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.


  • Civilian learning to Stay Hard

    By Nickbnick13
    So much to learn before coming to the last page. Making my bed everyday was my first change. Being honest with my past the good and the bad. Midway through the book I felt stronger my day to day struggles almost became something I invited. Time wasted on waiting for the water in the shower to heat up is silly to me, and time wasted no more. Sores for the gym are nearly a after thought. An Amazing book.
  • A great book and a powerful story. I love how he keeps it real.

    As a veteran this book was a real eye opener. It took every excuse away and made me realize I haven’t even come close to tapping my potential.
  • Reality Check

    By ddaprizio
    This isn’t a book for everyone, but this is the book for people that don’t want to tip-toe through life. If you want to live to be more than an ordinary human, crash barriers, and catapult your mind into more than what you ever thought possible; this is the book for you. The book is astonishing and the message is real. What you need to hear isn’t always gumdrops and butterflies, sometimes it comes in the form of truth and discomfort. Thank you Goggins “The only easy day was yesterday” #canthurtme #takingsouls

    This read was intense. It was stimulating and it was hard to put down literally with so much action and more importantly anticipation. Loved it. Thank you Goggins were challenging and showing us how to channel our fears and challenge our self imposed limitations. Love you my man.

    Simply amazing! The brutal honesty that we’ve been missing for the past few generations has finally resurfaced❤️ Not everyone gets a trophy. I love how this book brings to light that you can find your own purpose. Your own self respect. Your own honor. This book will save lives for those struggling with depression and need for acceptance. A friend refereed this book to me, I rolled my eyes and said whatever. I don’t need ‘self help’. I clearly did need it because I’m noticing subtle things I do to limit myself that I didn’t notice before Thanks for a great book! From someone that never gives reviews...
  • Goggins makes you READY!

    By WillGman5611
    He doesn’t quite make you do anything...rather, he enlightens that’s everything is already within us and to quit searching for the excuses as an escape from the reality of the world. Get some and own it!
  • One of the best books I have ever read !

    Mr. Goggins redefines the meanings of the impossibility who once break one’s own mind games of mentality confinements, anything can be conquered and one can be its own capabler. He is a master story teller that lead me a way of personal struggles with his endurance , superior mindset and bravery. Once read its journey, I am hooked not by his six pack of handsomeness but the notion of his story so deeply in conjectures with my own ; He is a wise man not only show the way but also teaches the way of get rid of my ego and strength with his easy understand language to overcome my mentality; his writing is indeed “a cookie jar full of sweet surprises “.(David Goggins) Mr Goggins demonstrates the flexibility and complexity of human weakness and strength. His story telling tails are both powerful yet without judgement; his ability of mastering the struggle are both painful yet grateful to a leveling of self doubts to supernatural within his domains. Encouraging is so undermining words to describe his work on the impacts this book brings to me , upon ingenious on me . “Roger that “ I can do it even with the most exhausting yet powerful statements in summarize a great books brings to me . Mr Goggins has more influence than Jesus because his realm and is my personal guidance of free of charge .
