    I usually have a book of short stories or essays that I read at bedtime. These are the only books I read in bed. The title was perfect, called to me, as I too value my silent time, not only value it but need it to keep my mental equilibrium steady. I don't even own a cell phone. I foun...

    I found this book deeply unsatisfying. Whatever it's about, it's not really about silence. Erling Kagge is a well known explorer and traveller. My expectations, based on the book's summary, was that he would be writing about his experiences of silence journeying to the North or South P...

    This isn't a very long book and is more of a series of vignettes by the author on silence. There are 33 sections, with each like a separate essay. If you are someone who already values the essentials of silence, this will probably not add anything that you don't already know. However, ...

    Have you ever read a book that resonated with you more so than usual because you read it at the right time in your life? For me, this was that book. At the time of reading it, I've been laid up for 6 weeks after ankle surgery which has given me more than enough time to think about what...

    This is a very silly book. Kagge is an explorer and entrepreneur whose worldview is close to 180 degrees away from my own. He seems earnest, but entirely humorless and enraptured by rich people problems. He also, in my mind, has never met an anecdote from which he can't draw the wro...

    Erling Kagge is quite an impressive man. He was the first person in the world to walk alone to the South Pole. He was also the first to surmount the "three poles" ? North, South and the summit of Mount Everest. He?s the founder of a publishing house and a well-respected author. I w...

    '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 explo...

    Der norwegische Bergsteiger und Extremwanderer Erling Kagge musste weit gehen, um sie zu erleben, die Stille. Auf seinen Expeditionen zu den beiden Polen und zum Mount Everest ist er fndig geworden. Doch auch in groen Stdten wie New York und Oslo kann man sie finden, sagt er. Kag...

    I usually have a book of short stories or essays that I read at bedtime. These are the only books I read in bed. The title was perfect, called to me, as I too value my silent time, not only value it but need it to keep my mental equilibrium steady. I don't even own a cell phone. I foun...

    I found this book deeply unsatisfying. Whatever it's about, it's not really about silence. Erling Kagge is a well known explorer and traveller. My expectations, based on the book's summary, was that he would be writing about his experiences of silence journeying to the North or South P...

    This isn't a very long book and is more of a series of vignettes by the author on silence. There are 33 sections, with each like a separate essay. If you are someone who already values the essentials of silence, this will probably not add anything that you don't already know. However, ...

    Have you ever read a book that resonated with you more so than usual because you read it at the right time in your life? For me, this was that book. At the time of reading it, I've been laid up for 6 weeks after ankle surgery which has given me more than enough time to think about what...

    This is a very silly book. Kagge is an explorer and entrepreneur whose worldview is close to 180 degrees away from my own. He seems earnest, but entirely humorless and enraptured by rich people problems. He also, in my mind, has never met an anecdote from which he can't draw the wro...

    3.6 stars. A lush meadow of insight lined with the occasional landmine of false profundity. Overall a worthwhile read on an underappreciated subject. ...

    Erling Kagge is quite an impressive man. He was the first person in the world to walk alone to the South Pole. He was also the first to surmount the "three poles" ? North, South and the summit of Mount Everest. He?s the founder of a publishing house and a well-respected author. I w...

    I usually have a book of short stories or essays that I read at bedtime. These are the only books I read in bed. The title was perfect, called to me, as I too value my silent time, not only value it but need it to keep my mental equilibrium steady. I don't even own a cell phone. I foun...

    I found this book deeply unsatisfying. Whatever it's about, it's not really about silence. Erling Kagge is a well known explorer and traveller. My expectations, based on the book's summary, was that he would be writing about his experiences of silence journeying to the North or South P...

    This isn't a very long book and is more of a series of vignettes by the author on silence. There are 33 sections, with each like a separate essay. If you are someone who already values the essentials of silence, this will probably not add anything that you don't already know. However, ...

    Have you ever read a book that resonated with you more so than usual because you read it at the right time in your life? For me, this was that book. At the time of reading it, I've been laid up for 6 weeks after ankle surgery which has given me more than enough time to think about what...

    This is a very silly book. Kagge is an explorer and entrepreneur whose worldview is close to 180 degrees away from my own. He seems earnest, but entirely humorless and enraptured by rich people problems. He also, in my mind, has never met an anecdote from which he can't draw the wro...

    3.6 stars. A lush meadow of insight lined with the occasional landmine of false profundity. Overall a worthwhile read on an underappreciated subject. ...

    Erling Kagge is quite an impressive man. He was the first person in the world to walk alone to the South Pole. He was also the first to surmount the "three poles" ? North, South and the summit of Mount Everest. He?s the founder of a publishing house and a well-respected author. I w...

    I couldn't help staring at the cover, taking a copy from the display and rearranging it so nobody would know I took a copy, and then replacing it. I couldn't decide whether or not this book was one to own, to hold at my bedside or one I could check out from the nearest library. I re...

    There are many who will not agree with my five star rating, but this book was exactly what I needed to begin my new year and I will be sharing it widely. There is no way for me to share all of the quotes that I loved from Kagge's offering but I will share two that will give you a taste...

    I usually have a book of short stories or essays that I read at bedtime. These are the only books I read in bed. The title was perfect, called to me, as I too value my silent time, not only value it but need it to keep my mental equilibrium steady. I don't even own a cell phone. I foun...

    I found this book deeply unsatisfying. Whatever it's about, it's not really about silence. Erling Kagge is a well known explorer and traveller. My expectations, based on the book's summary, was that he would be writing about his experiences of silence journeying to the North or South P...

    This isn't a very long book and is more of a series of vignettes by the author on silence. There are 33 sections, with each like a separate essay. If you are someone who already values the essentials of silence, this will probably not add anything that you don't already know. However, ...
