The Ragged Edge of Silence; John Francis

The Ragged Edge of Silence: Finding Peace in a Noisy WorldThe Ragged Edge of Silence: Finding Peace in a Noisy World by John Francis Ph.D.
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

As a Quaker I was really interested in reading this exploration of silence, but the author's tone was, well, smug - something I would not have expected from a book of this nature. The author was more interested in telling us about his silence and his refusal to ride in cars than he was in really exploring silence as a means of communication for both him and others and how to find silence (or peace) in daily life.

The "exercises" weren't always connected to the content of each chapter, which would have seemed appropriate; sometimes they appeared to be haphazardly added because the chapter needed an exercise.
