    I am a middle aged male who thinks radio is bubble gum for the brain, so I listen to books in the car. At least one a month.

    "I keep thinking about this book"
    If you could sum up The New Psycho-Cybernetics in three words, what would they be?

    Self Image is Powerful


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Failure and Success Mechanisms


    Any additional comments?

    I found myself talking with people about what I had learned several times after listening to this book. It is most powerful in the middle. A plastic surgeon's view on how self image drives our lives. IQ is not the most powerful predictor of success in life, it is self image.
    If you are a thinker, this one if for you.

    "Life Changing with Instructions"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The New Psycho-Cybernetics to be better than the print version?

    I wish I had this information when I was in my twenties. I am fifty six and I am now more confident and completely at peace with my own self image. I tell everyone who will listen about this program. Love it!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The New Psycho-Cybernetics?

    When the man was convinced he had a voodoo curse on him and he only had a little piece of scar tissue removed and suddenly he was healed. Just goes to prove as a man believe so is he.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The voodoo scene.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes but it is to good to do it only once. As for me I will listen to it over and over again.


    Any additional comments?

    Get it, use it, and use it again.

    "A life changer "

    One of the most outstanding motivational books. Gives a guideline on how to understand inner self and the power of subconscious. The narrator made it a great journey.

    "Not Scientific"
    What would have made The New Psycho-Cybernetics better?

    Better information based on facts, scientific research, and peer reviewed literature.


    Would you recommend The New Psycho-Cybernetics to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, because some of the information is inaccurate.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It could be inspiring to some people, particularly those not familiar with science.


    Any additional comments?

    A lot of the "analogies" in the book were difficult to grasp at first, but I stuck with it. The story kept getting more abstract over the duration, but I had to stop reading when the book was promoting that telepathy was real. There is probably some good information in the book, but for the most part I am calling bull.

    "A must read..."
    What did you love best about The New Psycho-Cybernetics?

    The practicality of the book and it's applicability to my life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    N/a


    Have you listened to any of Paul Michael’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    What did you learn from The New Psycho-Cybernetics that you would use in your daily life?

    I can't say I learned anything new, this book nourished and revived the seeds that had already been planted.


    Any additional comments?

    When I first began listening, I turned it off after 15-20 min, I thought the reader and material was dry. I tried to get a refund for this book, but the request would never go through. I decided to skip through the chapters and for me, starting at chapter 12 of the audio book , I realized that I struck gold! This book has been life giving, I have played various parts of this daily.

    "Amazing Book (despite wacky title)"
    Would you listen to The New Psycho-Cybernetics again? Why?

    Yes, absolutely. It's so jam-packed with great life wisdom. Despite the wacky title, it's incredibly grounded and delivered so many life lessons it got me nodding my head over and over again.

    For example... in the book, he questions why we worry so much after making a decision...

    Maltz compares the situation to gamblers who calmly place their bet on the roulette wheel, but then get stressed *after* the wheel has started turning. That makes no sense!

    The time to be stressed is *before* placing the bet.... that's the time to consider the odds, consider the bet amount, and/or walk away altogether.

    But once the bet is made and the wheel is turning? It's out of your hands at that point... the odds are the odds, your bet is confirmed, and so there's not much you can do anymore.

    Same with life. The time to worry about a decision is *before* its made. And once the decision is made? Release all stress, and be prepared to go with the flow until you need to make the next decision.

    So wise!


    Any additional comments?

    I used to be a raving fan of "The Secret", at a time of my life when I was eager to drink whatever kool-aid I could. Then realized how much I was deluded. I've come to really resent all books in that realm.

    So when I heard that Psycho-cybernetics (still can't get over the ridiculousness of that name, LOL!) included some visualization, my B.S-dar immediately went into full-defence mode. But the book had been so deeply recommended by some pretty sharp, no-BS marketers (i.e. Dan Kennedy), that I decided to still check it out, albeit *on probation*.

    I came to understand that Maltz's version of visualization is dramatically different than what practicioners of "The Secret" espouse. "Law of Attraction" stuff may be true (who knows?), but the culture around "The Secret" is the real cancer. Setup a visionboard, think positively and blam-o, sports car in your driveway.

    Psycho-cybernetics is not like that. It's in alignment with what athletes and other performers do before competing / performing. To imagine the positive result. To get clear on what you want, and make that an instruction to your sub-conscious... to maximize (although not guarantee) the possibility of that vision becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy once you hit the stage / start playing. Just think of the Olympics... the few moments before a sprint happens... you see all the athletes getting "in the zone". That kind of thing.

    (Important Distinction: Maltz says that after visualization you still have to actually play / perform / do the work... it won't just "appear"... that's the big difference between PsychoCybo and the culture around "The Secret".)

    Having performed on many occasions myself (sports and music), and having studied visualization for athletic performance in my University degree, I feel strongly that there's value in it. And that value has produced better results for me during the actual performance than not doing visualizations.

    So from that place, and for those reasons, I support Psycho-Cybernetics... even the potentially-suspicious visualization stuff.

    Will definitely listen to this again in the not-too-distant future! Thanks for the great book Dr. Maltz. Your legacy lives on.
