Noise is epidemic in contemporary life, but people have long complained about the amount of noise and the unavailability of quiet. This book attempts to look at this impulse of humans to fill the ambient space with noise and to find solutions and alternatives that provide the silence for contemplation. Well-researched and full of good information, I felt l like it tried to do a bit too much, but definitely a worthwhile read.

I‘m the most outgoing of the mbti introvert types so sometimes we are mistaken for extroverts, but no. #introvertorextrovert #infj

#TBR is tentative AF because I am prone to overestimate myself. 😆
I am trying to chill out on my library holds though so I can make some headway on my #readyourowndamnbooks goals 👌
A lot of these are books I have started or rereads of other editions. #sizzlinsummerbooks

sprainedbrain Jane Eyre and Catcher. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ 5y
Crinoline_Laphroaig #readyourowndamnbooks 😂 I so need to do this! 5y
MatchlessMarie @missnavigation I'm so bad! I think out of the 12 or so books I own that I have read this year 10 of them are children's book rereads 😆 5y
