Prof Steve Peters
Consultant Psychiatrist Professor Steve Peters swapped a background in mathematics for medicine, gradually evolving the practise of behavioural improvement that would become the best-selling “mind manual”, The Chimp Paradox. Peters rose to particular prominence working with sporting elite across a number of fields, but it was his work with the British Cycling team (notably Chris Hoy and Victoria Pendleton) that properly sealed his reputation. The Chimp Paradox – effectively a method to help control the unwanted and self-destructive behaviours – was later joined by The Silent Guides and a version of The Chimp Paradox for children, My Hidden Chimp.
So many people are blighted by a certain self-destruction and struggle to make sense of themselves and their sometimes wayward emotions. The Chimp Paradox is Professor Steve Peters’ mind management model which seeks to explain why our minds work as they do, helping readers to manage their thoughts and emotions. The book includes practical exercises that promise immediate improvement, over time allowing people to live the life they are looking for.
