Search Inside Yourself: The Unexpected Path to Achieving Success, Happiness (And World Peace)
Written by Chade-Meng Tan, (c) 2012, New York: HarperCollins.
As the author, a computer engineer at Google explains, he and some colleagues at work started out with the question of how to make contemplative practices accessible to others so that they could help others be successful in life and in work. From there, they developed a mindfulness-based emotional intelligence course, “Search Inside Yourself,” many ideas and content of which is shared in the book.
I enjoy this book. A strength of it is the candid way Chade is able to “translate teachings from the language of contemplative traditions into language that compulsively pragmatic people like [himself] can process” (p. 4).
