Publisher's Summary

The only definitive work authored by Wim Hof on his powerful method for realizing our physical and spiritual potential.

Narrated by Olympic and world champion short track speed skater Apolo Anton Ohno.

“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)

Wim Hof has a message for each of us: “You can literally do the impossible. You can overcome disease, improve your mental health and physical performance, and even control your physiology so you can thrive in any stressful situation.” With The Wim Hof Method, this trailblazer of human potential shares a method that anyone can use - young or old, sick or healthy - to supercharge their capacity for strength, vitality, and happiness.

Wim has become known as “The Iceman” for his astounding physical feats, such as spending hours in freezing water and running barefoot marathons over deserts and ice fields. Yet his most remarkable achievement is not any record-breaking performance - it is the creation of a method that thousands of people have used to transform their lives.

In his gripping and passionate style, Wim shares his story and the three pillars of his method:

  • Breath - His unique practices to change your body chemistry, infuse yourself with energy, and focus your mind
  • Cold - Safe, controlled, shock-free practices for using cold exposure to enhance your cardiovascular system and awaken your body’s untapped strength
  • Mindset - Build your willpower, inner clarity, sensory awareness, and innate joyfulness in the miracle of living

Wim Hof is a man on a mission: to transform the way we live by reminding us of our true power and purpose. “This is how we will change the world, one soul at a time,” Wim says. “We alter the collective consciousness by awakening to our own boundless potential. We are limited only by the depth of our imagination and the strength of our conviction.”

Critic Reviews

“Wim Hof is a man of extraordinary talents who demonstrates great control of involuntary physiological functions, developed by learning to tolerate exposure to cold and by working with the breath. He has taught the Wim Hof Method to many people, and in this book he explains it in detail. Recommended reading for everyone interested in human potentials.” (Andrew Weil, MD, director of the University of Arizona Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine, author of 8 Weeks to Optimum Health)

“Wim Hof has inspired millions of people to use just their bodies and breath to heat, then heal, themselves of a laundry list of chronic illnesses. Dubious, you say? I certainly thought so, until I discovered the real scientific research from real scientists around the world proving these ‘impossible’ claims were in fact true. This book is a valuable guide to anyone looking to take better control of the health, heat, and untapped potential locked away within us all.” (James Nestor, New York Times best-selling author of Breath) 

“Wim Hof’s program has become an essential part of my daily regimen for self-care and grounding. I warmly recommend it.” ­(Gabor Maté, MD, author of When the Body Says No)

Outstanding book

This book I have been waiting for. I started practicing the WHM in July of this year 2020. At 58 years old I was looking for a way to get both mentally and physically fit. The WHM has helped me become more relaxed, and more focused. The method of breath work, cold showers and mindset are simply stated FABULOUS!! I have lost 23 pounds and have not missed a day of doing this since i started. I am currently in the second week of the ten week video course. The book helps explain the methods and the research and science that backs it. I git the book today and finished it today. I am sure it will be a resource I will go to often as I continue on this journey to better health and performance.

The Cold, The breath, commitment ... wow

Cold, breath and commitment has extremely changed my lifestyle and I have leveled up tremendously in all areas of my life. I don’t need energy drinks anymore and i don’t need to layer up when it’s cold. Such a life changing book and I will be doing it for the rest of my life. Thank you Wim for this.

Just try it

I’ve been doing WHM regularly for 9 months. It has made a huge impact for me. I recommend his breathwork to everyone. I hope you read this and commit to at least the breathing. Try 10 days straight first and see how you feel. Enjoy!

Disappointing

I had high hopes for this book, but the narrator was annoying in his delivery and the content was a letdown. Throughout the book Hoff asserts that his method is scientific and not some spiritual mumbo-jumbo, but he spends more time waxing eloquent about the “third eye” and “corona of light” than he does actually sharing his method. From what is written here, one assumes that the entirety of his method can be contained in one page.
