5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book!!!!! 24. April 2012
Von Robert Piper - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This guy is absolutely hilarious! According to the forward in the book by one of the leading pioneers of mindfulness named Jon Kabat-Zinn, Meng carry's around a business card that says "The jolly good fellow of Google (which nobody can deny)."

Meng designed a meditation system at Google; to make the practice more accessible to people, he calls it, "Search Inside Yourself" its designed to work on three things.

1. Attention training

2. Self-knowledge and self-mastery

3. Creating useful mental habits.

This books is full of ways to incorporate mindfulness into your life, he explains in-depth how to manage harmful emotions with mindfulness. It also contains a great deal of science backing up all of his claims, not to mention the book contains personal testimonials from other Google employees, about how a mindfulness practice has influence their life.

As he says in the book about creating useful mental habits, " Imagine whenever you meet anybody, your habitual, instinctive first thought is, I wish for this person to be happy. Having such habits changes everything at work, because this sincere goodwill is picked up unconsciously by others." This is one hundred percent possible by incorporating a consistent mediate practice into your life similar to the one laid out in this book.

America is ranked very low in the level of happiness on several recent polls and studies. This is something that bothers me, and I would generally like to see more people partaking in any type of available meditation practice or a practice that is similar to Search Inside Yourself even if they only incorporate five to ten minutes a day. I've been mediating for close to a decade, and I spend four hours a day doing it, because I think it's the most incredible tool for consistent states of happiness.

Meng also explains how emotional intelligence is one of the best predictors of success and fulfillment in life. He outlines several mindfulness strategies in the book to work on your emotional intelligence.

This book is a wonderful introduction to mindfulness, as well as a great book for advanced practitioners.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Happiness starts inside your head 28. April 2012
Von Joanna Daneman - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is an interesting book and has valuable information for those who wonder why nothing seems to satisfy or fulfill themselves. While I don't think this is a complete guide to how to live a fulfilled life, I'm going to review what IS in this book and not what IS NOT here.

The author, who has had a successful career as one of Google's early pioneering engineers, covers meditation and mindfulness as well as emotional intelligence. The combination of familiar information we all hear touted daily about meditation and philosophical attitudes that derive from Buddhism, with psychological techniques and knowledge of emotional intelligence is powerful stuff. The question is, will every reader be able to implement these concepts? Possibly not--but if you find there are areas of, say, emotional intelligence that you cannot grasp or you cannot seem to master, it's a signpost for you. Perhaps someone, a professional counselor, pastor, teacher or other guide can give you tools to move you past the roadblock.

The text is easy to read and well-illustrated with amusing cartoons and drawings. The book is engaging. Yes, there are many many of these "new-age" how to be happy books, but this one is so clearly written and so concise, I think it has a place on your bookshelf.

The emotional intelligence section, in particular, is laid out as clearly as a roadmap. Self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy and social skills are the five pillars. In additional to getting you to a happier state, emotional intelligence can boost your work performance, and improve your relationships. The author chooses a most delightful example of someone who learns emotional intelligence: Ebenezer Scrooge! My fave, A Christmas Carol. Who doesn't love the story of the reformed curmudgeon, who goes from an insensitive, mean, unhappy man who begrudges even a handful of warming coals to his hapless clerk, to the joyfully generous uncle who dispenses his bounty only to find the more he gives, the happier he himself becomes. Great example, and the five steps of emotional intelligence are all there in Scrooge as he transforms himself in the Christmas miracle.

If you are unfamiliar with the concepts of emotional intelligence and of mindfulness and being in the moment, this is an easy-to-read book that can entice you to delve deeper into the subject. And it may be a bit of an "aha!" moment...if I feel unhappy, I can change that inside my head. And if I spread meanness and bad thoughts and actions, happiness is going to elude me forever. Great book. Recommended!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Funny, insightful and rational. A great way in to meditation. 27. April 2012
Von Trevor C. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I found Search Inside Yourself to be a terrific guide to the world of mindfulness meditation. I'd meditated before, but this book got me reengaged with mindfulness and back into a daily practice. Now I find myself using the techniques from the book on the daily basis.

As an engineer from google, the author takes an evidence-based analytical approach to meditation, which really resonated with me. The exercises and techniques were clear and I didn't feel silly/crazy doing them, like I do with some meditation stuff. Also, the whole book is full of jokes and is just a joy to read.

If you're someone who's looking to learn about meditation, then I highly recommend this book. It's made me a better boss, a better friend and overall a happier person!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great book from a passionate author 2. Mai 2012
Von AnneB - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I was really looking forward to reading this book since it was written by a Google engineer and is a course taken by Google employees. I was not disappointed, it is a great book with some easy to do exercises anyone can do to improve their life. Chade-Meng Tan uses humor throughout the book to make the concepts taught fun to learn about. He also does a great job of stressing how easy it is to learn emotional intelligence and do meditation and it really made me want to try it out.
Most of the book discusses meditation, both how to do it and the benefits from it. Along with meditation there are chapters about self-confidence, not letting your emotions control you, and the importance of empathy. Chade-Meng Tan states from the beginning that his goal in life is to help bring about world peace and this book is his way of bringing peace to the world one person at a time. HIs passion for the topics discussed shines throughout the book and he really gives you the motivation to give his ideas a try.
I have read a few self-help and meditation books before and I would have to say that this is the best one that I have read. After finishing the book I felt like the author was a friend motivating me to improve my life with some easy to do exercises. I am looking forward using the things I learned in this book and am sure that they will help me to be a happier person.

3.0 von 5 Sternen An act of repetition and re-branding 23. März 2014
Von CWS - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I read an article in the NYTimes about this book and bought it. I started off really liking this book, but found it way too long and repetitive.

First, it repeats and repeats itself often. I found myself constantly wondering when the book would be finished by the time I was a little over halfway through it. I also think the book lacks a female perspective or voice. After a while, the jokes about being a better husband and being a man in the workplace get old. Give us more gender balance!

Second, this book does not provide anything new. For anyone who has dabbled in meditation or reading other spiritually minded books, these methods and techniques will seem like recycled material. Everything in the book is taken from somewhere else, and if you have read the "source" text then you will quickly be frustrated by the rote and surface level approach taken in this book.

I really wanted to like it more, but couldn't.
