I really loved hearing about your Journey Shane. I appreciate all you went through to be able to help someone like me. it's inspiring!
I really respect the intent by Shane Stott to capture the world of floating into an easy to read/listen, engaging, book. The problem with The Float Tank Cure is that it's too much of a first draft. While there are some great ideas presented in the book, the book is a little scattered in the way it tells its story and some of the ideas presented don't get the depth of exploration needed.
At times this book is more about dealing with anxiety than floating, which is ok. Shane's story is an interesting one and he gives some good tips on how to deal with anxiety in addition to floating.
While there are a few good nuggets here, there just isn't much here you can't already hear in a much more compelling and engaging way than in Shane's podcast interviews. Shane is much more animated in those podcasts and the conversations just flow better than this book.
I'd love to see Shane dive in (excuse the pun) and do a second edition of this book with more interviews with float professionals (he really only touches on two), more depth on what you can do in a tank, some tips for preparing before you get into the tank, and more coverage on what happened to bring floating closer to the mainstream (outside of Joe Rogan's Podcast).
At just over 2 hours, this is a pretty short book. Good for folks really interested in learning more about floating, but not as much depth for experienced floaters.
I love that the author encourages floating and gives us his positive experiences. Some of the book does sound like a commercial tho. Read it for the positive encouragement. Floating!!
Great book to introduce yourf to the float world. this will help you understand the benefited to floating.
