Publisher's Summary

The artificial noise in our lives is a debris field of arbitrary and often harmful signals. Our lives are riddled with sound: heavy-footed neighbours, an ambulance screeching nearby, white noise from the television. Unsurprisingly, the noisy environment in which we live has an immense impact on our concentration, alertness and feelings of anxiety.

To help us manage the rubble that hinders our mind and wellbeing, Bernie Krause whisks us through the practical steps that each one of us can take to reduce the unhealthy noise in your life and realize the healing powers of certain acoustic encounters. Along the way, we explore the difference between harmful noise and the signals that make us feel good, between noise as a stressor and soundscapes that serve to boost our emotional and physiological health and stimulate our productivity.

By following his suggestions, you'll discover what a wide variety of sound signatures represent; which ones you like, which ones you don't, and why. Thoroughly researched and accessibly crafted, The Power of Tranquility in A Very Noisy World will show you how to gain control over your sonic experiences and live a more tranquil and enduring life.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
