Erling Kagge, the Norwegian adventurer and polymath, once spent 50 days walking solo in Antarctica with a broken radio. 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.

A short but charming antidote to busy modern life
The irony of beginning this winsome little audiobook on a smartphone, straining to hear the narrator on an oppressively noisy tube train isn’t lost on me…but fortunately I decided to postpone my listening for another, quieter, time. I’m glad I persevered, as Erling Kagge has produced a thoughtful meditation on the important – and often ignored – role of silence in our hectic, noisy modern lives. Since finishing this collection of charming anecdotes from the author’s life, I’ve worked to pay attention to the rare moments of quiet and embrace them. My phone has never spent less time by my side.

Listening to this felt like meditation...
It can seem like the ware of a credit on such a short audiobook but it is so worth it. The narration suited the topic and the few sound effects were apt. This is a book to be revisited many times.
