Summary
Author Christine Jackman knew her life looked successful -- an executive position in Sydney, a house in a harbourside suburb, meetings with CEOs and phone calls with government ministers -- but it didn't feel that way. Inside, she felt constantly off balance, her thoughts and internal compass -- as well as her ability to care for the people she loved most -- drowned out by the noise in her life. So Jackman embarked on a quest for a better way of being. Follow her journey as she explores what is happening to our brains, our lives and our communities as we navigate a never-ending assault on our senses and attention, whether from actual noise, exposure to media or the pings and alerts on our phones. More importantly, she reveals how we can reverse the damage through simple daily acts designed to strip out the stimuli and reclaim the silence. Seeking ways to channel and capture the clarity and peace of mind so often lacking in our lives, Jackman writes with a lightness of touch, sharing her own experiences and digging into her subject with the zeal of an investigative journalist and an enquiring mind
