    "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.

    No characters in this book, but Paul Michael has a great voice and keeps it interesting.

    "Improve your outlook on life!"
    What made the experience of listening to The New Psycho-Cybernetics the most enjoyable?

    This book is full of great information! I have already recommended it to several of my friends as I know just about anyone will benefit from the information in it.

    Minor Cons: The last chapter is hooey, the book isn't exactly scientific, and there are some references to God - that being said, the information is still extremely valuable and even though I'm an atheist with a strong aversion to any religious material, I still consider this book to be excellent.

    Buy it now, don't waste any more time!

    "Transformative"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'd recommend this to anyone who wants to quit whinning about their life and get on with it. I found out I had way more power to create life the way I want it than I thought.


    What other book might you compare The New Psycho-Cybernetics to and why?

    There's no comparison.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from The New Psycho-Cybernetics?

    I've been applying the lessons to my life and it's paying off. I trippled my income in the last month. Doesn't get much better than that.

    "Not good in audio format"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. Read the original book, not this new audio format


    Was The New Psycho-Cybernetics worth the listening time?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    The original book is a classic of self-help and contains some nuggets of wisdom. But it is a good book for rapid skimming and then chapter review, possibly highlighting.

    This audiobook format is bad for a number of reasons. Chief amongst these is the new editor has interspersed his own thoughts and updates in what he considers "the author's voice." This adds nothing but excess time. There are no new advances considered.

    Listening to this is painful. I should have gone to a used bookstore and gotten the 60s paperback for 50 cents. I have come to the realization that non-fiction isn't generally good in audio format.

    "Excellent. Must-Read"
    Where does The New Psycho-Cybernetics rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Right up there with the best self-growth books I've read.


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

    Hearing that current celebrities and coaches you admire follow the concepts illustrated in this book.


    What aspect of Paul Michael’s performance would you have changed?

    It would be easier to absorb the substance of this book if his voice flowed more. He sounded mechanical which was fine during storytelling. During the teaching of concepts, I found myself rewinding often.


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

    It was hard to turn off the audiobook but necessary In order to really think about each concept.


    Any additional comments?

    As a whole-
    This book is life-changing. Not just concepts but actual TOOLS to help move forward, grow...get over the hang-ups we carry that hold us back. I didn't necessarily agree with everything stated but that definitely didn't tarnish what the book offers as a whole.
    Speakers voice sounds a bit mechanical but you'll get used to it.
    About to start my second-listen.
    Highly recommended!
