Wim 'The Iceman' Hof shares his riveting story and his potent method for revolutionising your health and vitality - in his own words.

He's shattered world records. He's climbed the highest and coldest mountains wearing nothing but shorts. Most of all, he's shown us that these feats are not superhuman - but that each of us has the ability to be healthier, stronger and happier than we've ever imagined. 

Now you're invited to hear Wim Hof in his own words with The Iceman Speaks.

Wim Hof has captured the world's imagination with his extreme feats of physical mastery, which allow him to control his breathing, heart rate and blood circulation to withstand extreme temperatures. 

Through six audio sessions recorded at his home in the Netherlands, this revolutionary teacher shares the techniques of cold exposure and breathing exercises at the heart of his method - along with the riveting story of how he discovered a set of practices and principles that revolutionise our understanding of the amazing potential we all possess.

In listening to Wim Hof speak, you can't help but feel the energy, passion and optimism that have made him such a compelling figure. With The Iceman Speaks, you'll join him to experience an unforgettable story of discovery, hardship, perseverance - and most of all, a realisation of how much power we all possess to live an extraordinary life.

This original audio content is the perfect companion to The Wim Hof Method.

Love the guy but he loves to ramble

There was clearly no planning that went into this book. Wim just ran with it and started talking. He has all the makings of a brilliant story to tell here. Unfortunately because Wim just goes with whatever pops into his head he keeps jumping from one area of his life to another, you can never really follow the journey and he frequently repeats himself. Realistically, if the book was half the size it would be much more coherent.

That being said... I did finish the book. I just used it as my daily dose of Wim rather than following the book as a story. He has a truly captivating energy and his stuff really works!

Could not finish it.

Unfortunately Wim Hof rambles too much. Talks for the sake of talking and repeats himself frequently. This book could have been half this size. If it was, I might have made it though. The content is most definatly interesting, it just gets lost in the ever wandering ramble.
If you are time poor or selective with how you spend your time, this book may not be for you.

Life Changing.. and saving !

Having struggled almost 40 years of my life with mental health, various illnesses, sadness, and multiple suicide attempts, Wim Hofs pure honesty in this book is what has made me believe in life, love and myself, for the very first time ever. I listened to it the first time and sobbed through most of it, if you are open then it resonates to your core. I have it on repeat now and I practise the breathing and cold showers daily and I am for the first time in my life Happy, Strong and Healthy. Much love to all who believe, and those who don't. Everyone's journey in life is different but science speaks. Wim is a miracle... I am a Miracle... YOU ARE A MIRACLE... Eternal gratitude to you, Wim 🙏

wim is a Legend . saved my life .

at last Wim Hof what more do I need to say. I found this book at exactly the right time. just when I had almost given up not knowing how to deal with the darkness that had overcome me over the last few years. waking in a morning and driving to work thinking every day of a reason to carry on. knowing that things just wasnt right but couldn't find the reason for it. then this.. I could have skipped right to the breathing exercise"s but decided to start at the beginning. Wim spoke for the first few lines I thought who is this man his strong accent was at first a little hard for me to understand but then I was taken on a journey I just didn't want to stop. not another crap self help book. he sparked an interest in my mind. I listened to his tragic life story about his wife but there is something about Wim. how he discovered this. how he was ignored but just wouldn't go away. his mental focus is second to none.
I eventually got to session 9 and becoming the alchemist. everything I had listened to had prepared me for this. I did the breathing with Wim guiding me and carried on for the next 20 mins I opened my eyes and felt amazing. this is for me without a doubt I thought the dark cloud was lifting at last I have found the way I can remember thinking. and I still practice the breathing regularly the cloud has gone my life is back on track I'm happy and have many reasons to live for. it is simple it is incredible and it works. it saved my life and I will be forever in debt to the man who refused to give up and wrote this book to enlighten the world.

Life changing

I love the audiobook. I love Wim Hof. I love the method. Thank you Wim. You have made it all so simple. Since starting practising the cold showers and breathing 9 days ago I am experiencing a beautiful, clear, consistent flow of energy. I have been practising meditation and seeking truth for 14 years but Wim’s method has literally blown my mind.

Get the book and get in the cold water.

almost identical to the wim hoff method

Great book and very interesting, however, not worth reading if you have already read the wim hoff method as it is almost identical.

"Breathe Mofo's!"

Wim Hof is passionate and entertaining. I am a practitioner and advocate of the WHM. However, this book is very thin on practical guidance on the actual WHM, as well as repetative and long winded in explaining a very simple point: take cold showers and "breathe mofo's!"
