When Conley, dynamic author of the best-selling Peak, suffered a series of tragedies, he began using what he came to call “Emotional Equations” (like Joy = Love – Fear) to help him focus on the variables in life that he could deal with, rather than ruminating on the unchangeable constants he couldn’t, like the bad economy, death, and taxes. Now this award-winning entrepreneur shares his amazing new self-help paradigm with the rest of us.
Emotional Equations offers an immediately understandable means of identifying the elements in our lives that we can change, those we can’t, and how they interact to create the emotions that define us and can help or hurt our progress through life. Equations like “Despair = Suffering – Meaning” and “Happiness = Wanting What You Have/Having What You Want” (which Chip presented at the prestigious TED conference) have been reviewed for mathematical and psychological accuracy by experts. Conley shows how to solve them through life examples and stories of inspiring people and role models who have worked them through in their own lives.
In these turbulent times, when so many are trying to become “superhuman” to deal with our own and the world’s problems, Emotional Equations arms listeners with effective formulas for becoming super human beings.

Combining math and the social sciences, this is such a unique way at looking at emotions. I really enjoyed the concept and tried to make my own Emotional Equations. I keep a cheet-sheet of equations in my pocket that I refer to. Very fun read.

Major game changer.
It is great ot have him narrating his own work, as he knows exactly where he wants to put emphasis and this gives the text and information some personality. Makes it easier to listen to. The only reason the sory category has a four star is because theres some repetition which I realize was the result of Chips decision to make the book practical even if read or used in a non linear fashion. So on my first listen through there were times I tuned out a bit because it was text I had heard before.
There is a LOT of information in Chips ground breaking book. This is not a once through and done work, so it is great to be able to go through different chapters to listen and take notes. Chip does a very good job of breaking own complex ideas into approachable concepts with clear explanations and applicable examples.
I expect this will be a book I refer to many times to reinforce the life changing principles.
Highly recommend for anyone interested in personal growth or who works with emotional healing such as school counselors, therapists.
