Reviews

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 * 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 Erling Kagge is a philosophical adventurer - or perhaps an adventurous philosopher * New York Times * 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 Silence braces a space within which we can hear ourselves think.

Author description

Erling Kagge is an explorer who was the first in history to reach the 'three poles' - North, South and the summit of Everest. During these expeditions, he experienced extreme periods of silence - the longest being fifty days. He has since returned to Norway and searches for moments of silence amongst noisy family life and work as a writer and publisher. Silence will be published in 33 languages and is already a bestseller in Norway and Italy.
