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)

Critic Reviews

"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)

Quote unquote

While the subject is interesting, the delivery is awful. The book lacks depth and and leaves you wanting more explanation of the methods. It mostly seems to be selling the idea but fails to expand and convince.

book is a bit short but enjoyable and fascinating

Everyone should learn these techniques and practice for longevity, stress relief and increased energy. The book couldve been longer but it was concise and informative.

Let down by the narration

Unfortunately, not a good delivery of the great work of Wim Hof. Contains all the information I hoped for but very tedious to listen to. I'm sure the narrator does not need say "quote, unquote" so often, and definitely does not need to quote unquote his own conversation.
The audio book has no chapters or display of progress and I couldn't bookmark or clip any points of reference. Of course, I could always buy the physical book I suppose.

got hear palpitations

the introduced method is great. however, is it medically safe ??

for me i consider myself as a healthy person...after trying wim hof method for 1 month i started getting heart palpitations ... i did echo and no issues found.
i am now taking medications after doing 24hr heart monitoring and my dr told me to stop this breathing method as it increases the adrenaline.

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.

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.

legit?

Lots of science being thrown around, I'm interested in seeing if this is legit or if it's a place of effect. I will start incorporating cold showers though, seems harmless enough.

The real deal.

The Wim Hof method is the real deal. I have been experimenting with it for several weeks and I feel great. I feel greater than I ever have.
Thanks

Interactive and interesting

I loved hearing this breathing and ice bath tale -

The story of Wim was sad and intense and the technical aspects of it seem to have tremendous positive effects... Now the hard question is how do I start that training. Self discipline is often difficult for me and without a local group I'm not sure I will stick to it or remember when it counts

Interesting introduction but poorly performed

The content of the book is interesting enough: it goes into plenty of detail about the technique and some benefits. However, for the most part it feels like blatant marketing for Wim Hof's seminars, and this is felt throughout.

The performance was also bad. There are some sections which clearly should have been edited out, and for the most part a lifeless reader.

The stories are great, but I'm sceptical.

This feels like marketing material rather than an explanation of how to follow the WHM.

good book as far as narration goes

as the title said, the narration isn't the issue it's the lack of substance of material to apply in your daily life, they speak briefly about breathing, cold therapy and meditation. They don't go into much detail as to how you should schedule a session of either type.
