Title Details
Silence by Kagge, Erling
Silence: In the Age of Noise
by Kagge, Erling
 
A transformative account of an experience that is essential for our sanity and our happiness.

There is a solution to the noise, distraction, ceaseless pings and alerts that undermine our patience and disturb our daily equilibrium: silence. What is silence? Where is it? How do we create it? These are the starting points for ErlingKagge's journey, an adventure that allows him to recount his own experiences (he once spent 50 days walking solo in Antarctica without radio contact) and to discuss the observations of other poets, artists, and explorers. 

In this compact and astonishing meditation, Kagge explores the silence around us, the silence within us, and the silence each of us must create. He shows us the unexpected places where it sits—on the dance floor, in the shower, in the pause between musical notes, on a mossy rock—and how silence opens doors to wonder and gratitude. His book pulls you into its mystery.

(With full-color photographs throughout.)
