Overall the book is very repetitive, with the author stating the same facts over and over again. The book also has numerous typos and grammar errors. ICED! has a good message but it could be presented in a much better, more concise, manner. The author included some of the science behind why ice is a poor choice but more was needed to keep the reader's attention. I felt the author also "boasted" and took credit for the "end of the ice age." He is not the first one to recommend or implement a no ice protocol for injuries. He is just the first person to take it to the masses. Overall, I would just recommend watching the video about icing with Gary Reinl and Dr. Kelly Starrett instead of purchasing the book.

While I won't tell people that they should never ice. Reading this book has definitely convinced me that I am at least safe not icing and probably better off not icing, which I will probably now never do. I think clearly the alternative methods prescribed by Reinl would be a better method of sports therapy either way. I would recommend all trainers and athletes read this book as I do believe it does present better methods of sports therapy. That being said this was a hard book to actually read. Gary Reinl is one of the most braggadocios, preachy authors I have ever encountered. Half way through the book I was tempted to go take an ice bath just to spite him. There were a lot, and I mean A LOT, of repetitive rants in this book that I had to skip over to get to the content. All that being said the actual content in this book is first rate and hard to argue with. I would encourage you to read this book and either stomach or skip over all the ranting and bragging that Reinl does, because the information is worth knowing.

The contrast between icing and non-icing recovery techniques discussed in this book is interesting. However, it is unfortunate that the author cites few scientific studies, and instead spends the majority of the book rehashing his glory days as a self-proclaimed guru of non-icing recovery and preaching the gospel of recovery without icing, complete with irrelevant, self-promoting stories of his successes and meetings with high level trainers. If I knew the content would be that egotistical, I would have saved my time and money and read articles for free online.

The book did change my opinion and practice in icing injuries. As a science book, it is seriously lacking in structure, support and fairness. The same point is made repeatedly, often with little new information between repetitions. I did examine the medical literature on the topic, and there are papers that I would have liked addressed in this book. I hope that a more rigorous book will follow. Also, the name-dropping is annoying.

This is was eye opening to me. For years I've been icing my knees and a for years I still had knee pain despite seeing a physical therapist. This book made me question if icing was stopping me for getting better.

This book has truly opened my eyes to the truth that icing has absolutely no benefit in treating soft tissue injuries.
Thank you so much, Mr. Reinl, for your years of research and hands on experience in treating elite athletes as well as everyday people like myself who will never look at an Icepack the same way again.
Bravo!!

Get ready to be entertained and at the same time be provided with the knowledge to blow up a myth, one which has been accepted as a medical fact for over 50 years, and one which has caused great harm. Thanks Gary for leading the experts and the lay public out of the darkness of the ice age into the light of listening to and observing the inherent intelligence within each of us. What a revelation!

This 150 page book could have easily been a 20 page article. Very redundant. There are only so many ways to say ice is bad
