Very little instruction, too much personal history

For a book on breathing there is very little instructional information. This book is primarily an autobiography, reinforced with obvious and repeated “the world is is connected” insights that go on way too long forcing the reader to work hard to find the actual instructional information which flashes itself only for a few seconds before digging back into autobiographic insights. Said another way, this isn’t a cook book but a book about a chef you may not have heard of and what his philosophy on food. Consider an accompanying workbook so those who are looking to study and practice breathwork are not forced to listen in awe to a man talking about himself - or at least list this book as an autobiography so the reader is informed what’s ahead.

Great book!

This is a GREAT book. I never knew there was so much about breathing. I think everyone could benefit from this book. The author narrating this book was great to listen to too! He kept it entertaining & you could hear the passion in his voice. I started doing triathlons and controlled breathing is a big part of endurance athletes. I liked the book so much that I recommended​ it to my tri club. The breathing practices in this book help to relax you no matter what your doing.

Excellent Book

Anything that Tony recommends is likely to be good. I was a bit worried for the first hour or so as the book seemed a bit slow, informal, and lacking in depth. However, it quickly got better and continued to do so through to the end of the book. Overall, this was a very enjoyable read.

breathing practices and life lessons

From the guy who advises Tony Robbins on breathwork. This is an extremely well written and captivating book. Mr. Brule takes the reader through various breathing techniques - little did I know that for every situation in life, there's a way to breathe to maintain composure. Not only does he walk you through of HOW to breathe but he also he says why it's important and key details to take away as far as mental discipline and how a positive mental shift, along with breathing, is essential to a successful life.

Dan Brule has written a dazzling, yet grounded breath work guide that will convince you that the skills and tools to master your own breath are yours to develop. Just read the book and do it. "Start your day, with breath work", he advises, "even before you have coffee. He has a passion and enthusiasm in his voice that makes you say, "Yes sir", and begin to comply. Brule's voice has the snap of a military man, the lift of spiritual devotee and the comfort of a breath angel. Get the book. He will motivate you to start conscious breathing now.

A must read for every cancer care library!

My desire is to learn how to breathe so I can learn to sing and play the piano. Oh yeah, the breathe will facilitate my healing as I complete my cancer journey with success. Without chemotherapy, sorry I have to add I'm still alive holistically and this will bring me home. Thank you:)

Breathe a better expression of life.

I am grateful for Dan doing this work. I could say I received more from this book than I expected, but I expected it, and it was delivered. What I learned and was reminded of was applied in the moment. I'm even breathing as I write this.

I love when authors read their work, it feels real, accents and all.

Thank you Dan for your service to all, in doing so, you have become the master.

Fascinating and Insightful - well worth a listen

I read a review here that said there was not enough practical advice in this book. Personally, I totally disagree, so for the first time, I'm writing a review...

I think this book is filled with insights, exercises and rationale and I'm only up to Chapter 5. Dan's delivery style is a pleasure to listen to - a relaxed pace that's easy to follow, and a natural, fluent read.

I'm thoroughly enjoying it and learning a lot too. Doing some of the exercises while listening has also increased my knowledge and relaxation at the same time!

Not so much about breathing but more about a deep sea diver saying how wonderful he is . Not my cup of tea.

Inspiring!

Purchased the audible version and tempted to get the book as it has great exercises and probably easier to leaf through to locate them. Thoroughly enjoyed and making an impact on me and my patients.

Bloated and poorly organized

Brule goes on and on and on and on about his own life as much as the importance of breathing. The Audible version has no chapter information and the book seems poorly structured, as well as boringly written, so the many good insights here are buried in between long unfocused sequences. Definitely not recommended as audio book.

Really a great Book

I have read a few on this topic and this one is by far the best. You can understand the importance of right breathing and can start to practice as well. It will make you aware of your breath, and your life will actually change.

Narrators Voice! Aghhhhh

I genuinely wanted to listen to this book. But the Narrators voice is just unbearable and I’m continuously trying to endure it rather than enjoy it and always have to turn off. Sorry Dan

Who knew there was so much about breathing. Since reading this I’ve discovered it’s just the tip of the ice berg too. Highly recommended
