A beautifully illustrated exploration of cold water swimming in Scandinavia and around the world, with advice on cold acclimatisation, brown fat and both the dangers and the health benefits of cold water swimming. A brilliant guide for anyone contemplating this increasingly popular pastime.

Danish scientist Dr Susanna Soberg leads us step by step into the icy water and explains the “cold-shock response”, the massive endorphin rush as our body reacts and adapts to very cold temperatures through the winter season. Not only do our circulation, heart, lungs and skin respond positively, but our immune system, metabolism and mental health too.
