Caution: Do not use visualization or relaxation techniques while driving, operating dangerous machinery, or performing any task that requires your complete concentration, such as child care.
Maltz's original book is a masterpiece. Sadly Kennedy wrote a new version which is much longer. He has dumbed down Maltz's book. Don't bother to get this book.
Just get the original Pschocybernetics and study that. It is loaded with gems.
Kenney's addition is loaded with trash.
The performance is fine. The content is a disgusting dumming down of Maltz's masterpiece
This is an exceptional audio program. So much so that I have listened to it many times over, and more recently purchased the printed book. I highly recommend using both formats in concert, the book as a study guide, and the audio program as a method of reinforcing the overall message of the book in your (the reader's) mind. This is far and away my favorite Audible title, and I have amassed quite a few in the short time I have been a member.
I've read tons of self-help books and this one has by far the most practical information. It is very easy to understand and keeps my attention. The person reading the book really does an excellent job at making you believe he is the actual author.
I am only halfway through this listen, but must say the ideas and concepts presented so far can be life changing (life improving) if one decides to use them. To think Maltz first wrote PC in 1960 - he was a true pioneer of the self-improvement movement. I am not quite certain what is Kennedy's work and which is Malt's work, however the two mesh well and give the listenner a lot to work with. It is not what happen's to us that impacts us as much as how we perceive what happens to us. Insecure individuals usually attempt to display power and material things to show their worth and if we realize this we won't let their quirks effect us as we may otherwise do. Also, visualization can often be as effective as physically doing something in regards to learning something - visually practising the piano or golf for example. These are just a few of the concepts presented. All in all I feel most anyone can benefit from listenning and practicing some of what is presented in this book.

This is a great book! It basically fills in some of the gaps in Napolean Hill's philosophy of success. I've seen immediate results from using some of the techniques.
As a continual reader of and participant in personal development programs, I found this to be outstanding. It was my first Audible.com selection. I found Kennedy has very nicely blended Maltz's timeless ideas with more current content to provide an extremely useful program.
Interesting that a plastic surgeon would be the one to figure out the keys to happiness and success in the mental realm.
Every book I've read about NLP and reprogramming the subconscious seems to have its roots in this book.
I hope Maltz's other books will be available on Audio Book here soon.
This book is packed with very useable insights and excercises. It has help me very effectively handle the chairmanship of a conference and has improved my relationships and my confidence. It contains a set of success basics that everyone should know.
Try not to have high expectations for this audio book. The concepts are accurate but long and redundant. The narrator, Paul Michael, speaks in an excellent tone with clarity and sound.
Anyone with self image issues should read this book. It's excellent! It may be an old book, but the content is probably more relevant today than ever.
I will be buying hardbacks of this book for all my freinds and family and have it on constant repeat . if you have any doubts in getting this dont it will be the best money you spend
"A bit dated but definitely worth it."
Psycho-Cybernetics sounds a bit si-fi but its really about directing your subconscious and letting a big part of the business of achieving your goals be done in the background. Its not about just saying affirmations and moving, its more scientific and once you start doing it it makes sense and is actually very normal and structured. Deciding on what you want to achieve, picturing it in your mind and letting part of the achievement happen in the background. A bit like trying to remember someone's name that doesn't come until you stop thinking about it and all of a sudden it pops into the forefront.
The book is a bit dated but the topic has been around for a long time. I have listened to it twice especially when I get caught up in the fast pace of life and things don't seem to be going my way. Definitely worth a listen if this is your sort of thing.
I cannot go anywhere without a copy of this book .the audio book is even better.
This book is a game changer. it will forever change how you view your psyche and self for the better.highly recommended!
This is the most fascinating, indispensable and invaluable book I've ever read in my life. Be ready to see yourself through new and successful lens.
Psycho-Cybernetics is the instruction manual for the mind you always wanted but never believed existed. I wish I’d been told about this thirty-some years ago on my first day at junior school. This is a book that could make such a difference to the world. Why aren’t people talking about it?
It is one of the must read books for your mind. See also, Napoleon Hill's, "Think and Grow Rich (1937 Edition): The Original 1937 Unedited Edition", here at Audible.
It's - never - too - late.
"A life changing book."
If you want to transform your life do what it says in this book. That's a win
Life changing... I have noticed things happen in my life even before reading this book. The book explains it better and I am going to keep reading and practicing the teachings until it is ingrained in my very being...
"All Professional Speakers are copying Dr Maltz"
If you're looking for answers how to change yourself, become happier, wealthier in relaxed and balance way... this is it! I've been in so many seminars, listened to many life coaches and they all are using principles in Psycho-Cybernetics. Most of them are charging enormous amounts of money too.
Everyone needs just this book and practical lessons or advice to acomplish anything they want in their lives. The best book!
