By Erling Kagge

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.

'A bestseller on why finding inner silence is the key to happiness . . . bound to hit our sweet spot for wanting to unplug and disconnect from the world' Evening Standard

'Fascinating' The Times

'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

'An author for our noisy times, full of a rare and deeply redemptive languor and perspective' Alain de Botton
