    Description

    A New York Times Best Seller

    A Washington Post Notable Nonfiction Book of 2020 

    Named a Best Book of 2020 by NPR

    “A fascinating scientific, cultural, spiritual and evolutionary history of the way humans breathe - and how we’ve all been doing it wrong for a long, long time.” (Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Big Magic and Eat Pray Love)

    No matter what you eat, how much you exercise, how skinny or young or wise you are, none of it matters if you’re not breathing properly.

    There is nothing more essential to our health and well-being than breathing: Take air in, let it out, repeat 25,000 times a day. Yet, as a species, humans have lost the ability to breathe correctly, with grave consequences. Journalist James Nestor travels the world to figure out what went wrong and how to fix it. The answers aren’t found in pulmonology labs, as we might expect, but in the muddy digs of ancient burial sites, secret Soviet facilities, New Jersey choir schools, and the smoggy streets of São Paulo. Nestor tracks down men and women exploring the hidden science behind ancient breathing practices like Pranayama, Sudarshan Kriya, and Tummo and teams up with pulmonary tinkerers to scientifically test long-held beliefs about how we breathe.

    Modern research is showing us that making even slight adjustments to the way we inhale and exhale can jump-start athletic performance; rejuvenate internal organs; halt snoring, asthma, and autoimmune disease; and even straighten scoliotic spines. None of this should be possible, and yet it is. Drawing on thousands of years of medical texts and recent cutting-edge studies in pulmonology, psychology, biochemistry, and human physiology, Breath turns the conventional wisdom of what we thought we knew about our most basic biological function on its head. You will never breathe the same again.

    Does NOT coincide with Book text

    Although read by the author, which is often a positive, this audiobook reading varies significantly from the book text. Every paragraph is different in one or multiple ways, making reading along difficult. The audio version often skips entire paragraphs, leaving out key information. Annoying.

    Utterly fascinating

    I have a bad back and learned from physical therapist how to breath properly and it actually helped. Then I go to a couple different group events around food and wellbeing and sure enough they teach us to breath where I also learned of anders Ollson and conscious breathing. Randomly found out about this book on NPR fresh air. It is utterly fascinating and reinforces everything i learned prior to this. I couldn’t stop listening. I have back, sleep and brain fog issues. I definitely plan to up my breathing game.

    Waited 3 years for this, worth it!!!

    Terrific read, it confirmed a lot of theories of mine on breath, training, yoga, and love.

    Nestor owns the subject and communicates wisdom, insight, and healing through a sea of seemingly unrelated stories. Renegade scientists railing against the National Institute for Health's oversight blend into Swedish playboy scientists weave into eccentric British colonels who discover the secret to eternal life and youth as Ave Maria and Om Padme On echo against the walls of the readers riveted mind. Artists leave high society to live with tall, beautiful, orthodontically perfect native Americans who raise children better than homo modernis.

    I want to read this book slowly enough to crawl through the bibliography; it is a novel containing multiple reads and practices that will heal it's readers. Enjoy!

    Interesting

    While I did find parts of this book interesting. I felt like 'correct breathing' was being treated as a cure-all for everything. There is a disclaimer near the end of the book that addresses that and states that it won't cure all your ills, but I still feel that 'curing all your ills' was the premise of the book. I also felt that it ran on a little long. Did we really need a blow by blow of what it is like to stuff silicone plugs up your nose for an extended period of time? And was anyone surprised that this was a bad thing to do for your health?

    EXCELLENT read, entertaining AND informative

    I can't say enough about this book or its author, James Nestor. I heard him talk on the NPR podcast Fresh Air, and was really interested in what he had to say about breathing, how it really is a lost art, and how throughout ancient history people always took breath into account in everyday life and even healing practices - something that we modern day people don't even think of, maybe for their whole lives. I bought the audible book and have listened to it three times in a row, and know its a book I will keep coming back to. The message is amazing, especially for someone who deals with modern day illnesses (autoimmune) and anxiety. He approaches the topic very scientifically, but also with entertaining anecdotes about each sub-topic, there were several jaw-drop moments for me. He also has a GREAT voice, and is really nice to listen to! Honestly, he just seems like an overall great guy, like someone you'd like to meet or get to know. I have started incorporating a few of the breathing exercises into my daily life, especially the slow breathing, and I can immediately notice a calming effect and reduction in my anxiety. I would give 10 stars if I could.

