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.

    And we should all aspire to be as mentally tough as this cat is. I know I am working in it now. Thanks for the effort you put into this book. I needed it.

    This reads like fiction. I found myself laughing at times due to the incredulous life experiences of this truly unique human being. I’m inspired by the example he has set. I hope I can capture just a sliver of the secret sauce he has shared. I’m inspired by the example he has set for all of us.
  • Thank you David

    By Jeromy Zajonc
    Just listened to the audiobook. Outstandingly honest. It’s already inspired me to open my eyes more to the guy in the mirror, to face the truth, to stop being complacent and to push for more from myself. I’m excited to see what life has in store if I let my real self loose and “get after it”. Much respect, Mr. Goggins. Jeromy Zajonc
  • Life changing experience

    By Jackie Bouvier
    This book kept me on my toes every step of the way. But most importantly, it continuously taught me how to stretch my mind beyond my imaginary breaking point. I will never be the same because of David. He’s life experience has blessed my life and for that I bless his life. I thank God he decided to share his growing and healing journey with me. Because it came to challenge me at the right moment in life. What you learned I will put to the test, but in my life and at my pace. Thank you! I have recommended this book to everyone I know. God bless you!
  • Excellent BOOK

    By Juan David C
    Learning from David’s story is empowering and inspiring. David’s story reminds us of how we are the agents of change. We are the ones who have to and should seek change. His outstanding discipline is one the most important aspects that we should learn. Having the the right discipline and right habits success will only be the outcome. Thanks David.

    This book challenged me in ways that I guess I’m just now ready to confront. It was a divine appointment for me. It’s exactly what I needed to hear at this juncture of my life. I accept the challenge David. I choose to fully explore the answer to the question, “What is possible for me?” for the rest of my life. I am so grateful to have found and read this book.
