    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.

    Michael Davis says: "The narration is intolerable"
    "Good information marred by banal reading."

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This is a professional reader with a beautiful sounding voice but utterly out of sync with the material he's presenting, making the content of the book sound banal and trivial. He would sound more at home on an ad selling washing powder or pharmaceuticals. A good reader must inhabit the content as though they were the author themselves otherwise, like in this audiobook, the content comes off as sounding non-believable, which is a shame because this is indeed worthy content. This is a book touching topics of a spiritual and emotional nature, deeply personal subjects but sadly none of this comes forth in the presentation.A appropriate reader must fit the tone of the book they're presenting. This book may have some depth, but who would know? It's not given a chance to shine. I suggest buying a copy of the paperback.
