About The BOOK


Chatter reveals the hidden power of our inner voice and shows how we can harness it to live a healthier, more satisfying, and a more productive life. Tell a stranger that you talk to yourself, and you’re likely to get written off as eccentric. But the truth is that we all have a voice in our head.

When we talk to ourselves, we often hope to tap into our inner coach but find our inner critic instead. Kross explains how these conversations shape our lives, work, and relationships. He warns that giving in to negative and disorienting self-talk—what he calls “chatter”—can tank our health, sink our moods, strain our social connections, and cause us to fold under pressure. Kross says the good news is, “we’re already equipped with the tools we need to make our inner voice work in our favor”.
