Search Inside Yourself by Chade-Meng Tan
This book looked enticing. I am interested in meditation and concentration techniques and this promised to be an enthusiastic exploration by a keen intellect. How could one resist a book claiming to be “The Secret Path to Unbreakable Concentration, Complete Relaxation and Total Self-Control?
However I had to abandon it largely because of the style and unconsious elitism of the author, a man who wears his corporate credentials on his sleeve.

When a trusted friend suggested I read this popular book, I was interested but leery of reading – yet another – “step-by-step” plan for meditation. Typically, books on deepening one’s awareness or spirituality or devotional life are old plans retreated to appear as “new information” with the requisite (and obvious) reminder that daily adherence to the plan is required. This book’s power lies in it stating the truth that living and life are to be found the moments of “mindfulness.” Search Inside...more

Couldn’t hang with this book after somewhere around the third chapter. Just too painful. I don’t know what I was thinking getting this book.
Well, actually I do. I figured maybe it would be a nice change to give mindfulness a try instead of my usual state of slowly being consumed in a fire of all-consuming rage. Further I figured that since I worked at Google for six-ish years maybe a class designed at Google for Google employees would be well-suited for me.
I was vaguely aware of this class when

Read this in two sittings, one during dinner and one after dinner-induced food coma.
I picked up this book because I was curious what would one of the most famous Singaporeans (at least in tech) write on the intangible subject of Happiness.
I was not disappointed and actually the book turned out to be way beyond my expectations.
He advocates using mindfulness meditation as a tool to increase happiness and creativity, gives plenty of scientific evidence and statistics to prove that meditation is

I read this book after reading a review in the NYT. The review was actually more of a feature on the author than a review, but the topic seemed interesting and he has definitely done good work.
In the end, I didn't love it. I think that the whole 'look at us we work at Google that is so hard' thing didn't work for me. Because I know people who work at Google and trust me, there are much harder jobs. I do agree that people in the workplace are too stressed these days and we need to deal with it, I

Meditation has turned into somewhat of a sexy practice these days, especially among techie types. Case in point: this book about meditation, written by the person in charge of meditation at Google. However, this is not some business book about increased productivity. Indeed, Chade-Meng Tan’s goal in life is to change the world through increased personal contentment and compassion.
I started practicing meditation before I actually knew what meditation was, although I certainly wouldn’t consider my

To people who meditate regularly, the beginning of this book will be things you already know (well, I assume so - I meditate regularly, and fee that the start of the book was a refresher course). But the science behind the examples was interesting and reinforced my commitment to meditate regularly.
And then it changed. This book took the practice of meditation and explained how it helped you at work. Like. For reals. No, really for reals.

The writing style is a bit too dumbed-down and seems to have some forced humor. I enjoyed the practical snippets that recommend actionable steps you can take toward meditation and leading a life with more inner peace and happiness.
If this were my first self-help/psychology book, I would probably have loved it. But the author makes so many references to books I've already read (Mindset, 7 Habits, Difficult Conversations, The Artists Way, even basic yoga principles), that there was very little new information. So while the information is useful, I have to give it a two-star 'okay' for the lack of news, and his corny jokes.

My hopes for the book were that it would be the one book about mindfulness I could recommend to all friends, because it was coming from an engineering mind. It almost lived up to my expectations, but not quite. While the bullshit levels were super low, the depth was sometimes lacking and substituted with name-dropping.
Still, it was a great overview of mindfulness – some theory, a ton of practices, which I think will be useful to everybody in the “creative workforce”.
Give it a try.

I liked this better than other mindfulness books I've read, like 10% Happier. Meng spearheaded the creation of a course for Google employees on mindfulness meditation (couched in the framework of building emotional intelligence, which is more 'business-like') and then adapted the curriculum into this book. What I liked was that Meng sets a very low bar for entry into the practice of mindfulness meditation: he suggests practicing meditation the 'easy way' — noticing your breath for 2 minutes — or...more
The author has developed a course at Google designed for its engineers, during which he leads employees through an extremely accessible adaptation and explanation of meditation practices, emotional intelligence, and mindfulness. As a result, principles which are often cloaked in much depth or complexity are now laid bare with simple break-out exercises, illustrations and storytelling, designed for cynical, linear-minded readers.
The first read was great, and will help me know which pages to flip

