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.

☄🚽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.

Life changed

The music changed the moment I discovered this book. My life has changed positively in recent days . Applying some of the advice in this book has paid off well. The narrator did a good job. I am impressed.

Don’t waste your time or money!

Complete waste of time and money. I doubt this summary audiobook is a reflection on the full book, which I regret not buying instead. Though the book credits a “narrator” this audiobook sounds like it was dictated by a computer program after being written via Google translate (meaning many of the words used don’t make sense in context). I only listened to the entire book so that I would have the opportunity to write a review and warn others.

Ehh.. Not bad

It’s not a bad summary. The guy def talks like a robot that you hear online sometimes. If you can get past that, it’s not bad at all. If you don’t like that monotone, robotic voice, then do not get this. Each chapter is around 5 minutes long, which is not bad to get a general idea of what the real book is about. Definitely gonna get the real book now, but I’m biased because I was gonna get it regardless of this summary. Listen to the preview. It’ll help you decide.

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.

work harder

This does not honor the David Goggins spirit. I like the clean language but not the accuracy of the summary or the robotic reading. Goggins the person is a testament to work ethic and this summary is not.

Great book, probably the best on motivation!

Love the book! Super-useful, gonna apply it now by writing the take-aways for starters. Didn't like the narrator's voice a bit and the way he reads, the connection within and between sentences sound artificial and his voice seems monotonous at times. This is probably the only book or the summary of a book that you need if you struggle with motivation and reaching your goals.

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.

Summary is shit!

Absolute crap. I won't be buying a summary again!
Wouldn't recommend to anyone. The original is far far better!

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.
