Google’s “Jolly Good Fellow” Hopes New Book Will “Change the World”

HarperOne has announced that it will publish “Search Inside Yourself,” a book by Google’s Chade-Meng Tan (Meng), famously known as the company’s “Jolly Good Fellow.” The book is based on the personal growth course of the same name that he pioneered for employees at Google.

Meng is a strong proponent of mindfulness and is quoted as saying that it could “change the world.” To get a full understanding of what he means by that, read’s article on “Meng’s Peace Plan” in which Meng expounds his “three easy steps to world peace” (spoiler alert: meditation is a key component).

The book is slated for a May 2012 publication date. In the meantime, you can also read’s feature, “Google Searches,” which introduces the story behind Meng’s course.
