Review:

A brilliant and inspiring book that clearly illustrates how silence has shaped history and culture as much as the spoken word has. --Gillian Wearing, artist, and winner of the Turner Prize for 'Sixty-Minute Silence'

Kenny's book will be invaluable for anyone who wants to explore the richness and complexity of silence in a wide range of social domains and activities. Silence emerges as a multifaceted resource with which we create meaning and a powerful metaphor through which we can gain understanding of the surrounding world. 'The Power of Silence' will engage readers and enrich their experience of this most ineffable of all the communicative forms. --Prof. Adam Jaworski, Centre for Language and Communication Research, Cardiff University

Kenny moves the reader to fully appreciate the beauty in silences of peaceful interconnection, those that make music ebb and flow, and the therapeutic silences of self-knowledge. He shows the multifaceted nature of silence and the profound importance of context in understanding its meaning. --Dr Heidi M. Levitt, Department of Psychology, University of Massachusetts
