Sixteen pragmatic reflections on how we can go further, achieve more, and live better, from one of the world's greatest explorers.

About the Author

Erling Kagge is an explorer who was the first in history to reach the 'three poles' - North, South and the summit of Everest. During these expeditions, he experienced extreme periods of silence - the longest being 50 days. He has since returned to Norway and searches for moments of silence amongst noisy family life and work as a writer and publisher. Silence is published in 33 languages.

Reviews

As an explorer Erling Kagge is world class; as a writer he is equally gifted -- Sir Ranulph Fiennes
Drawing on the experiences of Kagge's extraordinary life in wild places, this is a book of great concentration -- Robert Macfarlane
A delightful book that explores the strange land between getting out of bed in the morning and reaching for the moon * Tristan Gooley *
A wonderfully deft Swiss army knife of a book. One really feels the hard won wisdom at the book's heart, the graft and nouse of life lived in arctic extremis. Kagge's preternatural energy, warmth and sagacity shine - a cool-headed polar philosopher to treasure! * Dan Richards *
A marvellous human being * Chris Evans *
