The Way of Silence draws heavily on Buddhist teachings to cultivate the practice of "deep" listening: turning away from noise and distraction, paying attention, and embracing quiet. The Way of Silence embraces paradox: absence versus presence in silence. Dynamic tranquility. The all-oneness of aloneness.
Humbly, trusting in God, you'll practice emptying your mind in order to receive wisdom, insight, and understanding. You'll learn to listen deeply, with a trusting heart - and you'll joyously discover a new, interior freedom that will make you feel more vibrant, and more fully alive.

Based on this, no. There was no central thesis whatsoever, it was largely from-the-hip, politically correct babbling that referenced multiple religions, and did not at all teach one how to engage the sacred in daily life until, perhaps, the last chapter.
It has no thesis, and no linear layout.
Not really, the speaking is monotone.
