Look what I found on the weekend. I came across a new book that’s going to be released in January that is definitely CIVILIAN STRONG reading material.
From what I gather from the trailer (shown below), Investigative journalist, author, and anthropologist Scott Carney traveled to Poland to debunk a myth (that it’s possible to regulate your body temperature in the midst of extreme cold) and ended up discovering something that would set him on a journey of discovery and pushing his physical limits.
Carney starts off by traveling to Poland to interview and put to the test Wim Hof, a man growing in fame for his super-human-like ability to regulate his body temperature even when immersed in freezing cold water.
He then goes on to compete in one of the toughest cold weather obstacle course races wearing only his shorts and runners, and other mental and physical feats most people would think impossible.
Here’s the trailer for the book:
From Carney’s blog:
“For the last four years I’ve been investigating the limits of human endurance in harsh environments. After all, our ancestors crossed frozen mountain ranges and endless ocean miles without a whisper of modern technology. So why can’t you? This trailer is just a taste of the incredible journey that took me to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro without a shirt, meditating on the banks of snowy rivers in Poland and into the training gyms of top athletes, all to understand what makes us human in the first place.” – Scott Carney
The book goes on sale January 3, 2017 but you can pre-order it today on Amazon.com.
