    First of all, I HIGHLY recommend listening to the audiobook of this; it?s done in a very unique way with the author in the studio with the narrator and pauses in between certain sections where they talk about the book and the stories. It?s AWESOME! Second, I?m nothing like Da...

    A "self-help porn" book, a reasonably good one. The main idea I got from it is radical acceptance of your challenges and limitations. Self-pity is comforting, but rarely actionable. ...

    Who cannot admire David?s story? Anyone who went through hell as a child, faced and overcame seemingly insurmountable obstacles, pushed himself to insanely extreme lengths to achieve goals, and worked hard to help others?that man or woman is worthy of acclaim. He is encouraging, mo...

    This book will not get you motivated. This book will get you DRIVEN. I do read a lot, but this book literally and absolutely changed the way I perceive my limits. Fact that David Goggins is always referring to any injury not as "I was broken" but "MY BODY was broken" completely cha...

    ?The only way to guarantee failure is to quit right now.? This book will make you feel extremely guilty for skipping your workout. Ever. I think people who run the 26-mile marathons are out of their minds. I had no idea what levels of athletic lunacy are out there, like running ...

    Warning: I think I missed something and, as a result, this review will not be popular. I appreciate the fact this book recharged me. It forced me to take a look around and realize where I am taking short cuts. For that, I am grateful for the individual stories of grit and determinat...

    Amazing! Always wanted to know how hard is it to become one of the Navy Seals. David Goggins did much more. Not an easy read, not an easy life and not a book for everyone. ...

    Amazing life story. I've been soaking up all I can about David Goggins since I first saw him on Joe Rogan in August 2018. The audiobook is great: part book, part podcast... There are some extra stories in the audio version that are not in the printed book, which comes out on Dec. 4. ...

    I'm of two minds about this book. On the one hand, it's an inspiring story of a man who has overcome a lifetime of struggle and proved that you can do anything if you're willing to push yourself. In the first half of the book especially this was a message that resonated with me and...

    I have conflicting emotions about this book. While I'm in awe about what one person can do (physically, emotionally) and what achievements can be reached.. I'm also skeptic - there is very small mention of any relationships with other people. While I agree that each and every person ...

    I would have a better use of this story when I was about to leave my country back in 2014 but I can pull some tips 5 years later, the stories are Stoic in nature thus they will never get old. I missed the intellectual part in that book though, the challenges described where 90% physic...

    From time to time I enjoy reading an autobiography that inspires me and gives me new ideas for personal development. ?Can't Hurt Me: Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds? by David Goggins was a great choice. I found his life-story engaging and a great example of resilience and streng...

    This book was amazing and captivating. It was hard to stop listening to it. I'm glad I picked up the audiobook version because of the format and the extra bits. The story is a real-world example of the hero's journey. Don't get intimated by the length, time flies when you're listening ...

    While David's language is oftentimes chauvinistic, his message is positive and inclusive: Everyone can attain more than they know if they persevere through the suffering. In fact, it is consistent and deliberate suffering that allows humans to do amazing things. Through a series of ref...

    The reason I read this book was to learn what drove a man to successfully complete the rigorous, elite training of the U.S. Navy SEALS, U.S. Army Rangers and the U. S. Air Force Tactical Air Controller (TACP). As a teen Goggins failed the Armed Service Vocational Aptitude Battery of...

    This is THE BOOK if you want to conquer yourself, your mind and personally achieve what you're been meaning to achieve. This is THE BOOK if you want to become a tough ass motherfucker. I first heard of David Goggins somewhere in 2016 when Jesse Itzler promoted his book about living...

    David has an awesome story but his book dragged on a bit - most likely because it's quite preachy. His core message is gold though: unlock your potential through introspective, obsession and insanely hard work. Comfort is the enemy, always be pushing harder. If you think you're at ...

    I read this book in one day. Certainly is interesting. That said, I worry about the message. I agree with his point - to a point. But life isn?t always about just pushing yourself to the point of breakdown. It?s also about acceptance. In the last chapter, he does talk about t...

    As someone who experienced racism and bullying as a teen almost every single day, being called bunch of derogatory words and fighting all the time I found myself relating to some parts of Mr. Goggins story. Having to deal with all that at early age makes you wonder about a lot of thing...

    I love Goggins, so I picked this up as soon as I heard about it, and it went right to the top of my TBR. I wasn't exactly disappointed. The book delves into his life in ways that his various interviews and anecdotes could not, and all of that was a welcome addition to his mythos. Th...

    This book is the epitome of "pulling yourself up by your own bootstraps". A decade ago when he burst onto the ultra racing scene I found Goggin's story a powerful paradigm shift in my own life. It's a testimony to what's possible, an assault on absolutely ANY excuses you can invent, ...

    A gripping memoir, and I LOVE it when authors swear up and down like they would in conversation, but I suppose we can give Adam Skolnick credit for preserving that authenticity in the voice. I'm not down with the philosophy, though. This is the story of an elite athlete and a man wh...

    MUST, absolutely must read! I do not usually leave reviews - but this may very well be the penicillin of the 21st century. Also, his podcasts with Joe Rogan are excellent (just as 99.9% of what Joe puts on YouTube is). Edit: also the audiobook has extra passages - a kind of podca...

    This book is the most inspiring book I have ever read. It shows what a man is capable of despite mental and physical limitations. Although I wouldn?t want to define David Goggins, he seems to be a cross of CT Fletcher and Peter Attia. Having the relentlessness of one with the intelli...

    OH MY GOSH!!! DAMN. This book was such an unexpected treasure and I am shocked it does not have more ratings. Guys, you need to read this book. It was one of the best books I have ever read. I would recommend giving the audiobook a try. It is part audiobook and part podcast. In between...

    Right from the first time I read an article about David Goggins I get very intrigued by his achievements, I considered him superhuman by what he was able to do. But after reading his story I now have even more respect for David goggins, how he took drive from so much pain and suffering...

    Pain =/= gain. This book is only about pushing past pain, taking pain meds, and constantly being in unbelievably stupid situations purely because he thinks "Pain" = gain. There are multiple times where if others were not around to save him, he would have died. I gave the first...

    David Goggins has become the ideal in which I measure my own character and discipline. He basically has done what Jordan Peterson prescribes in his teachings in the most badass way possible. Wisdom and courage personified. ...

    I'm divided on whether or not I like this book. I'll preface this review with acknowledgement that Goggins survived a brutal, abusive childhood, and that kind of upbringing will certainly mold the choices a person makes as an adult. Through all of the audiobook, I kept thinking to ...
