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 US 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.

What an astonishing, humbling, and elating book. Goggins moves the reader from a hell most humans will never have the misfortune to experience, through countless moments of unimaginable success and crushing failure, to a place of hard earned peace and even communion with God. Every passage drenched in the authenticity and vulnerability that comes from having run every mile he speaks of.
I loved the realness and intensity of every minute of this journey, feel blown away by the completeness of the book, and wonder how many of MY fears I'll be willing to face to discover who I really am.
Explore this insane and extraordinary book.
