  • Appeal to readers who favour clear language and practical illustrations over scientific jargon

A Path Through THe Jungle

by Profession Steve Peters

Author of one of our favourite books, The Chimp Paradox, Prof Steve Peters, explains neuroscience in straightforward terms with his Chimp Management Mind Model. This latest publication from Prof Peters is a structured, practical self-development programme to help you attain psychological health and wellbeing.

He encourages us to develop “psychological mindedness”, as a tool to understand, not what happens, but how we respond, from the perspective of our own unique mind. Using the eight steps of the model, we learn how to programme our own minds to switch off from unhelpful thinking patterns and focus on what we need to do in the moment.



This book will:

  • Explain why and how to manage the struggle within the mind
  • Help to put you into a good place within yourself
  • Take you along a path leading to robustness and resilience
