Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“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)

“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)

“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)

“Combining timeless wisdom with modern science, Chade-Meng Tan has created an entertaining and practical guide to success and happiness.” (Deepak Chopra)

Search Inside Yourself is a practical guide to the fundamentals of emotional intelligence. This book has the potential to change lives and deliver happiness.” (Tony Hsieh, New York Times bestselling author of Delivering Happiness and CEO of, Inc.)

“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)

“There is more to be discovered inside of ourselves than we will ever find by searching anywhere else, and the challenge is in learning how to look. In a simple and plain spoken way, Meng has crafted an elegant invitation we can all use to take that journey.” (Scott Kriens, Chairman, Juniper Networks director, 1440 Foundation)

“This is a guidebook to help you Search Inside Yourself, as Meng’s training program at Google was called, to find inside yourself the knowledge, skills, and motivation to apply to your own life as you search for meaning, peace, and love.” (Larry Brilliant, President of the Skoll Global Threats Fund)

“Our friend has made an awakening contribution to this Over-Information Age. I recommend it to those aspiring self-mastery, attention training, spiritual wisdom, and the path of the wakeful life through enlightened living. Seek, and ye shall find. This is one of the best places to start.” (Lama Surya Das)

“When I visited Qom a couple of years ago, a Grand Ayatollah gave as his parting words to me: May you find what you seek. I have long thought about what the Grand Ayatollah said. Chade Meng’s book has pointed me in the right direction.” (Brigadier-General George Yeo, former Minister for Foreign Affairs, Singapore)

“This book reveals a key part of the success of Google. Whether we are trying to create positive change in the corporate realm or our personal relationships, Meng teaches us external change can only happen if we individually spend time cultivating a better understanding our own inner world.” (Tim Ryan, United States Congressman and author of A Mindful Nation)

“Old wisdom is presented here with a provocative and startling freshness. The way to enlightenment begins with waking up. Meng is doing this with passion, humor and generosity of mind. This is a book to read, share, laugh with and celebrate.” (Father Laurence Freeman, OSB, director of the World Community for Christian Meditation)

“Think of S.I.Y. as the Zen of Google.” (

Présentation de l'éditeur

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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Recommended! 30 juin 2013
Par Magda - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I loved this book - a no-nonsense, easy-to-read, down-to-earth guide to knowing oneself at an increasingly deeper level and becoming a better human being. I read it very quickly as it is very easy to read and goes straight to the point. The only thing I didn't like was the Google propaganda (and the book cover is pretty unappealing, too)...but never mind, I enjoyed all the rest. I consider it a perfect introduction to mindfulness and introspection for the average Western man and have recommended it to lots of male friends.

Meditation, emotional intelligence, zen buddhism and Google. And it is not a puzzle to chose wrong word in a list. These are elements of one picture.

Someone understood that human society is driven not only by intellect and IQ. Emotions play cricial role in understanding and acting in this world.

Another one wanted to make earth a place full of peace and harmony. And he created this book after trying his ideas in Google Univercity. Amazing.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 and funny too! I've read it through once 26 juillet 2014

Completely outstanding. Takes the age old principles of meditation from Buddhism, and uses modern science to make it acceptable and relevant to most people. It's a very insightful, thought provoking book, and funny too ! I've read it through once, and I think I need to read it again. I've begun my mindfulness journey, and in less than two months, I can see major changes. The question now is when will you begin ?

1.0 étoiles sur 5 and the author does a good job of explaining them 16 janvier 2015
Par bookivore - Publié sur
I use a lot of techniques in this book, and the author does a good job of explaining them. However, his self-awareness is critically lacking, which is especially aggravating when he's holding himself up as an example of how aware a person can be. Specifically, he has a section called The SCARF Model for the Social Brain, where he describes five "domains of social experience ... that are so important to you that your brain treats them in the same way it treats survival issues": Status, Certainty, Autonomy, Relatedness, and Fairness. As far as I can see, nowhere does he acknowledge the fact that millions of people are trapped in situations where their status is low, their certainty is nil, they certainly have no autonomy, their relatedness is damaged because their status is low, and fairness is nonexistent. And they are trapped in living lives of constant survival-mode by our economic system.

In other words, it is extremely easy for this author, swaddled in the luxurious folds of Google, to teach the virtues of self-awareness, self-confidence, etc. Nowhere does he acknowledge that to a great extent, his SCARF issues were already taken care of so, sure, he had plenty of brainspace left to advance himself. He speaks briefly at the end of the book about how much easier it is to run charities when you're happy, but this way of life he's selling in this book is not available to *so* many people *because* of the system that he is profiting from. Is Google working to decrease the wealth gap, or is it making it worse?

This is a critical issue for this author and this book because until financial SCARF-based fairness exists in society, no one is spiritually mature. Some people are very, very happy, using these techniques, but they are not mature because others are suffering. There's a movie called The Examined Life with interviews of philosophers, and the first philosopher points out that it is unethical to be totally happy in this day and age. If your ethics are healthy, you *should* feel anxiety to a certain extent -- because this world has serious problems. The author gives lip service to awareness that these problems exist, but not to the fact that he represents part of the reason why those problems exist.

And this lack of self-awareness, by the way, leads to such travesties as his cartoon on page 15 -- two soldiers with machine guns about to enter a room full of smoke and hellfire, each motioning to the other saying, No, after you! The caption is: Nice Guys in the Military. This cartoon is NOT funny. It is tragic that the author thinks it is.

So there is some useful advice in this book, but be wary of who's delivering it and the limits of his agenda.
