    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"
    "Enjoyable & Insightful"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Search Inside Yourself to be better than the print version?

    Not necessarily. I have not read the print version, but I intend to purchase it too. I'd like to review the exercises more carefully.


    What other book might you compare Search Inside Yourself to and why?

    I suppose one could compare it to "Wherever You Go, There You Are" by Jon Kabat-Zinn, because they are both basic guides to mindfulness mediation. They have very different perspectives and the writing is quite different.


    What three words best describe Nick Sullivan’s voice?

    enthusiastic, clear, happy


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    NA


    Any additional comments?

    The title didn't grab my attention, so I was a little hesitant to purchase it with my precious credits. I worried it would be a superficial treatment of mindfulness meditation, but I am happy to say my first impressions were wrong. At first I was skeptical about how much insight a Google engineer could convey in a book about mediation. As it turns out, the engineer had many insights and a great sense of humor. I am preparing to teach a basic mindfulness class in the fall, and I found this book very useful in terms of it examples, clarity and suggested exercises. I especially liked the how the author compared mindfulness, emotional intelligence and self-awareness. These comparisons make the topic of meditation more mainstream and accessible.
