Adam Ford's quietly resonant book examines the different facets of silence and champions its place in our busy, distraction-filled lives. Part memoir, part spiritual guidance, he draws on a lifetime of experiences, both dark and light, to paint a thoughtfully subtle portrait. Ford's prose is elegant and straightforward, his touch both light and exceedingly profound. His view of nature as an aide to spiritual development echoes the thoughts of, among others, Goethe, Ruskin and Thoreau. A beautiful and peaceful book that feels like a drink of cool, reviving water in clamorous times.

When I read this book what struck a chord was how true it was. We live in this hustle-bustle of city life and we never take time to appreciate our surroundings and how they can become an escape and are not just the problem. It's all about taking time to consider how we can make peace out of noise and solitude out of multitude. So simple yet so true and Adam Ford writes wisely and humbly. Couldn't ask for more - captivating read...

to follow another's journey is no bad thing, this is a short light reading pathway and lack of too great a challenge is also sometimes no bad thing
