Product description

A follow up to Pico Iyer’s essay “The Joy of Quiet,” The Art of Stillness considers the unexpected adventure of staying put and reveals a counterintuitive truth: The more ways we have to connect, the more we seem desperate to unplug.

In The Art of Stillness—a TED Books release—Iyer investigate the lives of people who have made a life seeking stillness. Iyer also draws on his own experiences as a travel writer to explore why advances in technology are making us more likely to retreat.

The Art of Stillness paints a picture of why so many have found richness in stillness. Ultimately, Iyer shows that, in this age of constant movement and connectedness, perhaps staying in one place is a more exciting prospect, and a greater necessity than ever before.

In 2013, Pico Iyer gave a blockbuster TED Talk. This lyrical and inspiring book expands on a new idea, offering a way forward for all those feeling affected by the frenetic pace of our modern world.
