Childhood was nothing short of a nightmare for David Goggins.

He struggled with poverty, physical abuse and prejudice, growing up.

But he overcame his struggles and transformed himself from a depressed and overweight young man into a U.S Armed Forces icon and one of the world’s best endurance athletes.

In his book “Can’t Hurt Me”, Goggins shares his life story and how most of us only tap into a mere 40% of our capabilities.

For many readers, he has become the touchstone of discipline and character.

This book is not your typical self-help book- this is from a living example of everything the author talks about- from grit to passion to resilience.

This book will encourage you to push past your comfort zone.
