Though some of the metaphors used in the book are sometimes hard to swallow, the model is very powerful.
It will make you think differently. Situations, reactions, perceptions will become clearer.
Definitely recommended.

Read this in Mexico on holiday. It really does make you see the connection between how we behave and how we can control our emotions and make us feel better about ourselves.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wow, this is amazing. You must read this book! 30. Januar 2012
Von nanab - Veröffentlicht auf
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!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Simple Mind Map 27. Januar 2012
Von Rototuna Rocket - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
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 von 5 Sternen cotton candy for the mind 31. März 2012
Von Lara Boyde - Veröffentlicht auf
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.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good basic intro 12. November 2012
Von Tigerdeano - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen My chimp hated it! 31. Oktober 2013
Von txvangogh - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I loved it! The little monkey knows I'm on to him now. You may not be able to teach an old dog new tricks but you can learn new tricks to fool an old chimp. It explains in a easy to grasp analogy why you find yourself scratching your head after you've done or not done something that baffles your intellect.
