Silence in the Age of Noise by Erling Kagge, £9.99

NORWEGIAN explorer Erling Kagge was the first person in history to reach the 'three poles' - North, South and the summit of Everest. During these expeditions he experienced extreme periods of utter silence, the longest being fifty days with a broken radio whilst walking solo across Antarctica.

In this delightful and simple little book he takes us on a journey towards unlocking the power of silence, to close out the noise of everyday life and find a space within in which we can hear ourselves think. We can find our own silence wherever we are and through that, learn to listen to ourselves.

This is a very special, beautifully bound book and is well worth a read.
