Editorial Reviews

Review

“When a book offers practical, scientific insights on success and happiness, I’m intrigued. When that book also has cartoons, I’m in. Meng’s book is a joyful look about where we can find more joy in our lives.” (Adam Grant, Wharton professor and New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take and Originals)

“With Joy on Demand, Meng continues to further his goal of promoting a better life grounded in happiness for his fellow human beings. I commend his efforts to build a better world with humor, persistence, and meditation.” (Jimmy Carter, Former President of the United States)

“Meng presents mind-training tools that are free of traditional religious trappings and made accessible for everyone. His contagious humor and his gentle guidance have the potential to deeply impact today’s society.” (His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje)

“In this book, Meng helped me to see that joy isn’t just an emotion, but it’s also an action. By tapping into the joy that is deep inside all of us, we gain access to the foundational building blocks of creating a happy life.” (Chip Conley, bestselling author of Emotional Equations and Hospitality entrepreneur)

“With this book, Meng reminds us that this human joy is the most reliable, lasting, and truly joyful kind, and shows us how to use nothing more (or less) than our own human minds to get it.” (Ray Kurzweil, Inventor, Author and Futurist)

“A formidable articulation of what it means to cultivate mindfulness in all its dimensionalities, and why it is worth persevering with both effort and effortlessly. Meng’s logic and clarity are inspiring, infectious, and transformative.” (Jon Kabat-Zinn, Founder of MBSR, Author of Full Catastrophe Living and Coming to Our Senses)

“With Meng’s new book, joy is about to go viral. These simple, delightful instructions make it as easy to experience--and share--as it could possibly be.” (Steve Chen, Co-Founder of YouTube)

“This book DEMANDs your EnJOYment!” (Tony Hsieh, New York Times Bestselling author of Delivering Happiness and CEO of Zappos.com, Inc.)

“Meng has captured the subject of our search for joy with his usual elegance and humility... All one must bring is the intention for a more joyful and resilient way to live, and these pages will do the rest!” (Scott Kriens, Director of 1440 Foundation)

Joy On Demand is a title that is half in humor, but only half. It is a serious introduction to meditation, the more profound for it being so simply explained. I am now on my next breath.” (George Yeo, Chancellor of Nalanda University) --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

From the Inside Flap

Joy is the root of happiness.

Joy is a sustainable state that fuels our creativity and inspiration for innovation. It strengthens our ability to attract friends and to get along with others. Learning to cultivate joy is the fundamental secret to success. In this long-awaited follow-up to the New York Times bestselling Search Inside Yourself, Chade-Meng Tan shows us how anyone, no matter where they are, can access this source of happiness.

Meng writes, "If you have been unhappy, or you are happy and aspire to be even happier, know that your happiness set point can be upgraded. I know because I did it, I have seen many others do it, and scientific studies have measured it. Of course, Buddhist monks and other contemplative people have been doing it for thousands of years, but it's not something in the water in the Himalayas, it's something you can do too, wherever you are. I think the main problem is most people aren't aware that it is even possible. Or, if we've heard of it, many of us think it is unattainable so we don't even try. We don't know it's something that every single one of us can learn."

The path to joy on demand is through mindfulness, but it doesn't have to be a lot of work, take a lot of time, or require you to abandon all your possessions and live in a hut on a remote island. In Joy on Demand, Chade-Meng Tan reveals the innate contentment that we all possess and how to tap into this natural, infinite capacity for joy. The best part is that the benefits extend to every aspect of life--our brains work better, our bodies function better, we achieve greater success at work, and we find ourselves highly attractive to the people around us.

The more we exercise this skill, the more familiar we become with joy, the more we effortlessly gravitate toward it, and in so doing create a sustainable sense of wonder and contentment that can carry us throughout our entire life. (Holding for applause.)

--Shawn Achor, happiness researcher and bestselling author of The Happiness Advantage --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