Star performers in the tech sector differ from average performers in six ways: a strong achievement drive, ability to influence others, conceptual thinking, analytical thinking, initiative in taking on challenges, and self-confidence (Goleman, 1998). If you're looking at this list and thinking success here goes well beyond technical skills, you're right. Can these skills be built? Chade-Meng Tan's argues that they can be; Search Inside Yourself outlines Meng's professional development program at...more
I believe mindfulness works. I believe these techniques work in a supportive corporate environment. I wish more corporate environments were open to encouraging the overall health of employees, but I don't know if they will be unless they see a bottom-line need for it. Since this comes from Google, it carries more authority than it would from a start-up that can get by with a 'hippy-dippy' approach to work. But he doesn't justify the money reason enough, I think, to convince companies that have a...more
A visitor brought this along, so I borrowed it for a few days. I am an ardent Googler, so I figured I owed it to Google to read a book by one of their engineers on how he proposes to save the world.
Pleasant read, excellent suggestions and like a lot of things in life, easier said than done. Relax and pay attention and relax and help people and relax. Oh, and help them be at ease in life, too. Something like that. I'm poking fun, but with affection. I liked it.

I write about and teach meditation. As a result, many people ask me for a good, easy-to-read guides for beginners. Search Inside Yourself delivers. The author adapts several standard Buddhist meditations for the work setting, and he blends Dharma teachings (never really calling them Dharma, though) with the fields of psychology and specifically emotional intelligence. The book is easy read and left me with several take-aways, even though I've been meditating for years. For instance, I particular...more

Jon Kabat-Zinn for the work environment. So he offers 'short cuts' to meditation as well as more formal instructions. I found the parts about managing emotional triggers in meetings useful. He also has some good reminders about how important it is to have a positive outlook about a person you meet even though you might have heard some unflattering things about them; some good practical empathy tips; and 'mindful' ways of handling difficult people and situations.
After reading a decent number of books on mindfulness from the 'babas' and 'gurus' of the world I picked this book to hear about mindfulness and its application from an engineer.. and not any engineer but employee no 107 from THE Google.. Oh boy was i disappointed !
Mengs work seemed extremely derivative and to me its is a collection of notes from books by the Dalai Lama, Steven Covey, Daniel Goleman and Jon Kabat Zinn..If you have read their books and given meditation a level 1 try then this bo

I've been reading a little of this book everyday as I try to incorporate good practices this year. Meditation is something I've done on and off without much success at establishing and maintaining a practice.
Tan's book offers practical lessons in breathing, meditation and how to use them to become calmer, more focused and more creative at home and at work.
It's written simply with many practical suggestions for establishing these habits. Recommended for anyone who wishes more clarity and calm in

I really enjoyed this book on mindfulness meditation and its real world benefits, along with a whole load of different meditations to try out on a daily basis.
I read a library copy of it, but I suspect that to get the most benefit from it, I probably need to buy my own copy and refer back to it over time as I progress through the various meditations.

In short, how mindfulness will make everything better in your life and the world. Sounds overly ambitious but he pulls it off. Even if I'm just able to apply 10% of this book, I will be ahead.

(4.5) May change your life if you really adopt the lessons here. Might've been 5.0 if the tone were a little less boasty, false self-deprecating.
After reading a few books on meditation and happiness, I expected this to be just another one like the others. But I was pleasantly inspired by all the practical instructions and the humour throughout the book. Highly recommend this book and its message to spread peace to the world starting with me.

I love this guy's approach to mindfulness. I was delightfully surprised to find a healthy dose of 'leadership' related practices.
I read Stephen Hawking's book 'A Short History of Time' many years ago. Despite being very brief, 'A Short History of Time' had developed a fearsome reputation as one of the great unread best-sellers. Somewhere around page 20 I realized why. Hawking went to considerable pains to avoid using equations, and he claims that the concepts can be understood without any math. Hogwash.

I've been drawn to mindfulness for some time, but there are few resources for those who are interested in the pragmatic and scientifically proven benefits of mindfulness without integrating some form of dogma and mysticism.
Leave it to Google to tackle this problem.

“The key is to let go of two things: grasping and aversion. Grasping is when the mind desperately holds on to something and refuses to let it go. Aversion is when the mind desperately keeps something away and refuses to let it come. These two qualities are flip sides of each other. Grasping and aversion together account for a huge percentage of the suffering we experience, perhaps 90 percent, maybe even 100 percent.” — 5 likes
