Born in 1970, Chade-Meng Tan is a talented engineer who worked at Google and held a mindfulness course called “Search Inside Yourself” for his colleagues. The course was so successful, that the personnel department called him to work for Human Resources. His course became very popular among Googlers, and became a book by the same title. Search Inside Yourself, the book, became an international bestseller, and Tan also wrote Joy on Demand, a book on the art of rediscovering the joy within us as the key to living a more peaceful life, in harmony with the world.
