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.

I usually loathe any type of self help book but THIS IS SO GOOD. This man has lived through it and tells his story without any of the usual self help BS and it honestly saved me out of a deep depression that had been ongoing for more than a couple of years. It helped me find a way to deal with all my anxiety and turn it into something positive for my life. This book quite frankly changed my life. I know how corny it sounds, it's not something I would just throw out there. I highly recommend this book and i'm so glad I bought it. I know I will listen again and again in the future. THANK YOU DAVID GOGGINS FOR WRITING THIS BOOK :)

Good, I enjoyed the story and the narration was done well. I have found a ton of books I've listened to recently quite boring and hard to get through however this one definitely wasn't. I'm sure most people would really love this book, I'm a harsh critic and I liked it and feel it was a credit well spent. You won't be disappointed with this one!

Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and night. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She's even started to feel like she knows them. Jess and Jason, she calls them. Their life - as she sees it - is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost. And then she sees something shocking.

Enjoyed the story and most of the narration although the voice of Megan and when she did that accent of the psychologist were annoying for me to listen to.

People often say, "I feel like I've been run over by a truck." Katie actually was. On a sunny morning bike ride in Brooklyn, 24-year-old Katie McKenna was forever changed when she was run over by an 18-wheeler. Being crushed under a massive semi wasn't something Katie should have survived. After 10 hours of emergency surgery, she woke to find herself in a body and a life that would never be the same.

I found the narrator's voice to be grating and hard to listen to at times. I finished this book but wouldn't recommend it.

Read by the critically acclaimed actress Maggie Gyllenhaal. When Esther Greenwood wins an internship at a New York fashion magazine in 1953, she is elated, believing she will finally realise her dream to become a writer. But in between the cocktail parties and piles of manuscripts, Esther's life begins to slide out of control. She finds herself spiralling into depression and eventually a suicide attempt as she grapples with difficult relationships and a society which refuses to take women's aspirations seriously.

I was surprised by how much I loved this book as I usually stick to non-fiction and reading to gain factual knowledge. However this book surprised me - I'm so glad I found it. Perhaps I connected to it having suffered from depression and anxiety for periods throughout my whole life.

I adore Maggie's voice and think she was a perfect match for reading this book. Also the writing was incredibly well done.
