[Book]David Goggins, Can't Hurt Me
 
https://davidgoggins.com/wp-content/...book_image.jpg


I discovered this man by watching a few Joe Rogan podcasts over the last month or so. I purchased this book and cannot put it down.

Basically the book covers his life from growing up with a physically and mentally abusive father, the racism he experienced growing up in small town Indiana, learning disabilities etc.

He went from being 300 lbs and spraying for Cockroaches for Ecolab to becoming a US Navy Seal, Ultra Marathon Runner and at one point holding the World Record for Pull-Ups.

Very inspiring story. :kimblair:

David Goggins (born February 17, 1975) is an American ultramarathon runner, ultra-distance cyclist, triathlete, motivational speaker, and author. He is a retired United States Navy SEAL and former United States Air Force Tactical Air Control Party member who served in the Iraq War. His self-help memoir, Can't Hurt Me, was released in 2018.

After several of his friends died in Afghanistan in a helicopter crash in 2005 during Operation Red Wings, Goggins began long-distance running with the aim of raising money for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. The Foundation gives college scholarships and grants to the children of fallen special operations soldiers. Competing in endurance challenges, including the Badwater Ultramarathon three times, has enabled Goggins to raise more than $2 million for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.

But there have been other Navy SEALs who have also been Army Green Berets.

Got the Dave Goggins book yesterday from my local library. Finished reading it today and give it a C+. His eary life was interesting and his military schools to include the Army Ranger school, in which he lost 54 lbs, during the 69 day course. The rest was a bit of a bore.:shots:

The following is a great read. I give it an A. All Secure by Tom Satterly :seasix:

"Tom Satterly is a highly decorated combat veteran who was portrayed in the Oscar-winning 2001 film Black Hawk Down. He served in the Army twenty-five years, twenty in the nation's most elite and secretive special operations unit. He has led hundreds of missions, including some of our nation's most important special operations campaigns."
