I read What Doesn't Kill Us by Scott Carney on February 1, 2019

This book fully titled “What Doesn’t Kill Us: How Freezing Water, Extreme Altitude, and Environmental Conditioning Will Renew Our Lost Evolutionary Strength “ follows the skeptical journalist’s take on a man who believes he can give anyone the power to endure extremely cold temperatures.

I like the gonzo-like journalism but it makes the claims hard to believe, especially when the ice training the journalist undergoes maybe just helps him climb a mountain because he is no longer out of shape.

Anyways, the first part is the story of Wim Hof, the “Ice man”, who has amazing feats of endurance - physical and mental - which can’t be disregarded easily. Whether he can teach these techniques to me is still debatable.
