Description de l'ouvrage

30 mai 2013
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 book will help you to:

—Recognize how your mind is working
—Understand and manage your emotions and thoughts
—Manage yourself 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.

Quatrième de couverture

Do you sabotage your own happiness and success? Are you struggling to make sense of yourself? Do your emotions sometimes dictate your life?

The Chimp Paradox is an incredibly powerful mind management model that can help you become a happy, confident, healthier and more successful person. Dr Steve Peters explains the struggle that takes place within your mind and then shows how to apply this understanding to every area of your life so you can:

- Recognise how your mind is working

- Understand and manage your emotions and thoughts

- Manage yourself and become the person you would like to be

The Chimp Mind Management Model is based on scientific facts and principles, which have been simplified into a workable model for easy use. It will help you to develop yourself and give you the skills, for example, to remove anxiety, have confidence and choose your emotions. The book will do this by giving you an understanding of the way in which your mind works and how you can manage it. It will also help you to identify what is holding you back or preventing you from having a happier and more successful life.

Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Highly recommended. This is not a scientific or academic book so criticisms from professionals in the field may well be a bit misplaced. But to call it just a self-help book with a solid scientific basis would perhaps be to undervalue it. Most importantly, like other readers, I have found that it has changed the way I look at my interactions with other people as well as my own actions and reactions to others. I'd like to think that I'm getting to be a more tolerant and therefore happier person for reading it and understanding that other people sometimes say and do things that they don't really mean. Of course I "knew" this before but now it's at the forefront of my mind. And more, the author gives the reader strategies to deal with those moments when the inner beast (he calls "your chimp") wants to lash out at another and regrets it later, rather than take a more constructive approach. Maybe there are moments when the reader might think that the author is going over ground he'd covered before but these can be overlooked when you consider that overall the book is very readable and engaging.

A really interesting approach to dealing with emotion and motivation. At first I thought this was just another popular psychology self help book but it is actually way more. I started to find useful stuff really early on - a difficult client who regularly presses allthe buttons was seen in a newlight and I found new ways to interract that helped me stay calm. Other instances also helped illustrate the usefulness of this book and the method.

I would highly recommend this to anyone who finds difficulty in emotionally charged situations or in dealing with people who act out. It certainly gave me insights into my own behavious and that of others which will really help in my work and in acheiving my personal goals.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wow, this is amazing. You must read this book! 30 janvier 2012

I bought the book because of Dr Peters' reputation, especially from his work within the world of sports psychology.

I read the book in two days and have since bought 4 further copies for my immediate family.

Incredible to say, but this paperback can really change your life. It is written in layman's terms and explains how you can change the way you live your life for the better by understanding what makes you unhappy, angry or frustrated and helping you to be happy and contented instead. This may sound unlikely but Dr Peters manages to describe the problems we all face every day and how to deal with them using simple, practical examples and exercises. I now realise that I can choose to be happy, content and fulfilled and I am working towards that on a daily basis.

I can honestly say this book is changing my life and I would recommend it to anyone!

You must read this book!

As a recreational cyclist of 50 years or so and an amateur racer for the past 30 years and a follower of pro cycling, I had read frequent references to chimps in relation to the elite athletes of British Cycling. I had also read of Dr Steve Peters who works with British Cycling and the Sky Procycling Team. I also knew that his work with the athletes had been extremely successful in helping them win a string of Olympic Gold Medals in Beijing 2008.

I was therefore curious as to what the fuss was about. This book neatly and clearly sums up the concepts applied by the author in his work. His thesis is that we all have 3 parts to our brain, a Chimp who works on emotion and sees things in black and white and a Human who is calm, sensible and logical. Both struggle for control and often the Chimp wins and make us do things in sport and everyday life that we might regret. The Chimp and the Human program the third part of our brain which is the Computer. In other words the part that allows us (amongst other things) to ride a bike, drive a car, and behave in a reasonable manner towards our fellow humans.

Using the concepts and ideas in the book, one can learn how to manage the Chimp to get the best out of sport, work and life. It also teaches us how to recognize and work around other people's Chimps.

I found this book gave me a great insight into the way I used to react to sporting, work and general life situations. It alerted me to the existence of my Chimp and gave me some tools to manage it.

The book is an excellent tool for planning sporting objectives.

Don't expect this book to give you the answers to life's problems but it will certainly give you the tools to help you deal with them.

Highly recommended

1.0 étoiles sur 5 cotton candy for the mind 31 mars 2012
Par Lara Boyde - Publié sur
I ended up scanning through this right after a luxuriating in a proper read of Kahneman's masterful "Thinking, Fast and Slow": what a contrast between the substance of Kahneman's book and the flimsiness here. I wondered if I'd been catapulted back to a self-help book from the 1980s - mostly built around an incorrect or incomplete theory - mainly hot air.

Peters introduces 3 parts of our brain: the emotional Chimp, the sensible and mature Human, and the Computer. The Chimp and Human often oppose each other and the Chimp can be dangerous and embarrassing. The book purports to provide tools to manage the Chimp - basically distractions or rewards. The author is a Dean at a provincial medical school in England. As he is also resident psychiatrist with professional cycling teams, presumably he has been experimenting on their cyclists with this theory. I note reviews here from cyclists who claim success, which I simply cannot believe, based on my extensive reading on emotions, motivation, success and happiness.

Some of the reviews claim this book can change your life. I disagree, based on hundreds of self-help books I have read over three decades and more; most bad, a few good (only those solidly based on research, like Kahneman's books). I cannot see how it would be possible for any advice in this book to work in the long term. There's no mention whatsoever of the reptilian part of our brain which hijacks most fight/flight/freeze situations whereas this book claims the Chimp brain is responsible. There's hardly any credit given to the vital contributions of the limbic ("Chimp") brain which is actually the seat of desire (aka motivation) and decision-making, neither of which is even hinted at in this book.

There's very short shrift given to the proven most helpful processes, which include changing how you think about the kinds of situations that repeatedly upset the Chimp and allowing your emotions to move freely (in private, of course) so that they can give you important information and achieve a resolution. Suppression and denial of thoughts and beliefs have been proven not to work - not only that, but things get worse when you try. According to (for example) "White Bears and Other Unwanted Thoughts: Suppression, Obsession, and the Psychology of Mental Control" by Daniel M. Wegner which is based on research, unlike the dangerous pop psychology in this Chimp book, deliberately trying to suppress unwanted thoughts will just ensure those thoughts will systematically persist.

Far better is "Bounce" by Matthew Syed, an English table tennis champion. Whilst Syed provides no new information, he has drawn together many relevant research threads on the psychology of success in an interesting and easy read. I also suggest McGonigal's "Maximum Willpower" (or "the Willpower Instinct" as it appears to have originally been called). The most effective process for clearing upsets permanently, by the way, is explained in "The Healing Code" by Loyd.

The Chimp Paradox is a good basic intro to the way the brain works. At times the analogies have been simplified to such a degree that it makes one cringe. But the message is strong and it raises the awareness of the inner brain and how to manage it - which is the book's aim.

I really liked this book. I would challenge anybody to read it and not get some useful stuff out of it. Easy to understand both linguistically and concepts-wise. I have read it once and have recommended it to friends. I will also read it again and do some of the exercises in it. I found it helpful as a tool to manage the mind and get a handle on where one might be sabotaging oneself without even realising it.
