Very good material but frustrating in that the author sets up a tease and then rarely if ever dives into the details. We are left in a bit of a wild chase around different places to try to unveil the mysteries of breath but no substance in conclusion.

I have personally read various texts in breathing in the last year and have gathered more specific understanding than what the author finds in his ten years... Which to me suggests the author is really mostly trying to tell an interesting story as much as inform us on the depth of this field.

Exception to this is the final chapter where some exercises are explained in good detail.

But it is a fun book and yes, breathe with your nose can alleviate many problems.

Fascinating! There were parts of the book where I found myself holding my breath. James Nestor is amazing, when he finally goes through the door to the deep I was so happy for him. I'm way too fond of breathing to understand how a person could do this. But just imagine feeling echolocation clicks from sperm whales! The science is readable, the people are outlined beautifully, the love of water is palpable. Terrific book.

Very interesting exploration of breath and breathing and why we have a hard time doing it right.
