Don't waste your time

A terrible summary. It's just random portions of the book with no points. I will be requesting a refund.

☄🚽Regretful Waste of money

● A DEFINITE REFUND ● From the very start, this is an extremely poor narration of David Goggins book Can't Hurt Me. The narrator's voice sounds like a robotic autotune as you might hear on a YouTube video. No inflection or emotional resonance. Just a robotic DEAD voice. Dont waste your time or your money. ☆ZERO Star Worthy.

detailed summary

This is perfect for one sitting. I care a lot about what i listen to , the intro attracted me to the book. I find it a lot more beneficial to listen to this book if you cant get the original book. its a detailed summary

Huge disappointment

I listened to the full book and enjoyed it and benefited from it immensely. I thought perhaps the summary would be a way to revisit the benefits periodically without taking the time to read the whole book again. Boy was I wrong. Not only was the mechanical style of the reading annoying, the diction was changed so radically that it practically destroyed much of the message. Waste of time and money.

NOT a summery, abridged, badly.

Jarring transitions and references to parts of the book that have been removed. This seems like an excellent book, but a bad “summery”. I plan to buy the full book.

worth recommending

its a good thing i have listened to this myself . I have heard many things about this guy but i just discovered that what i thought i knew was nothing compared to the facts stated here. This book helped me understand the story better. its a well narrated summary, detailed and on point. its worth recommending .

A dreadful version of a great story

Having already listened to the full 'cant hurt me' biography I wanted a quick something I could pick up and be inspired by from the original. This is not it. The voice work is robotic and could even be a piece of software reading it. The story and the actual words have been changed so it now makes no sense as anything. Don't buy this and instead listen to the full original version.

listen!!!

David Goggin's throws the door open on pain, evil, darkness, the worst and yes, the best of humanity, and the strength of the human soul. If you are looking for a book that will heal, stretch, inspire, and dig into the corners of what it takes to persevere and overcome in a messed-up world, this is your book.
