A have a mixed response to this book. I liked the format of the book. Regarding content, it pushes for extremes. The will power is admirable but the costs to relationships and the body are also real. It concerns me that vulnerability is equated here with derogatory references to ‘having a vagina’. There is reference to the author facing an new chapter of parenthood but no reference thereafter to his child or being a father. Everything is about using the mind to push past perceived limits, such as overcoming physical feats.
