Publisher's Summary

Early Google engineer and personal-growth pioneer Chade-Meng Tan first designed Search Inside Yourself as a popular course at Google, intended to transform the work and lives of the best and brightest behind one of the most innovative, successful, and profitable businesses in the world... and now it can do the same for you. Meng has distilled emotional intelligence into a set of practical and proven tools and skills that anyone can learn and develop.
Created in collaboration with a Zen master, a CEO, a Stanford University scientist, and Daniel Goleman (the guy who literally wrote the book on emotional intelligence), this program is grounded in science and expressed in a way that even a skeptical, compulsively pragmatic, engineering-oriented brain like Meng's can process. Whether your intention is to reduce stress and increase well-being, heighten focus and creativity, become more optimistic and resilient, build fulfilling relationships, or just be successful, the skills provided by Search Inside Yourself will prove invaluable for you. This is your guide to enhancing productivity and creativity, finding meaning and fulfillment in your work and life, and experiencing profound peace, compassion, and happiness while doing so.
Search Inside Yourself reveals how to calm your mind on demand and return it to a natural state of happiness; deepen self-awareness in a way that fosters self-confidence; harness empathy and compassion into outstanding leadership; and build highly productive collaborations based on trust and transparent communication.
In other words, Search Inside Yourself shows you how to grow inner joy while succeeding at your work. Meng writes: "Some people buy books that teach them to be liked; others buy books that teach them to be successful. This book teaches you both. You are so lucky."
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Hard to Listen To

I'm not sure I'll actually be able to listen to the whole thing - it almost sounds like a computer's doing the reading

If you only read one book on this topic....

Any additional comments?

This book is full of reasons why mindfulness and meditation are good for you. It also has many simple to follow exercises to get you on the path.

In many ways, this is the meditation book I wish I had many books ago. I especially appreciated the parts which set very easy steps with which to start your practice. It seems like, with many other writers, you are encouraged to think that unless you have done a 10 day meditation retreat, you are not really doing it….. This book was different. The minimum is very achievable.

There were also a few powerful moments in the book where I had to stop an reassess my outlook on life.

I recognise that the narrator seems to have grated some other readers but his voice did not bother me.

I highly recommend this book, even if you have read other books on this topic.
