"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.

I found this interesting and was going to give it 4 stars, but then I realized I actually felt happier despite only doing a few of the exercises, so I upped it to a 5! ( )

Meditation for the modern, hyper-connected person, explained with humor and practicality. ( )

This book was not giving me much joy. I tried the ebook and the audiobook but neither version was really doing it for me... too much detail, not a great choice of narrator, it felt like the whole thing was at least 40% filler which could have been and should have been edited out. Good suggestions for meditation, but geez were they buried deep in the clutter. ( )
