Product description


As an explorer Erling Kagge is world class; as a writer he is equally gifted. This breathtaking, inspiring little book teaches us how to find precious moments of silence - whether we are crossing the Antarctic, climbing Everest, or on the train at rush hour (Sir Ranulph Fiennes)

Silence braces a space within which we can hear ourselves think. Quietly, wisely, it makes a case for dumbing the din of modern life, and learning to listen again. Drawing on the experiences of Kagge's extraordinary life in wild places, this is a book of great concentration (Robert Macfarlane)

Erling Kagge is a philosophical adventurer - or perhaps an adventurous philosopher (New York Times)

A breathtakingly beautiful, quietly life-changing book by the Norwegian explorer Erling Kagge, that shows us how to find perfect silence in our daily lives - however busy we are (Publisher's description)

Book Description

From the Norwegian explorer, a stunning meditation on the power of silence and how to shut out the world.
