Can't Hurt Me : Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds - Clean Edition Kindle Edition
Over 2.5 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 this curse-word-free edition of 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.
"David Goggins is a being of pure will and inspiration. Just listening to this guy talk makes you want to run up a mountain. I firmly believe people like him can change the course of the world just by inspiring us to push harder and dig deeper in everything we do. His goal to be 'uncommon amongst uncommon people' is something we can all use to propel ourselves to fulfill our true potential. I'm a better man having met him."
--Joe Rogan, Standup Comedian and Host of the Joe Rogan Experience Podcast
"David Goggins lives out every goal, every dream no matter what. PERIOD. He's unstoppable. There's no limit to him because he doesn't live in a comfort zone. His mental and physical capacity are equal. Goggins proves that your body can handle anything if you let your mind keep up. There's no way to stop something or someone that doesn't understand the concept of being beat."
--Marcus Luttrell, Retired Navy SEAL, Author of New York Times Best Seller Lone Survivor
"Modern neuroscience is teaching us that the path to courage and success arrives through embracing pain and fear, not by avoiding them. If ever there was a real-life example of this, it is the story of David Goggins. In his unrelenting pursuit to self-conquer, Goggins taught himself how to tap into that elusive holy grail of human existence: the ability to rewire one's own brain in order to continually do better and actually become better, regardless of feelings, external conditions, or motivational state. Can't Hurt Me is the remarkable description of that journey and the capacity to leverage and better the mind. More importantly, it also teaches you how."
--Andrew D. Huberman, PhD, Professor of Neurobiology, Stanford University School of Medicine
"David Goggins throws the door open on pain, evil, darkness, the worst and yes, the best of humanity, and the strength of the human soul...and that's just in chapter one. If you are looking for a book that will heal, stretch, inspire, and dig into the corners of what it takes to persevere and overcome in a messed-up world, this is your book."
--Taya Kyle, Widow of American Sniper Chris Kyle, Author of New York Times Best Seller American Wife
"By the time you finish David Goggins's new book, you'll have kicked your victim mentality in the butt. Where you go from there is entirely up to you--as Goggins makes clear in this entertaining and poignant memoir cum inspirational how-to. As the man with a hole in his heart tells you, there are no excuses in life, only reasons to try harder."
--Jim DeFelice, Author of American Sniper--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Its nice, but then all the stories feel the same because he is going for the same thing only on a different level. Its a struggle to read. I think the book would have been better if it was shorter and covered about his childhood, how he lost weight, found his passion and finish it with him completing one of the best races of his life. Then in the end mention that he is still doing his thing and give us links! I think that would have been better book.
Have to say, hats off to guy for the effort he puts in everything he does!
David teaches how to grow, challenge yourself and know yourself better. He shows you the best values in human nature and what is important in life. He sets the direction to follow in a messed up world these days. One of the most important books I've ever read that helped me changed and achieve more in life!

Ich spreche nicht 100% gutes Englisch habe mich trotzdem daran probiert, da es nicht in Deutsch verfügbar ist. Es hat geklappt, Goggins schreibt zum Glück nicht hochtrabend wissenschaftlich und komplex.
An die deutschsprachigen Leser: Traut euch ruhig. War leichter als Harry Potter :)
I’ll admit that I thought this book might end up being a load of testosterone-fueled, macho BS, but it turned out to be raw, open, honest and heart-felt. His story is not just inspiring, but is also humbling. Like lots of people, he had a terrible beginning to his life, but turned it around. What I really liked about the book is that his message is simple - We all have it in us to do extraordinary things, but most of us choose the path of least resistance in the false belief that it will lead to the good life. Nothing good comes easy.
To be fair, David Goggins has taken on next-level challenges (and then some!), but I’m inspired nonetheless. And, to my mind, he is the epitome of self-overcoming.
Listening on audible you get a lot of extra content that you'd miss from just reading the book.
At the end of important elements to the book Goggins and the narrator go through and discuss in greater detail. Given the audio book a radio show type feel to it at times. I really like that. Hearing from Goggins himself break free of the typed text and add a human element to his story is fantastic.
Great respect to the honesty about himself.
Addictive reading with a personal challenge to each reader to unlock their own potential.
