Product Description
 
For millennia exploration has been central to man's quest for meaning and knowledge. For when we set our sights on the horizons, we bring everything us around into focus.

Erling Kagge was the first man in history to reach all of the Earth's poles by foot - the North, the South and the summit of Everest. In Philosophy for Polar Explorers, he sets out all that he has learned from his many expeditions in sixteen concise meditations on life above and below the tree line. Part philosophy, part explorer's handbook, this an expert guide on how we can all go further, achieve more, and discover a more meaningful existence.For millennia exploration has been central to man's quest for meaning and knowledge.

Erling Kagge is an explorer who was the first in history to reach the 'three poles' - North, South and the summit of Everest. During these expeditions, he experienced extreme periods of silence - the longest being 50 days. He has since returned to Norway and searches for moments of silence amongst noisy family life and work as a writer and publisher. Silence is published in 33 languages.
