The Chimp Paradox

Steve Peters

Overview

Have you ever felt like you at times acted in ways that you didn't know were bad for you? It's a frustrating and confusing experience, but the good news is that you're not alone. Each of us has an inner chimp that, if we're not able to manage well, can take control of our decision-making.

Professor Steve Peters is a clinical psychiatrist and mindset coach to elite athletes. In The Chimp Paradox, Peters explains how to manage your inner chimp effectively, and how to use the Chimp Management model to become more successful in your relationships, health, and goal-setting.

"The Chimp does not necessarily work with facts ... It is quick to form an impression on little, if any, evidence and usually won't give way."
