The Chimp paradox has some very interesting ideas in it.
It will probably either be something you quite quickly take to or
decide that it is a load of rubbish.

I really recommend you give it a read – google books have a free preview online.

Motivational reminders are also very helpful, such as a poster on the wall or a written message to yourself.
This might stop the Chimp from hijacking you.

namely the Human, the Chimp and the Computer with its Goblins,
Gremlins, Autopilots and Stone of Life.

I am wary of the “emperor’s new clothes” syndrome – people liking something just
because other people do – but 291 reviews @ 4.5 stars average is pretty good –
even the the one star reviews are informative – make your own decision.

Just google the ISBN no. 009193558X

Just for clarification no links or affiliate links just my honest personal opinion.

  1. I have found listening to the audio @ x 1.25 or 1.5 is fine – someone commented he spoke slowly and was dull but I always like to hear the author.

    Some of it is more relevant to different people than others – to me the key is if the outcomes you current have are fine who cares how you got there – BUT if there are things that are NOT how you want them there is a model to address things – it might not be easy but it is simple.

    Also remains me of a proverb about insanity being expecting a different outcome being when a person continues with the same actions but desires a different outcome!

    Also when he talks about emotional thinking I think he is meaning illogical and biased thinking rather than a “nice” type of emotion as opposed to “cold and heartless” decision making.

    However he is a bloke and a psychiatrist which requires first being a doctor – the level of academic aptitude required to get into medical school sometimes makes the resulting doctor#s terrible teachers.
