Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

My hope is to inspire you to retake control of your body and life by unleashing the immense power of the mind.

The 'Iceman' Wim Hof shares his remarkable life story and powerful method for supercharging your strength, health and happiness.

Wim Hof has become a modern icon for his astounding achievements, breaking world records withstanding extreme temperatures and running barefoot marathons over deserts and ice fields. Most of all, he's shown us that these feats are not superhuman - but that all of us have the ability to be stronger, healthier and happier than we've ever imagined. 

In The Wim Hof Method, this trailblazer of human potential shares his simple three-pillar approach that anyone can use to improve health and performance - and see real results within just a few days. Refined over 40 years and championed by scientists across the globe, you'll learn how to harness three key elements of cold, breathing and mindset to master mind over matter and achieve the impossible.

Just another con artist

Wim has managed to effectively tolerate very tough environments, of this there is no doubt. This book takes a small, simple thing, and then extrapolates into idiotic pseudoscience and utter nonsense. Wim is just another new age guru, selling complete nonsense.

World changing

I've been practicing the breathing techniques for several months and have just started doing the cold exposure properly. This stuff is legit, it makes you feel great and you learn more about yourself. Hearing Wim's story, the authenticity of his motivation, and the scientific backing behind the method is really eye opening and inspiring. The more people who can gain access and start practicing these methods, the better off the world will be.

Win doesn’t narrate

I’m sorry to be negative however I had to stop listening after 45 minutes. I was so excited when this popped up for preorder as Wim’s voice and expression is so unique. Then to not have him or at least decent sound or a voice actor was very disappointing (I do appreciate the time and effort put into creating the audio book). I look forward to reading the book in full with Wim’s voice in my head.

Pioneering Read

Having practiced the Wim Hof method for the last month using the app, I was delighted to listen to this book on Audible and learn why I was feeling so much happier, healthier and stronger. This book could not have arrived in the Universe at a better time. Thank You Wim, you are one crazy guy who makes the cool cooler and who has brightened up the darkest of times.

A Difficult Listen.

Firstly, the audio quality is not up to standard at all, ambient noise is a bit much. Secondly, really wish they didn't settle for a middle ground interms of performance. Either use a professional ebook reader with no dramatic personality or have Wim himself read his book. This is somewhere inbetween and sounds forced. I often found myself drifting off and not following whats being read. So cannot recommend this unfortunately, and will buy the physical book instead.

Narrator!

Narrator was extremely irritating. Seemed to try and oversell every single line. Because of this it was hard to tell if the book was just poorly written or if he made it sound that way. Content wise, it could have been 1 chapter long to get the info you needed.

very interesting but a lot of pseudo science

amazing physical and biological feats, but overuse of the word science. I will use the method to attempt to withstand the cold better and will see from there

Stunning insight into a world we can all visit.

Easy to follow, well read, if you have watched any videos of Wim then you will know that the reader is conveying Wims character really well. Download the wim hof app, you won’t be disappointed.

Great book but should have been narrated by Wim!

I've been practising the Wim Hof Method for a few months now and have been enjoying the breathing sessions and tolerating the cold showers! The book is really great and goes much more in-depth which I found very interesting. You can see that Wim is really genuine and wants to help people and our planet. I was really looking forward to hearing Wim read this book but he's not the narrator which was VERY disappointing (hence the four stars). With Wim narrating, it would have got 6 stars!
