Reviews

"Elegant and eloquent."--New York Times "[A] genial and informative study of the noisiness of modern life."--The New Republic "An adventure of profound listening."--The New Yorker "Fascinating."--Salon "A global quest to find those who still value silence."--NPR "Sometimes alarming and often charming, it sings the praises of quiet and reports the uncertain progress in the war against noise."--The Dallas Morning News "Compelling."--Bookforum "Smart... Silence is good for falling asleep, but Prochnik's attentive take on noise keeps us wide awake."--Publishers Weekly "Elegant and understated, this thoughtful look at rarely considered aspects of everyday life reveals an often unrecognized cost of modern living.--Booklist "A lucid, balanced appreciation of silence's solemn tonic."--Kirkus
