THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER

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.


'Quietly, wisely, Silence makes a case for dumbing the din of modern life, and learning to listen again' Robert Macfarlane


What is silence?


Where can it be found?


Why is it more important than ever?


Norwegian explorer Erling Kagge once spent fifty days walking solo across Antarctica, his radio broken.


In this charming, quietly life-changing book - now an international publishing phenomenon - he takes us on a journey to unlock the power of silence. And he shows us how to find perfect silence in our daily lives, however busy we are.
