Golden

The Power of Silence in a World of Noise



Golden: The Power of Silence in a World of Noise offers a new way of understanding the unprecedented mass proliferation of sensory input we live with, how it impacts us, and strategies and practices we as individuals, groups, organizations, and society at-large can use to turn down the noise.

Silence isn't simply an absence of noise.

At a time when everyday life demands our attention at every waking moment, Justin Zorn shares what scientists, philosophers, spiritual practitioners, creatives, and businesspeople have discovered about the nature of silence.
In this timely and enlightening book, they examine how we can be quiet together-suggesting how we create group norms among colleagues, in families, and between partners. With the explosion of open workspaces, the issue of working quiet is an urgent one; Justin offer innovative often counterintuitive strategies to create productive environments.

Thought-provoking and practical, Justin Zorn asks why we are letting silence slip away and what we can do to stop it?
