. INCREDIBLE


Outstanding. Powerful stuff in the right hands. Thank you.

Danny bluelion

Great book. This book is a great read after reading it I fell anything is possible


Amazing. Incredible story. Incredible human being.


Master of mindsets. I’ve probably only ever read 7-8 books voluntarily. This lingered on my Apple Books for a while, only reading when I don’t have internet if I’m honest. But every time I came back to this book, it really moved me. DGs mindset and search for the uncomfortable is so enamouring, and the things he has been through and faced (most by choice) is super inspiring. It’s definitely the only book I’ve ever read and gone back to re-read things, and there was one paragraph that I read over and over again, such was it’s strength and message. Has it had an effect on me? Early to say, but having just finished it, I’m sure it will have. I really need to read it again to reaffirm a few things, but I’d say it will have had a positive effect on my mindset. A great read that not only talks about wins, but losses too, and multiple losses.

Al sel

The most inspirational story I’ve ever heard and the most inspired I’ve ever been. I can barely put into words how incredible David’s story is- I am in awe of what a human can achieve and his relentlessness to never ever give in, even under the most horrific-seeming circumstances (traumatic childhood and adolescence, massive health issues etc etc etc) and still defied the odds is just remarkable!!!! This read could change your life - seriously


Great read. Inspirational book, really value the raw and unfiltered content. We have more in us than we think we are capable of as humans, highly recommend it!

James Newcastle 2019

Fantastic book. This is a must read!! If you know of David through various pod cast episodes I.e Joe Rogan and Rich Roll then the book provides even deeper insights to this incredible man. His story is truly inspirational and you can genuinely apply most of his lessons to your own life, for self improvement. I would truly recommend this book!!!!!!!


Fantastic!!!. True inspiration!!!


What a life. I read this book at a time I was going through some of my own problems and reading can’t hurt me taught me a lot about myself and how to keep going. The part that I could relate to most was where David didn’t respect the people around him because they didn’t want to work as hard as him. This happens to me at work and the booked helped me understand why I was like that with people. I was honestly glued to the book and nearly missed my stop on the train a couple of times because from start to finish you just want to keep reading.


Inspirational.. Absolutely awe-inspiring. Mad respect to this hero.


Perfect. Raw, clear, and engaging. Just what I needed to read. A real wake up to reality and the need to urgently get out of your comfort zone. Thank you Goggins. Another man changed.


Awesome. Give you actionable steps to improve and is a fascinating read! Highly recommend this book


Brilliant. I needed to read that, what an inspiration


Speechless. Best book I’ve ever read, gold in your hands.

Another hard worker

Gratitude. One thing this book did is to make me more grateful for everything. When you think you don’t have it your way , you’re working hard and feel like giving up , think about David m***uckin Goggins .

Young jedi 7

Can’t hurt me. Amazing life story! A must read!


Changed my Life. Amazing book that changed my perspective on hard ethic and determination. Goggin’s story helped inspire me to reshape and re-evaluate myself, allowing me to set goals and work towards them. His story is very real and relatable, in a way I believe everyone will be able to find common ground on. He overcome hardships common to many people in everyday life on his journey to ironically be uncommon amongst the uncommon. His will power and ideology motivated me to new levels and continues to do so. For that I will always be thankful. Thanks David, Stay Hard!


Brutally aunist, Inspiring!. Great story and very inspiring, well worth the read that will make you look at yourself to stop lying to yourself and change something for the better.


Incredible from start to finish. Words can describe this book. A life changing read.


WOW!!!!!!!!!. Absolutely incredible and inspiring. This man has literally changed my life by helping me to callous my mind and taught me so much. I will always be in your debt mr Goggins. From the bottom of my heart thank you sir.


Can’t hurt me. A great insightful book into the mental toughness of someone who care from nothing to achieve some remarkable things as a navy seal and ultra endurance athlete.

Annie Murf

MUST READ. This guy is something else!


Inspiring and amazing for the mind.. I don’t read books but got told about David’s story, so I began to read and wow, I got hooked massively and could not stop reading. Truly inspiring and motivational as hell. I would recommend this to everyone.


Best book ever. Best book ever!


Changed my thought process. Coming from hard times and having learning difficulties this book has changed my thought process on how to be the master of my pain and my world! ......Get Hard!


Amazing captivating Read. A great insight into David Goggins life who is able to tell his story in a way which teaches principles of life which we can choose to take or not take. It is out across in a transparent way which may be too honest for some. If you are able to delve into the read and see the principle being taught, then this book will be perfect for you!!,

Great book!. A true story of what the mind can conceive it can achieve. From a difficult childhood to one of the top members of the U.S. SEAL team, he is an inspiration for all of those people who are ‘soft’ individuals and want to change their status to a hardened, focused and resilient man/woman.

