Description

What Doesn't Kill Us, a New York Times best seller, traces our evolutionary journey back to a time when survival depended on how well we adapted to the environment around us.

Our ancestors crossed deserts, mountains, and oceans without even a whisper of what anyone today might consider modern technology. Those feats of endurance now seem impossible in an age where we take comfort for granted. But what if we could regain some of our lost evolutionary strength by simulating the environmental conditions of our forbears?

Investigative journalist and anthropologist Scott Carney takes up the challenge to find out: Can we hack our bodies and use the environment to stimulate our inner biology? Helping him in his search for the answers is Dutch fitness guru Wim Hof, whose ability to control his body temperature in extreme cold has sparked a whirlwind of scientific study. Carney also enlists input from an army scientist, a world-famous surfer, the founders of an obstacle course race movement, and ordinary people who have documented how they have cured autoimmune diseases, lost weight, and reversed diabetes. In the process he chronicles his own transformational journey as he pushes his body and mind to the edge of endurance, a quest that culminates in a record-bending 28-hour climb to the snowy peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro wearing nothing but a pair of running shorts and sneakers.

An ambitious blend of investigative reporting and participatory journalism, What Doesn't Kill Us explores the true connection between the mind and the body and reveals the science that allows us to push past our perceived limitations.

Awesome book

What did you love best about What Doesn't Kill Us?

I'd heard of Wim Hof already however, I realized that Scott Carney used Hoff as an anchoring idea to then launch off in a number of different directions around the idea of tempering your body/mind to endure discomfort.

What was one of the most memorable moments of What Doesn't Kill Us?

The trek up Kilmanjaro was a very memorable chapter. I won't spoil the story but suffice it to say it was a very human moment to realize that even 'hero's' have ego's and are prone to being self centered.

Have you listened to any of Scott Carney’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No but it has made me intensely interested in learning more. I appreciated the fact that Scott showed that a regular guy can put these ideas and techniques to use and have some significant benefit.

Any additional comments?

There are a host of podcast episodes out there on Wim Hof, Brian Mackenzie, and Laird Hamilton among others. More than enough fodder for someone interested in learning more.

Entertaining and Inspiring

Loved this

Listened to the whole thing in 3 days of house painting. Scott connects the dots between methods taught by Wim Hoff and some of the most inspiring athletes and teachers in the health and fitness space. He brings his humble character to make this incredible journey accessible to the rest of us mortals and dispels his own healthy scepticism.

it is an intelligent exploration into reclaiming the innate capacity within an ordinary human that put his life on the line.

Thank You Scott.

Inspirational!!

The structure of the storyline of this book made the point of how beneficial mastery of specific physical and mental techniques are to achieve a robust physical capacity without a major time commitment. I am convinced and perhaps seduced. Well done

Weak science with narrative

This story is supported by weak evidence and essentially is a narrative of the authors journey to changing his physiology and him climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. Here is the jest of the book: breathing more elevates your oxygen saturation, exposure to cold burns more kilocalories and provokes your body to create more mitochondria.

Good listen

New to the theme? then your in for a treat.

If you are fully aware of WIM HOF, and coldwater treatment etc.. then this wil be slightly boring, especially the last 5 chapters. theres some cool history in here, talking about different wars, and how climatization were a critical factor.

Very good report on the Wim Hof method

How to hack you body, its all there. All that is left is to find some cold water to practice the method yourself.

Excellent book!

I really enjoyed the book and clarity at which the author read it. This book was the validation that I was looking for after reading and listening to many sources on cold exposure and focused breathing. I had an expectation based on listening to an interview with the author before purchasing. My expectations were exceeded with the product. Well done.

correlation is not causation

I checked out this book Because of its introduction to Colf therapy for personal development: physically, mentally, emotionally, and as an immune suppressant or autoimmune conditions. It is an excellent introduction to those things along with an ongoing narrative. It is based on evolutionary theory which I'm willing to listen to and consider Arguments for but give me good science and don't talk about science that you don't really understand. I do teach biology and some Liberties were taken in connecting biological processes to assumed evolutionary origins of those processes. In addition, I was not interested in the authors connection to Evolution and global climate change. That's not what this book was about. I can buy and read books about that. Stay on topic. Because two things appear to be happening at the same time does not mean one caused the other, correlation is not necessarily causation. It is false logic to assume that because things are happening at the same time that one must have caused the other. Provide evidence if you're going to make that assertion rather than assuming I'm going to agree with that conclusion. The author introduces us to several good programs related to cold Therapy and Fitness in general. I'll probably listen to it again because I now own it on audio. But, the topic wondering does not rate the full five stars.

Amazing and it works!

Great book. Great method. I've started cold therapy and breathing meditation and without hesitation can confirm that something is definitely at work. I feel more alert, have lost weight, and have increased work capacity. I'll be listening again and recommending this book and Wim Hof method to anyone that will listen.

Not recommended

This book is unnecessarily long. The author tells success stories of other users of the Wim Hof method, proceeds to criticize their results and at the end tells his own story which he then does not criticize. Rather he attributes his success to himself.
The author strikes me as unlikeable and makes this book a drag to go through. The structure is also a bit of a mix-up. You will get some interesting questions to which you will only get the answer an hour or more later. In-between you will find some unrelated things.

Actionable content is sometimes hidden in the stories so it is encouraged to listen to the whole thing (even though the author's climbing story is utterly unnecessary).
The Win Hof Method is mostly packed into the first few chapters for which I commend the author and the first few hours are very interesting and well written but as the book goes on I found myself getting annoyed at the author for his structural choices and his attitude towards the people he encounters and gets to work with.

So in conclusion,
I'd recommend the book by Koen De Jong instead. Shorter, more concise, and just as good if not way better.

Nice book about self optimization

Wim Hof is well known already, he seems to be a freak of nature but I am pretty sure everyone can make it. It just takes plenty of exercise. But I am not planning to go so far. For me it's a great book, because it delivers me everything to know about the techniques and the medical opinions. What I like most, it's simple to breathe and to have cold showers.

Überzeugt mich nicht

Ich beschäftige mich seit viel Jahren mit Gesundheitsthemen, bin mit kaltem Kneippgüssen, Sauna mit Schneeengel , Luftbädern im Winter usw. aufgewachsen. Eben klassische mitteleuropäische Naturmedizin. Also war ich am Thema des HB interessiert. Sparta? Ernsthaft? Müssen die Kerle wirlich wieder zurück ins Neanderthal , um sich als Kerl zu fühlen? Nach der Hälfte des HB habe ich aufgegeben. Ich bi kein Arzt, aber ein paar "Anwendungen" und "Supplements" erscheinen mir nicht gesundheitsfördernd. Eine Sache ist allerdings historisch sicher: die Lebenserwartung der Spartaner oder Nenderthaler war nicht sobderlich hoch. Ich fand das HB noch nicht mal als interessanten, aber unsinnigen Ansatz unterhaltend. Ich konnte mir diesen aufgesetzten Männlichkeitswahn, Testosteron statt Hirn, nicht mehr antun und habe das HB deinstalliert.
