Editorial Reviews

Review

“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 Zappos.com, 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

“Full of humor and humility, wisdom and mindfulness, Meng’s book is a compelling read, but more importantly, a valuable manual for living a good life. Rarely have I read a book full of so much intelligence and emotion. I want to be Meng when I grow up!” — Chip Conley, founder of Joie de Vivre Hotels and author of Emotional Equations

“Meng is like a wise and humorous monk who will continue to inspire you for years after you close the pages of his book. With the needs of today’s world in mind, he offers practical and proven tools wrapped in the gift of timeless wisdom.” — John Mackey, co-chief executive officer and co-founder of Whole Foods Market

“This work underscores the need for compassion, awareness and empathy in our society. It is no surprise that the best venture capitalists and entrepreneurs I know possess these attributes. This is one of the best works ever in personal development. Read this book, it will change your life.” — Tan Yinglan, author of The Way Of The VC and Chinnovation

“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.” — ContemplativeComputing.com

Chade-Meng Tan (Meng) is Google's Jolly Good Fellow (which nobody can deny). Meng was one of Google's earliest engineers. Among many other things, he helped build Google's first mobile search service, and headed the team that kept a vigilant eye on Google's search quality. His current job description is, "Enlighten minds, open hearts, create world peace".

Outside of Google, Meng is the Founder and (Jolly Good) President of the Tan Teo Charitable Foundation, a small foundation dedicated to promoting Peace, Liberty and Enlightenment in the world. He is a Founding Patron of Stanford University's Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE). He is also a Founding Patron of the World Peace Festival, and adviser to a number of technology start-ups.

Meng earned his MS in Computer Science from the University of California at Santa Barbara. He went to Santa Barbara mainly for the beach, but didn't mind the graduate degree either. He considers himself a Buddhist "on most weekdays, especially Mondays". He is an avid meditator, because meditation facilitates in him inner peace and happiness "without doing real work". Meng occasionally finds himself featured on newspapers. He was featured on the front page of the New York Times and delivered a TED talk at the United Nations. He has met three United States Presidents, Obama, Clinton and Carter. The Dalai Lama gave him a hug for his 40th birthday. His personal motto is, "Life is too important to be taken seriously".

Meng hopes to see every workplace in the world become a drinking fountain for happiness and enlightenment. When Meng grows up, he wants to save the world, and have lots of fun and laughter doing it. He feels if something is no laughing matter, it is probably not worth doing.
