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.

Brilliant and clears up some questions I had

This is a fantastic production. The best of the 3 audio books I have purchased so far. It clears up many questions I had and shows how versatile this practise can be. It has life changing insight into the WHM.
Do the right thing and add it to your library, especially if you question its validity and effects. And if you are a sceptic, why not try the practise for yourself?

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.

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!

Time too embrace the cold.

This was a lovely book. i have liked Wim for a while now soo i knew i had to get this book. it introduces you too the Journey Wim has been on . and its shocking how such a simple method can cause soo many great things. i was almost done with the book yesterday, but was already inspired to test this out for myself. soo i did the breathing before going to bed. when i woke up i got straight into the shower. enjoyed the warn water for 2minutes, and then i turned it cold. i stood there for 1 minute, just breathing and letting the cold Water run over me. after that i sat in my bed and did 1 round of the breathing, and then i did pushups and biceps curls. and i shit you not, i struggled dooing more than 10 pushups before, but now i did 20 with ease. im now starting my own Journey to see what the cold and a little breathing can do for me...
highly recomend this book.

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.

Transformational

I have always been intrigued by this method and this man. This book did not disappoint.

As a free diver, I have explored my breath using various techniques, investigated many approaches to breathing for prolonged exposure under water and have been building my breath hold slowly over time.

This book gave me yet another view on breathing. However rather than focusing on how long I can hold my breath, it has shown me the positive benefits throughout my entire body, through use of these simple techniques.

Wim, your a bloody legend!! Just breathe mother fucker!!

Love Wim but not this book

It is really disappointing that this was not narrated by Wim. The American narrator does not suit the style of the book and it just sounds odd such a personal story being told by someone else.

The performance sounds too dramatic. The content was enjoyable but overall would not recommend.

Breath MF. Just Breath!

I totally loved this book. Easy to listen too and heaps of ideas to grab onto. Even if you think Wim Hof is a little crazy you can’t help but love him anyway. Whilst not for everyone, if you are on the Self Improvement path, don’t miss this one.
PS. Much easier to follow instructions for Wim Hof Method when they are read out to you than trying to follow along by reading them.

This method has changed my life for the better, mentally and physically. Everyone should read this book at least once in their lifetime, especially those suffering from mental illness and inflammation pain.

Likely won't add anything to your knowledge

I think very highly of Wim. I do his breathing exercises and take cold showers. I had hoped to gain some new knowledge, insight or practice from this book. Nothing new was shared that I had not already known from his many YouTube interviews and casts. If you are very new to his method, deffinitely worth a listen but otherwise not.

Definitely Useful but alot pretty far fetched

As an atheist and person of science.... A few things in here that I'm very glad to have read over and definitely have taken on board with breathing for exercise but as you get further on on the claims with what the breathing can help with get a bit too far fetched for my liking.

Very easy to follow.

Very good narrator and time flies listening to him. The exercises are easy to follow. It seems that the method comes alive.
