Overview

Meditation has become a very popular way of getting to know yourself on a deeper level. Search Inside Yourself explains how practicing mindfulness can have a positive influence on your work performance and job satisfaction.

The 'search' in the title and its font are meant to recall the imagery of Google's search page. As a matter of fact, Chade-Meng Tan, the author, used to be one of the earliest Google engineers. As he explored the topic of personal growth, he ended up teaching the company's employees how to apply mindfulness to increase their well-being in the office and beyond.

Today, Search Inside Yourself is also the name of an independent leadership institute that organizes mindfulness-based training all around the world. Tan decided to lay out all the basics of it in his book. Endorsed by Jon Kabat-Zinn and Daniel Goleman, who both wrote forewords to Search Inside Yourself, it stands as a credible guide on how to find success by learning to look within.
