Stillhet i støyens tid. Gleden ved å stenge verden ute Reviews
Erling Kagge may be the ultimate challenge-seeker. According to the book’s jacket, Kagge is the first man to have completed the Three Poles Challenge on foot—the North Pole, the South Pole, and the summit of Mount Everest. Wow! I would submit that his greatest challenge however, was the decision to write a book about silence.
He obviously experienced a lot of silence when he trekked across Antarctica alone for 50 days. But this isn’t a book about the exploration of remote places. This is a book a ...more
This was an interesting read; I decided to read this book because it focuses on mindfulness and meditation. I’m currently really interested in learning about these two topics and this was a good book to get a feel of how one person interprets being mindful and inner peace...

Have you ever read a book that resonated with you more so than usual because you read it at the right time in your life? For me, this was that book. At the time of reading it, I've been laid up for 6 weeks after ankle surgery which has given me more than enough time to think about what sort of direction I want for 2018. As someone that's always enjoyed time alone but makes a living from the internet, finding silence within noise is something that's important to me...and I've never read a better ...more
I enjoyed this super quick read. I picked it up after reading about it in the newspaper one weekend - I found his reflections interesting and thought-provoking.
There are many who will not agree with my five star rating, but this book was exactly what I needed to begin my new year and I will be sharing it widely. There is no way for me to share all of the quotes that I loved from Kagge's offering but I will share two that will give you a taste, one from Kagge himself, "Shutting out the world is not about turning your back on your surroundings, but rather the opposite: it is seeing the world a bit more clearly, staying a course and trying to love your li ...more
Meditative, beautiful. The pictures are a gorgeous accompaniment. I started reading this when I woke up one night at 4 am and couldn't fall back to sleep. This was the perfect time to read a book on silence. I am someone who values silence. I almost never listen to the radio in the car, music and TVs are almost never on as background noise, I love to walk and listen to near silence in the woods. I really enjoyed Kagge's ruminations on this topic.
Some lines I liked:

Aus diesem Buch habe ich mehr rausholen können für mich, als aus jedem anderen Buch, was sich um geistige Gesundung des eigenen Körpers befasst. Und hier geht es "einfach nur" um Stille. Großartig.
กอนอาน Silence : In the Age of Noise ผมคิดวาหนังสือจะพูดถึง ‘เสียง’ ตามความหมายในพจนานุกรม (สิงทีไดยินดวยหูและวัดออกมาเปนเดซิเบลได) เทานัน เพราะเมือพิจารณาชือรอง “In the Age of Noise” เขากับบริบทสังคมของประเทศเรา มันกชวนใหรูสึกไปในทางนันจริงๆ (เผือใครไมทราบ ประเทศเราคือประเทศทีไมวาคุณจะเดินไปไหนหรือทำอะไรอยู เสียงทีไมวาคุณจะชอบหรือไมชอบ ตองการหรือไมตองการ กพรอมจะเขามาชอนไชหูของคุณอยูเสมอ)
เมือขึนรถไฟฟาคุณจะเจอโฆษณา “ดิสกวาทีคีย” หรือ ตอใหคุณเจียมตัวและนอนเฉยๆ บนเตียงทีบาน เพือนบานของคุณกอาจจับไมค ...more
