        The Chimp Paradox Summary Aug March 1, Niklas Goeke Self Improvement 1-Sentence-Summary: The Chimp Paradox uses a simple analogy to help you take control of your emotions and act in your own, best interest, whether it’s in making decisions, communicating with others, or your health and happiness.   The Paradox Of Choice Review. This summary is great. There’s a common thread that weaves through the entire summary, which makes it read like a mini version of the book. I had to cut several parts here to make it fit, sadly, because it is just so packed with insights.

        The Leadership Control Paradox If you’re responsible for the performance of a group, you really don’t have any control, but if you give up the control you don’t have, your team is more likely to be productive and you are more likely to be effective.   They suggest that by accepting the role of chance and trying to take advantage of the opportunities it creates, and by not trying to control what we can’t control, it is possible to attain more beneficial outcomes. This is called the “paradox of control.”.

      In Plagues and the Paradox of Progress, Thomas J. Bollyky combines a ‘germ’s eye view’ of human history with some powerful reflections on the challenges that face us over the coming is a beautifully written book, recommends Duncan Green, packed with great one-liners and historical anecdotes. This review was originally published on the blog From Poverty to Power.   “The Paradox of Choice” tries to explain the reasons behind this problem. And to give few practical pieces of advice on how to overcome it. That’s why we’re guessing that it will be appealing to a wide range of people. Those who’ve enjoyed books such as “Future Shock” by Alvin Toffler will like Schwartz’s similar book even more.
