Ssssh!

A brilliant, far-reaching exploration of the frontiers of noise and silence, and the growing war between them.

Between



iPods, music-blasting restaurants, earsplitting sports stadiums, and



endless air and road traffic, the place for quiet in our lives grows



smaller by the day. In Pursuit of Silence gives context to our



increasingly desperate sense that noise pollution is, in a very real



way, an environmental catastrophe. Traveling across the country and



meeting and listening to a host of incredible characters, including



doctors, neuroscientists, acoustical engineers, monks, activists,



educators, marketers, and aggrieved citizens, George Prochnik examines



why we began to be so loud as a society, and what it is that gets lost



when we can no longer find quiet.
