Read Joy on Demand: The Art of Discovering the Happiness Within Online Free - A long-awaited follow-up to the New York Times bestselling Search Inside Yourself shows us how to cultivate joy within the context of our fast-paced lives and explains why it is critical to creativity, innovation, confidence, and ultimately success in every arena.
In Joy on Demand, Meng shows that you don’t need to meditate for hours, days, months or years to achieve lasting joy—you can actually get consistent access to it in as little as 15 seconds. Explaining joy and meditation as complementary things that naturally reinforce each other, Meng explains how these two skills form a virtuous cycle, and once put into motion, become a solid practice that can be sustained in daily life.
For many years, meditation has been taught and practiced in cultures where almost all meditators practice full-time for years, resulting in training programs optimized for practitioners with lots of free time and not much else to do but develop profound mastery over the mind. Seeing a disconnect between the traditional practice and the modern world, bestselling author and Google’s “Jolly Good Fellow” Chade-Meng Tan has developed a program, through “wise laziness,” to help readers meditate more efficiently and effectively. Meng shares the three pillars of joy (inner peace, insight, and happiness), why joy is the secret is to success, and demonstrates the practical tools anyone can use to cultivate it on demand.

Books like this are really hard for me to read. If I would've been reading the physical copy, I can all but guarantee I wouldn't have finished it. I think I get into this 'betterment of Allie' attitude, buy/download a book, and then after a few chapters I start talking myself out of it. Fortunate...

I enjoyed Tan's earlier book, Search Inside Yourself, and so was excited to hear that he had released a new book. To me, Joy on Demand is even better. Maybe it's because as a novice at mediation, Joy on Demand is a wonderful guide on how to access joy from within by training to ease (claiming the...

A how to book on how to access joy from within by training the mind.
There are three steps to achieve this: 1. Ease into joy [you must learn to rest the mind. Being joyful at rest; innerjoy]. 2. Inclining the mind toward joy [notice joy in everyday life. The mind will get to know joy]. 3. Uplifti...

To truly be finished with the book, I would have had to integrate his learning into my life and I have failed at that so far. However, this is a great introduction into meditation- very encouraging, interesting, personal and fun.

I don't know if I had a bit of a virus or if this book was just full of highly successful relaxing visualizations and meditations because I fell asleep several times over the course of reading this book. That said, I got a lot out of it and I totally understood the Dalai Lama's last tweet on Twit...

I appreciated the humour and concrete mindfulness techniques. I would recommend this to people who are interested in mindfulness and cultivating more joy in both their lives and the world.

I stumbled on this book through the Shelf Awareness newsletter, and from the write up it looked like something that would interest me and I was not disappointed. This is a great book, part guide, part memoir of Meng's journey and part high-level review of both the origins and the scientific evide...

2rd book by Meng, one of my fav author about meditation. Meng is one of those early Google engineers and NYT bestselling author. He has an interesting way of putting an abstract subject like mediation, mindfulness, emotional intelligence and compassion, and turn them into a practical and measura...
