Can't Hurt Me Book Summary


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.

  • Phenomenal book/podcast/radio program

    By JayW2222
    First review I’ve ever given and never listened to an audiobook so quickly. Became a fan from his interviews on Joe Rogan and I’m glad I bought in. Kind of wish he was the narrator, but either way; the stories are insane. It’s hard to listen to them and not want to better yourself. No fluff, no empty plateaus. This guy has to be one of the baddest people of all time.
  • Can’t Beat This.

    By Kungfushus
    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. Taurus Bailey, Attorney At Law,

  • Kill your old self

    By DantePaulina
    Goggins does a great job of instructing his readers on the gameplan of killing off your old self. We all have excuses! The day that we strike down these excuses will be the first step towards freedom. Goggins does also a great job of being transparent with his struggles and how he became his better self. You got to read this book to see where you can improve in your life.
  • My Favorite Mental Toughness Read to Date.

    By classroomrap
    Chief Petty Officer Goggins is the definition of mental toughness in every aspect of the word, to put it simply he makes Chuck Norris jokes sound like child’s play, through living a lifestyle of never settling for less than excellence CPO Goggins is an absolute beast and a master of the human mind. No one motivates me like Goggins. A must read for anyone looking to better themselves or get an insight into special warfare - BUD/S, the Teams, Delta Selection, DEVGRU.. not to mention many 100+ mile races Goggins completed.. if you want a story of overcoming extreme obstacles or triumph in the face of certain failure this is the read for you.
