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, Chade-Meng Tan 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 fifteen 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, the bestselling author and Google's "Jolly Good Fellow" 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.

"Narrator Telly Leung makes this conversational guide to inner joy as fun to hear as it is absorbing. His reading embodies believable flair, astute and nuanced phrasing, and a seamless connection with the author's humanitarian intentions and impish personality. He could not sound more appealing. Google trainer and TED star Chade-Meng Tan writes that joy is always available for summoning, regardless of how unhappy or angry we might be. It's a matter of developing the habit, one breath at a time, of clearing our minds and learning how to use the emotional and mental tricks that can uncover the joy that is always within us. Along with Leung's sterling performance, the audiobook's kindly approach to adopting a meditation practice makes this a must-listen for those wanting to step back from their crazy-making lives and find true happiness--whenever they want it.
