Publisher's Summary

Meet the man who redefines the impossible

He’s shattered world records. He’s climbed the highest and coldest mountains wearing nothing but shorts. Most of all, he’s shown us that these feats are not superhuman - but that each of us has the ability to be healthier, stronger, and happier than we’ve ever imagined. Now you’re invited to hear Wim Hof tell the story of his incredible journey in his own words with The Iceman Speaks.

A personal encounter with a trailblazer of human potential

Who is “The Iceman”? What inspired him to create his revolutionary method for reclaiming our human potential, and to attempt feats of endurance and self-mastery that were thought to be medically impossible? In these audio sessions, recorded with Wim at his home in the Netherlands, you’ll experience his odyssey of discovery, including:

  • Wim’s lifelong relationship with the majestic power of the cold
  • Love, heartbreak, and joy - moving stories from Wim’s family life
  • How nature, intuition, and rigorous testing led Wim to develop his revolutionary method
  • Turning skeptics into believers - how Wim astonished researchers in trial after trial
  • Shattering records - Wim explores what drives him to keep pushing the limits of possibility
  • Man on a mission - the spiritual implications of Wim’s method for ourselves and our world
  • Insights for anyone using the Wim Hof Method to get the most out of their practice

When listening to Wim Hof, you can’t help but feel the energy, passion, and optimism that have made him such a compelling figure. Yet as Wim says, “I am no superhero. I am no genetic freak. Anything I can do, you can do just as well.” The truly exceptional gift Wim possesses is his refusal to accept limitations - and when you listen to The Iceman Speaks, you’ll realize that gift is also within your grasp.

Knows enough science to be dangerous

The basic premise is valuable. Conscious deep breathing, reconnecting with nature, and stressing the body to adapt and grow stronger can lead to improved health. The claims make re: healing and evolution are hyperbolic like a panacea for all ills bordering on grandiose and narcissistic. There doesn’t seem to be any specific protocol re: breath work and adaptation to cold either. It was somewhat interesting to hear the story though it was repetitive and the narration was irritating. The author called this a body but it is really the author speaking/rambling about his life, adventures, and alleged science. I hope I can get a refund but don’t know if I can since Audible changed it’s membership to include titles for no charge.

very good book

My only problem was that some of the people who need his message the most could be turned off by his using the f word. in all other respects very remarkable, and very worth reading.

Great Insight to the Mind of Wim

This book is Wim telling his life story in his own words. Very enjoyable and a great story of an amazing life of a man who plans to live to 120. And I believe he can.

Although repetitive, I love Wim Hof's message!

Great guy, fun to listen to, although he does get repetitive.. As the title says, this is the Ice Man speaking and if you've ever gone through the numerous videos and interviews he's done online and you've noticed the same message being repeated, well here's more of it. I really liked hearing more of the details about his life though that were included here. The best thing I can say about these talks, which they are talks not really a book, is that he is like a cheerleader helping to motivate you to take on and commit to his practice and he really does get you excited about it. I believe that's all he really wanted to accomplish and that he did! To be honest, all of the essential practices of the Wim Hof method could be told to you in about 5 to 10 minutes. The anecdotal stories and the scientific studies mentioned as well as the extra background details of his life included here though are the main reasons I would recommend this audiobook. I'm pretty sure when he wrote "The Wim Hof Method" he just listened to his own audio here and transcribed half of it nearly word for word in parts and then added direct instructions for his main techniques. So if you've read or listened to that book you're going to hear basically everything that was in it again minus some of the more detailed descriptions of his handful of main methods. All in all, I loved both. If all you want is more direct descriptions of his techniques then get "The Wim Hof Method". If you want to hear his actual voice though and just want to get pumped about taking on his practice then go for this one. I have both and am happy with the purchases, just know what to expect. Thank you Wim Hof for your light and life!

access your life force!

Thank you Wim for your Self energy, your Light, your heart, your Life force pumping through the veins of this book. if you are wanting to feel good and experience a physiological spiritual change, then you can move through the breath, through the force of nature *cold* and be empowered by Wim and the story of his bravery to forgo the comfort of the warm ego and forge a path for us to collectively embody our spirits and breath into our own Light.

Freeze and Get High on Your Own Supply

The second book By Wim Hof this week. This one gives you not only an understanding of the Wim Hof Method, it also gives you a deep look into Wim Hof the man and his attitude towards life. Which is one of great passion for himself and others. I enjoyed this audio of The Iceman Speaks.

A must read to

Amazing book. If you really want to change your life, and unleash your true potential that is already seaded in each one of us you have to listen to this book. Open up your mind, be non judgmental and let it go. Happiness is not something that we have to chase all the time, is already in ourself, and this is the key how to start making it bloom.

Loved it & So fun to listen to Wim speak freely.

Loved the entire thing.. & loved listening to Wim tell his story & speak freely abt his views on life in general.
The only thing I didn't like (at all!!!!) was the interruption openings "by SoundsTrue" voice introducing ea chapter. So annoying.. but didn't diminish at all the rating of this bk.
