9780007467167: Search Inside Yourself: The Secret to Unbreakable Concentration, Complete Relaxation and Effortless Self-Control

Can you imagine what it's like to be able to completely clear your mind and experience a deep sense of calm whenever you want?

What about the power to switch into a state of intense concentration, but at the same time be completely relaxed?

Or even to feel the beginnings of an unwanted emotion, like anger, but be able to choose whether to let it take hold of you, or simply make it dissolve and disappear?

One Google engineer managed to do just that. Chade-Meng Tan discovered a way of explaining these secrets in a way that busy, stressed-out people could instantly understand. So many fellow Google employees told him that it had changed their life that he stopped engineering to share it with the world.

The course that he still runs at Google is in this book, and it's designed in a practical way that anyone can apply to any area of their work or family life. Meng won't ask you to hug a tree or 'find your centre'. He'll use brain scans, modern science and plenty of humour to show you how a miraculous technique called mindfulness can, in just 100 minutes, begin to change your life.

Search Inside Yourself

Review:

‘This book and the course it’s based on represent one of the greatest aspects of Google’s culture—that one individual with a great idea can really change the world.’ (Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Google)

‘Combining timeless wisdom with modern science, Chade-Meng Tan has created an entertaining and practical guide to success and happiness.” (Deepak Chopra)‘This is a book offering much good advice. I most appreciate Meng’s insight that expressing compassion for others brings happiness to oneself as well.’ (Jimmy Carter, Former President of the United States)

‘Google engineer, Chade-Meng Tan’s book shows that to avoid certain kinds of results, you need to change the conditions that give rise to them. If you change the habitual patterns of your mind, you can change their resulting attitudes and emotions and find peace and inner happiness.’ (His Holiness the Dalai Lama)

‘I applaud Chade-Meng for daring to undertake the writing of a book on “Emotional Intelligence,” within which lies the essence of knowing oneself. The practices he offers will help improve our lives and in the process lead to a world where greater peace and happiness is possible.’ (S.R. Nathan, Former President of Singapore)
