Publisher's Summary

Science has now proved the legendary Wim Hof method of breath control and cold training can dramatically enhance energy levels, improve circulation, reduce stress, boost the immune system, strengthen the body, and successfully combat many diseases. While Wim Hof himself has run marathons in -30 degress Celsius in shorts, swum hundreds of meters under the ice, sat in a tank of ice for 90 minutes without his core temperature changing, and boosted his metabolism by more than 300 percent, The Way of the Iceman documents how anyone can use Wim’s methods to transform his or her health and strength quickly and safely.

“After teaching specialized breathing techniques to SEALs for years, helping them focus, stay warm in the cold ocean and get centered in combat, I can attest to the authenticity and power of Wim Hof's methods. Wim Hof is providing a great service with his new book The Way of The Iceman by bringing breath training and simple, powerful health practices into mainstream consciousness.” (Mark Divine, US Navy SEAL (ret), founder of SEALFIT, best-selling author of Unbeatable Mind and Way of the SEAL)

What the critics say

"I am continuously searching for ways to expand my mind, body and spirit - Wim Hof and The Way of the Iceman have done just that! He shows us that human potential is limitless and we are ALL capable of anything we set our minds to.” (Lewis Howes, New York Times best-selling author of The School of Greatness)

“What fascinates me most about Wim Hof's method is the potential application for athletes.... [T]he science in this book shows that we can all amplify our recovery, maximize our pain tolerance, massively jack up energy levels and even learn to control inflammation...and it can be done without resorting to toxic drugs. In fact, the system outlined in this manual might just be the key to producing a generation of enhanced but drug-free athletes.” (Paul “Coach” Wade, author of Convict Conditioning)

no Hasselhoff haha

lot of good information especially like the breathing techniques since I learned some similar ones training in Russian Systema and they work so it wasn't foreign to me to think of adopting this method it actually makes a lot of sense

Unhelpful

Much less useful than the many YouTube videos on the subject. Narrator stumbles over foreign words and it's not edited out. The description of the breathing exercises isn't that helpful. Overall if you're interested in the method don't bother with this book.

Inspiring

I've been practicing Wim Hof breathing for a year, and after listening to this book, I am inspired to do more. I've made minor shifts to my breath based on what is shared, and it feels terrific. I highly recommend you listen to this book, then get the app and practice every day.

Good explanations

This book is great for understanding what are the effects on your body.

It shows how to perform the basic techniques which is good since those are almost all you need to know.

Short but effective, oversights off Wim Hof background, scientific explanation, exemples of how'd it helped some people and tells how to perform the techniques.

Little error in chapter 5 that has not been edited but overall good performance and intensity from the reader.

Can't wait for the new book coming out the 20th of October 2020 in audible.

Thank you!

Could have been one paragraph

Too much fluff. The book is over two hours long but the breathing exercise and cold therapy is covered in less than five minutes, the rest is fluff.

Just listen to podcast

I was hoping to get more instruction into his method, but it fell short. The book pretty much just said the same thing Hof said on the podcast with Tim Ferriss.

Another advertisement pretending to be a book

Seems to be a trend now to write a "book" that is actually a promotional for a course you will have to pay for to get the actual techniques the book is superficially about. They call it a book, I call it FRAUD!

No info you can't get in 5 min for free on YouTube

This book is so short it shouldn't be called a book at all. This is all covered in YouTube by Win Hof himself. So do not waste a credit or money on this.

More of an ad then a book

I am very interested in exploring the Wim Hof method so I didn’t need to be sold on it. This read is mostly testimonials and the origin of the method. They give you one starter exercise at the very end. I am going to try the exercise and take a few classes. If you are interested and short on time, I would jump right into the classes. No need to sell me something I am actively researching and looking to try.

No actual information just self inflated bragging.

Just self inflated bragging. No techniques are taught in this book. Self congratulatory piece of advertisement you pay to listen to.

Scientific info supporting WHM

The author takes scientific research and explains it in easy to understand language. Useful info if you are beginning WHM.

great read for beginners

it was a good read for those getting interested in the topic, but not for those who have experience in the breathing space. I highly recommend for those interested in getting started with breathing and understanding the complexity of eastern philosophies.
