Breathing is vital to our health, yet humans have forgotten how to do it correctly, leading to serious consequences. Journalist James Nestor explores this issue, finding answers not in labs but in ancient burial sites, secret Soviet facilities, choir schools, and polluted cities. He investigates ancient practices like Pranayama, Sudarshan Kriya, and Tummo, and works with experts to test these methods.

Drawing on ancient texts and recent studies, Breath challenges what we know about this essential function, promising to change how you breathe forever.
