Summary

Bowhunter and ultramarathoner Cameron Hanes narrates his audiobook with guest appearances from Joe Rogan and David Goggins. Listen in to push beyond your physical limits and improve yourself by following Hanes's lifelong philosophies and disciplines. 

“It’s all mental.”

I say this all the time, and it’s true.

If you believe you can do it, you can.

We all have virtually limitless potential.

Our bodies are capable of so much more than what we ask of them.

Take off the mental handcuffs, get out there, and start on your way today.

What is your passion? You can become better at it.

Committing yourself to fitness only fuels your beliefs.

You gotta believe to achieve.

Cameron Hanes discovered his true passion for bowhunting when he was twenty. Inspired by the physical challenges of stalking elk in the Oregon wilderness—traversing mountainous terrain, braving erratic weather, and evading his quarry’s even more dangerous predators—he began an ever-evolving journey of self-improvement. To become the best bowhunter of wild elk, to the caliber he believed he could be, Cam realized he would need more than archery skills. He would need the stamina and strength that could only come from an athletic training regimen of long-distance running and heavy-weight lifting. And every day for more than thirty years, Cam has put in the work, building miles and muscles, pushing through pain with a single-minded focus on the only goal worth having—besting himself time and again.

Part memoir, part motivational manifesto, Endure reveals how Cam—a self-professed average guy—put himself through the paces to live the life of an expert bowhunter, respected writer, and family man. With discipline, sacrifice, resilience, a hard work ethic, and a belief in his own capabilities, Cam not only accomplished his dreams but continues to surpass them. There is no secret to his success except relentless determination and loyal dedication to his own self-worth.

If Cam can do it, we all can. Everyone has what it takes to endure adversity so we can rise above average, be the best we can be, and enjoy living life to the fullest.

A masterpiece.

This is one of those life-changing books like 'You Can't Hurt Me' by David Goggins or '12 Rules for Life' by Jordan Peterson.
Cameron Hanes is such a humble well spoken writer who truly immerses you in the story, you feel like you are alongside him hunting.
This book inspires anyone reading it to become the best version of themselves.
10/10.

One dimensional message packaged in negativity

The guy has worked hard and achieved elite status in his passion (bow hunting). To do so he has sacrificed a huge amount but believes it to be worthwhile.
The issue with the book however is that that is all there is. The same message over and over. Those that have a different priorities are failures. Anyone who has a different perspective is a troll, and although he doesn’t care about trolls a large portion of this audio is devoted to whining about them.
It’s not an inspiring book as it’s so smug about how the author is simply better because he sleeps less and works hard.
I intend to look for motivational books with a lot more positivity. I think I’ll try Matt Fraser next…

Completing this book is a feat of endurance.

Firstly, I'd like to say Cameron seems like a beast of endurance and an athlete beyond where most of us will likely ever know. I'll admit I'd never heard of him until he was mentioned in a Joe Rogan podcast and the subsequent approval Joe as well as a mention that he (Cameron) was also a contemporary of Goggins, no less made me eagerly look him up. I found this book and with a credit to spare a willingness to listen I grabbed it without hesitation to inspire me while on some long runs an training sessions.

Spoiler, it turns out Cameron likes bow hunting. He likes it a lot. Sadly he loves it to the point his continued references drove me mad. he literally never stops. For him, and I get it, there is an obsession that has proved to be a single minded source for everything in his life.

However, I am in the UK and not a hunter, things are very different here. And, it's worth saying, although I eat little meat, I'm not a vegan/vegetarian and I'm not opposed to hunting (for food) and Cameron in fact definitely put across a very good case in favour of getting out there and doing it or at the very least understanding where meat comes from and the levels of suffering (both for hunter and hunted) required to obtain it.

So, this review is coming from the point of view of a non-american, non hunting UK based athlete that has completed and competed endurance events. And, my comments are aimed at people like me and are not necessarily to be taken as criticism, just a matter of whether, if you're like me, there is anything you'll enjoy here.

Why? Well, if like me you're hoping to find some depth and perhaps nuggets of wisdom that I could either relate to perhaps, or be inspired by, I feel you won't get it here. Sadly, and this may indeed be due to my expectations rather than Cameron's story, I found it very lacking on all endurance related info or practical advice. Please note, I'm willing to accept that if you're in the US, a hunter and a manly man this book may be great inspiration for you and maybe you are the target audience.

For me, I'll stick with Goggins, Ross Edgley and at a push Ant Middleton for my inspiration because, unfortunately for me it was hard to get to the end of this and I didn't find anything other than a story of single minded obsession beyond the realms and needs of most.

Cameron's love of bow hunting was mentioned far too often for me... However, if you're into that you may love this.

Great story but hunting is a luxury, not a burden

He tells this story as if he was struggling, while leaving his responsibilities behind and hunting, weeks on end. Yes, you are correct, if we all ignore our families/responsibilities and go do what we love the most, we will be great at it...
that being said, I will be trying to use his discipline as motivation in my life

Misleading

It should be more clear that this is an auto- biography, and not solely about self improvement and hard work.

No substance in his writing

There was no substance to his stories and I gained nothing from the 75% of the book I listened to. I couldn’t take any more of his low rent David Goggins-esk whining about “haters”.

Garbage

Don’t waste your time. There is no substance and nothing to be gained from listening to this pretentious writing also read in an annoying tone that’s meant to sound deep.

Reader Warning

Disclaimer: If you’re content with life, things are good enough and you feel comfortable…this book isn’t for you, heck, it might even offend you. If you fall into that category, well, You probably won’t read this anyways. On the flip side, if you strive for more, you want to squeeze every last drop out of everything you do in life and are never satisfied…then this book will speak to your soul.

Not worth the time

Struggled to get through it. Mostly just Cam Hanes talking about the same stuff over and over. Could have been a better audiobook if read by someone else and the book needed more direction, felt like it lacked purpose.

Blueprint for achieving greatness!

I think those of us that follow Cameron Hanes have a general idea of what it takes to achieve that one goal that we are most passionate about achieving. sadly, few are willing to put in the work and make the sacrifices needed to succeed. This spells out what it takes to move well beyond average. The narration is excellent and the content is priceless. Well done with no holds barred.

A buffet of knowledge bombs!

I expected it to be good, but is was AMAZING!!!! I listened to it all with the first 48 hours of buying it. I love that the reader/author was/is a steadfast no nonsense model of a human. I hope everyone else enjoys this book as much as I did!

Monotonous

This book is a poor man's version of Can't Hurt Me, by David Goggins. As others have pointed out, it's a poorly written autobiography where the author practically repeats the same thing every 15 minutes for 7 hours.
