A good promotion for beginning floaters

Overall, I enjoyed this quick and easy listen on floating. I appreciated how grounded the author was. He definitely promotes alternative therapies (obviously) like floating and other non-pharmaceutical treatments for ailments. However, he is clear to say that alternative therapies usually work best when joined by more traditional therapies. For example, taking a prescription for depression is great for giving you a window of time to peacefully work on other skills - like getting to the root cause of depression and addressing it through talk therapy, exercise, healthy eating, etc. I thought he would be against medication initially, but it turns out he really isn’t. He is a fan of holistic treatments that address a whole person: including meds, faith, meditation, alternative therapies, and of course, floating.

I thought the delivery of the book was nicely paced and his speaking voice was easy to listen to. I just began floating and appreciated his book. If you have floated a few times, are enjoying it, and are looking to get a better in-depth review of the practice, I recommend this book. There is a bit of a sales pitch at the end to buy his company’s float tanks, but I don’t think it’s a detriment to the book or excessive in nature. I think it’s a smart move and good information to add in at the end of the book, if a person is going to take that leap to having their own tank.

The author seems genuine and like he really just wants people who suffer to find a way through the muck - and maybe floating will be one important component of doing just that.

Great Intent and Some Good Content

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.
