Publisher's Summary

Your inner Chimp can be your best friend or your worst enemy... this is the Chimp Paradox. Do you sabotage your own happiness and success? Are you struggling to make sense of yourself? Do your emotions sometimes dictate your life? Dr. Steve Peters explains that we all have a being within our minds that can wreak havoc on every aspect of our lives - be it business or personal. He calls this being "the chimp," and it can work either for you or against you. The challenge comes when we try to tame the chimp, and persuade it to do our bidding.
The Chimp Paradox contains an incredibly powerful mind management model that can help you be happier and healthier, increase your confidence, and become a more successful person. This audiobook will help you to recognize how your mind is working, understand and manage your emotions and thoughts, and become the person you would like to be. Dr. Peters explains the struggle that takes place within your mind and then shows you how to apply this understanding. Once you're armed with this new knowledge, you will be able to utilize your chimp for good, rather than letting your chimp run rampant with its own agenda.

The best way to describe this book is it's an Owners Manual for People.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I have recommended it already to so many people. In our complex world it is unusual to meet anyone who has a perfectly balanced mind, and this book has s many techniques and lessons in it, that it has something in it for everyone.

What did you like best about this story?

It has most of the information I needed to sort out my life. I couldn't get this in 20 visits to a therapist or psychologist.

What does Tim Andres Pabon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Great voice to listen to. You won't get bored.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not possible. It is a long complex book and I had to listen to it three times for it to fully sink in.

Any additional comments?

Every human should get a copy along with their passport, driving license and library card. It's really an owner's manual for humans.

Metaphorically speaking

While I did get some good information regarding keeping my chimp under control, I found the over use of metaphorical analogies to be distracting and maybe a bit too dumbed down to be truly practical for me.
