Silence: In the Age of Noise
by Erling Kagge
- Personal Transformation
What is silence?
This breathtaking, inspiring tale teaches us how to find precious moments of silence--whether we are crossing the Antarctic, climbing Everest, or on the train at rush hour. In 1993, Norwegian explorer Erling Kagge spent fifty days walking solo across Antarctica, becoming the first person to reach the South Pole alone, accompanied only by a battery-less radio. In Silence, an astonishing and transformative meditation, Kagge explores the silence around us, the silence within us, and the silence we must create. By recounting his own experiences and discussing the observations of poets, artists, and explorers, Kagge shows us why silence is essential to sanity and happiness—and how it can open doors to wonder and gratitude.
