“This method is very simple, very accessible, and endorsed by science. Anybody can do it, and there is no dogma, only acceptance. Only freedom.” Wim Hof.

Ultimately the method is a combination of breathing exercises, cold therapy and commitment. This in turn will allow you to control your body and mind. He gives clear instructions on how to breathe, how to handle the cold, tips for your mindset, scientific information, health performance and spiritual awakening.

Known affectionately as “The Iceman”, the author is a Dutch athlete. He is a multiple Guinness World record holder, known for his ability to withstand extreme cold and his extraordinary achievements on ice.

The book also explores the life of the author, which is great as you can understand how he created his method. A lot of his exercises can be found on his website, but the book contains a lot more information and his back-story. You can feel his enthusiasm as he writes and you can tell he believes in what he says.

There are a lot of new things to try after reading the book and if you need help to get inspired then this book is for you. His message is pretty simple, you can do anything you set your mind to and his method will help along the way. It’s a simple but powerful mantra and for those who are interested in self care this book may be right up your alley.
