Publisher's summary

Whatever has happened to you, it is not who you are.

The world may know Chris Duffin as the "mad scientist of strength", but you wouldn't have ever guessed that if you saw the scrawny kid skinning rattlesnakes and chasing dragonflies in the early '80s. The story of his unconventional life will take you from gripping tales of murder, trauma, heartbreak, and survival deep in the Pacific Northwest wilderness all the way to an idealization of the self-made man - still flawed, but never broken.

In The Eagle and the Dragon, you'll follow one man's journey into the darkness of his own heart and witness the transformation of alcoholism, pain, and defeat into vision, character, and victory. Through Chris's powerful self-realization, you'll see how the human spirit can be either shackled by circumstance or freed from it.

Are you ready to walk through the fire and make your vision a reality? This audiobook will show you how.

Thought provoking

This book is such an amazing insight to a very influential person the world of strength. At least that’s how I got to know Mr. Duffin. After
reading this book I see he’s more than influential in the world of strength but also of life overall. The book was written well and conveys the story of a man, his life and his fight with many obstacles. Even though my life is so different than what I read about I can see the practical use of the guidelines presented here.

Amazing read!!!!!

inspirational as hell!

I loved how Mr. Duffin challenges readers to look within themselves to determine what matters and what they truly value in life. then he engages readers in provoking questions that stimulate action towards living a life based on values. this book helped me at a tough time in my professional life having started a business just before the Corona virus pandemic. thanks mad scientist for sharing your wisdom and vulnerable parts of your life.

A much needed reminder of what we can accomplish in life.

I can’t say enough that this was an easy read/listen, but the lessons sank in and caused me to reflect, and want more out of myself. This is a must read, even if it’s just a reminder that whatever struggle you have, it’s possible to get thru and not be defined by our past. Can’t thank Chris Duffin enough for his honesty, and transparency in his writing. Must read.

Inspiring

I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook. The first few chapters in the early years of his life were the most inspirational to me as I wish I had something close to but not quite as harsh to of an experience. This was a very easy book to listen to as you were always curious what was going to happen next.

Perfect timing

Seriously one of the beat books I have read this year. Granted it is only Feb of 2020, yet there is a beautiful power in what The Mad Scientist wrote. it has hit home when I needed it most.

Inspiring story with words of wisdom

I was pleasantly surprised on the way the story line of past experiences played a direct role in shaping the many facets of ones perspective and ultimately leading to choices that fill a deeper purpose in life.
