What Doesn't Kill Us: How Freezing Water, Extreme Altitude and Environmental Conditioning Will Renew Our Lost Evolutionary Strength
What Does­n’t Kill Us: How Freez­ing Water, Extreme Alti­tude and Envi­ron­men­tal Con­di­tion­ing Will Renew Our Lost Evo­lu­tion­ary Strength by Scott Car­ney
My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars

Enough ideas are con­tained in this book to fur­ther explore the rela­tion­ship of the human body and its direct envi­ron­ment. Vari­ety is the spice of life and expos­ing to vary­ing inputs improves the abil­i­ty of homoeosta­sis alto­geth­er. It makes the case for some rad­i­cal changes in one’s approach to the cold. Biggest les­son for me was just to trust the capa­bil­i­ties of your own body to deal with what­ev­er you throw at it, we are more resilient than we think. 

Not a big fan of Wim Hof, but at least he indi­cates the direc­tion in which fur­ther improve­ments can be made.