Andy Finley

Life-Changing, Sincerely.. I read this book in five days, and I’m not a reader. This speaks to the entertainment aspect. It grips you from the beginning and does not let you go. I was sad when I finished the book. I started making changes he describes immediately and two weeks later, can happily say that I’ve lost ten pounds and was offered a new position making substantially more money…all because I read this book. It should be a requirement that everyone must read it. PLEASE do yourself a favor and READ THIS BOOK! It will change your life.


Stay hard!. David Goggins is an inspirational American hero who defied the odds to create an uncommon life. The book conjured a wide range of emotions and was a joy to read. Thanks, David, for your service — to our country in the USN — and to society by writing this book. Pleasure to read.


Great book. Must read.


Amazing!. Wow….just wow!


A whole new level of intensity. Goggins was hammered like a blacksmith to iron early on an came out a hardened warrior like no other. Inspiring read, inspiring man. Total Respect


Inspiring Read. What a great and inspiring book. Just thinking about it makes me go harder every day. @jamesleewallnyc

Can’t Hurt Me. Life changing book!!


Can’t Hurt Me. It’s an amazing read not a boring page in the entire book!! I was so impressed by the flow of the book. I’d endorse it to anyone from a teenager to a person who’s a senior citizen 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽


Goals. This book has me thinking that I have left many possibilities on the table. But my goal is to be mindful going forward…


Inspiring. This book was a wonderful read to get me help propel me through this … in my life. Even though I brought it in 2019, I believe everything happens for a reason and the message was right on time. While everyone may not want to follow the exact path David Goggins has they can still learn from his passion and refusal to quit. The story was captivating, the writing was great and I loved the challenges at the end of each chapter. Gave me time to read and process. Thank you David Goggin. I will and have recommended to many. If your reading this…. Yes, buy/rent & read this book.


BMF. BMF Great journey great read


Stay Hard. Absolutely sensational

Kat pucci

Life changing. I love his concept of callousing your mind. Keep going against all odds. People are gonna talk whether your doing good or bad. His upbringing is inspiring.


Outstanding. Hard to put down. Mr. Goggin’s story is captivating, infectious, and inspiring. His constant drive to be better is a lesson I needed to hear.


Title fits perfect with the message.. What an amazing book! Was eagerly seeking some sort of motivation to get back to working out and be as physically fit as I was while serving in the United States Marine Corps. This book has done just that! Will definitely read this book again for the added motivation. As I continue to progress and better myself, the question “what if?” Will continue to fuel my progress. Amazing work, and definitely recommend this book for anyone looking for motivation or just simply a good read!

Phenomenal. Everything you need for change besides yourself.


Great Read. So Empowering!


Great read!. Stay hard!




Motivating book!. This is an awesome book, very motivating and makes you want to be the best version of yourself.


Great read!!!!!!. I highly recommend this book to anyone that has ever felt unmotivated, lack discipline, and have seen more darker times than light. The author has literally gone through it all and illustrates how to become your best self from his perspective. This book truly makes me feel like my dreams are attainable and that I can do anything I put my mind to as long as I am willing to callous my mind and put in the required efforts. Once again, great read!!!


5/5. Awesome. Just awesome.

If your looking for a great read and a book that will change your life, look no further. Cannot recommend this book enough, it is phenomenal!

WHOA!. This has to be one of the best books I’ve ever read! While a lot of them are great, many books on the subject of self-improvement only push the positive viewpoint of things, which is effective in its own way, this book pushes you to confront the challenges and disappointments that always rear their ugly heads whenever one tries to make positive strides in their life with confidence and grit. Another effective factor of this book is how David Goggins uses his own detailed experiences to drive the points home and show the reader that they can push through it too. 10/10 is not good enough for this book. I’ll have to give it a 100/100 and will read it again in the future. I hope I have the blessing to meet David Goggins one day.


One of the best. By far one of my favorite books from this year


Inspirational. Great book to read! Very inspirational


Wow! Where do I begin?. This book is INCREDIBLE. I find a lot of his stories resonate with my childhood and the hardships I endured within myself. The challenges really helped me look deeper into why I am the way I am and why I am where I am in life up to this point. This book is an incredible read for anyone who is genuinely seeking to improve themselves and their lives. All of these lower ratings from people who are soft and don’t know how to grasp what was really important are very funny to read. Instead of bringing up how he ‘curses’ or why he does the things he does, try actually paying attention to the underlying lessons he is trying to teach you. 10000000/10 recommend This book to everyone

Can’t Hurt Me. No words… Just so much respect.


Inspirational. Most inspiring book I have read to date.


Loved It. Absolutely amazing! Inspiring to the nth degree.


Inspiration Not Only. Not only is this book inspirational but it makes you step outside of your comfort zone. The stories he tell with proof to back it up makes you realize the impossible is possible. I would recommend this to anyone who is ready to bet their life.


Inspired. Very inspired
