In this meditative, charming and surprisingly powerful book, he explores the power of silence and the importance of shutting out the world.Whether you're in deep wilderness, taking a shower or on the dance floor, you can experience perfect stillness if you know where to look. And from it grows self-knowledge, gratitude, wonder and much more.Take a deep breath, and prepare to submerge yourself in Silence. Your own South Pole is out there somewhere....

Stillhet i støyens tid. Gleden ved å stenge verden ute Reviews
2,5. This book was like a small collection of interesting quotes about silence and inspiration. I appreciate who the author is and what he did but I find this book pointless. 😓🙁
I was going to rate this 3 stars, but then I got to the part where he speaks worshipfully of Elon Musk and thanks him in the credits as a friend, so 2 stars it is.
Muito interessante e que nos faz reflectir acerca do silêncio nas nossas vidas.
That's my favourite book I read this year!!! <3
“O silêncio, em si, é rico. É algo de exclusivo e luxuoso. Uma chave para abrir novas maneiras de pensar”.
Sendo eu alguém que aprecia e usufrui de imensos períodos de silêncio semanais, este livro não me poderia passar indiferente.
Numa sociedade que cada vez mais sabe menos o valor que tem o silêncio, esta é uma obra curta e interessante, de um ponto de vista muito pessoal mas muito rico.
Vale a pena sermos lembrados que o silêncio é muito importante.
A lovely reflective book with which to finish the year. It sits somewhere in the ti-border area between popular philosophy, self help and extreme travelogue, all of which are genres I would ordinarily avoid like the plague. However, the writing is unpretentious and the insights profound in a quiet, understated way. I’m also a sucker for heavily bearded Scandinavians in distressed knitwear banging on about solitude and the ultimate pointlessness of human existence, so this was bang up my alley.
I tried a deep dive into silence while reading this book today and fell asleep in my reading chair. I may need to work on this.
PS The book was lovely and meditative.
'Silence' by Erling Kagge, translated by Betty L. Crook
3 stars/ 6 out of 10
The whole subject of solitude and silence is of great interest to me, and I have already read several books on this topic. I was interested in reading this new book by Erling Kagge, the Norwegian explorer and adventurer.
The main body of this book consists of thirty-three sections, which look at various aspects of the 3 questions that Kagge raises: 'What is silence? Where is it? Why is it more important now than ever?'
