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."

I enjoy audio books and blogging.
Yes. This book teaches you how to become a better thinker.
The best part of this book was the directive to separate responses from thoughts.
The narration was good and it did match the pace of the story. Oddly, I kind of liked that it sounded like a monorail announcement.
I think it took too long to get started. I felt that the first six chapters were merely an advertisement for the benefits of meditation.
Yes, I will listen to it again sometime in the future, while commuting. I have the paper version as well to get the detailed instructions for the practices.
Roughly to other meditation and self-improvement books, but this one is a good compilation of what's out there, in a good mix and match way.
This is my first time and I found it very good.
It got me laughing in the streets, which was good to cause others to smile as well.
Chade-Meng Tan writes from the heart, uses different research resources and puts this two components to practical day to day reality.
For me the Narrator's style does not match the Author's style, which makes the listening kind of odd, but nothing unbearable.
I was really looking forward to this book after seeing the rave reviews on Amazon for the book. The biggest issue is that the book is narrated by someone that is so mechanical and droll that listening is unbearable. The guy literally sounds 'robotic' at times.When listening to a subject matter such as this, the tonality of voice is really important, the listener needs to feel comfortable with the narrater. I've only managed to get about half hour into this listen, I just can't stand it any more. I'm focussing far more on the narrators weird voice that I'm not hearing the content. Very disappointed.
