The Chimp Paradox

Book Review Written By Roseanna Croft

What a life changing book…

A Mind Management Programme to Help You Achieve Success, Confidence and Happiness by Prof Steve Peters

I was recommended this book by about 5 different people before I read it and I’m not joking when I say it honestly changed how I think and approach life!

81yeeIXikrLI began by listening to the audio book while training for the London Marathon earlier in the Year. Professor Peters narrates it himself and I kind of fell in love with his voice and northern accent! I actually cried when the book finished because I was so inspired. (I was also half way through a 20 mile run…)

I then went on to physically ready the book to process his mind management theory even deeper. Reading this book could not have come at a more perfect time for me because I was really struggling with certain aspects of life and how my emotions can get in the way! Turns out, it was only my Chimp – Betty!

I would highly recommend this book to anyone in business (or not!) as a way of understanding how your mind works and how you can stop sabotaging your own happiness!

I have also had the pleasure of seeing Prof Peters talk earlier this year. He is doing another at the Buxton Opera House on 8th September and we would like to invite you all (including plus ones) to join Robyn and I in attending. We are not affiliated with this event and it is not a TDI event – we just really admire this man and think it would be a brilliant Friday night! You can purchase tickets here, please let us know if you plan to attend!

The Chimp Paradox Event!


The Mind Simplified! 

This book was attractive to me as i am always interested in how my mind works and how I experience things. It is such a powerful message and learning curve that i must admit i have listened to the audio book about 7 times so far, and i learn something new each time.

This book has taught me how to be successful, but not necessarily successful by normal standards, But by my own standards instead. this mentality is amazing and something i take not onlyThe-Psychological-mind-with-graphics-and-words-1024x763.png into my own life but into my business.

It has also allowed me to understand and overcome my feelings of anxiety towards some situations and how i can deal with these to promote a positive outcome.

Totally worth a read!