    Scientific Book

    I found this very interesting. I had been doing the very first steps of Wim Hof's breathing exercises, and this book gives me some more understanding into what is going on. It also gives a lot more information. I am going to listen to this book more than once because there is a lot of things I want to remember.

    What a fascinating story 🌟

    As a writer, yoga teacher and breath coach, I’m beyond IN-SPIRED and impressed. 🙏🏻 This book is truly a piece of art. 📔 I will refer back to it - again and again. 🎧 Thank you so much, James Nestor, for putting down the hours, the hard work and all of the uncomfortable breaths it took to create this masterpiece. I truly appreciate it.

    So worthwhile!!

    The book is great!! Highly recommended. I loved the mix of historical as well as modern information to show us what should be and perhaps is obvious, breathing is important. Left me asking, why aren’t we putting more emphasis on breath!!?

    quackery

    So many things here are wrong and silly it’s hard to know where to start. Very disappointing. I’d certainly like to believe some of this stuff but the explanations proposed are totally bogus to gross misinterpretation of questionable “experts”. The author (reads his own work here) can’t pronounce basic medical terminology, which is forgivable, but demonstrates he wrote this from dr google rather than speaking to a person. It’s obvious that they didn’t get a medical professional, or a high school biology student, to fact check it when he started talking about how venous blood is blue. This poor review is coming from an engineer and medical professional and athlete, with an interest in the purported subject matter. Do not waste your money/credit on this short fluff.

    Atemberaubend

    James Nestor hat mein Leben in der Woche des Hörens wahnsinnig bereichert. Es war so spannend, dass ich oft die gesamte Mittagspause raus bin um zu Hören und zu Atmen. Technisch ist das Buch ganz großes Kino, die verschiedenen Pulmonauten, der historische Kontext und die Wissenschaft werden so wunderbar verbunden, dass es immer eine Freude ist weiterzuhören. Es gibt keine Passagen die sich ziehen.
    Leider fällt das Buch am Ende etwas flach. Die praktischen Implikationen des Gelernten werden sehr kurz abgehandelt, alles endet etwas schal mit dem Yogi-Prana und dem ungelenken Versuch es wissenschaftlich einzuordnen. Hier hätte man das Thema vertiefen oder weglassen sollen, in dieser Form schadet es dem Buch meiner Meinung nach eher.
    Trotzdem ein Augen öffnendes Buch, das jeder gelesen haben sollte!

    A life saver and game changer

    In 15 years of dealing with depression I have found nothing more helpful and practical than the methods described here.
    On top of that:
    Great overview, well written, fine journalistic approach.
    I very much enjoyed the author being a seeker and sceptic both.
    The book that made 2020 endurable and manageable.

    Breathing is totally underrated

    I read this after I saw Joe Rogan post it on his podcast and I always knew I am not a good breather. After this book I finally manage to put together how the breathing techniques can influence our bodies and minds and more over that there are many different types of techniques that can each be used to induce a certain state.

    Great book!

    Amazing old knowledge revisited

    I feel like this is a must for schools! Or for anyone, actually :) There is so much knowledge about the most fundamental aspect of our lives - the breath! And how many of our inner systems and how much of our well-being is interconnected with this source of energy! It is a fun and exciting read! Enjoyed every minute and would highly recommend it (and am doing so).

    Just as undervalued as breathing

    This book literally feels like a breath of fresh air... giving not only practical ways to improve breathing at the end of the book, but also stating the theory and origin behind every implication. Still there is so much more to learn about breathing..and this book has given me the perfect introduction. Strongly recommend!

    Well read audio-book
    Perfect for everyone that wants to get into the art of breathing.
    The autor has a good way of combining background information with knowledge you can use in everyday life. The background informations provided make it easy to look something up if you are interested in the history and science of Breathing.
