I liked it better, only because I can put on my headphones and crawl into bed. I don't usually fall asleep for a couple of hours anyway, so this way I can read, get relaxed and drift off.
This was my first experience with a audible book, but he did a great job! I was worried that I wouldn't like the way the information was read to me, but I loved it!
I highly recommend this book! I had read it 40 years ago and have often revisited the information I had learned from it. It was interesting when re-reading the book, to realize how many things I had been drawing from it all these years later. It's a great self help book, with exercises to reinforce your learning experience. It is well read and I really enjoyed the experience of having it read to me!
I liked that this book has been updated, but even from the original stories, I got the intention of the message. Focus on what you want and it will happen. I'm a golfer & really enjoyed the golf parables.
brilliant, necessary, interesting
the brain that changes itself because it has many of the core concepts found in neuroscience
Yes, because I like it. It is a great listen on a great subject. 5 stars
I think Paul Mitchell made this book even better
Apply what you have learned.
Yes this is a book you should listen to over and over even individual sections. There is so much to digest. The main problem with the book is the prologue and first two chapters are slow but after that, this book is full of useful and insightful information.
Doctor Maltz himself is the best character of the book. To find such honesty in a plastic surgeon is rare especially today.
It is difficult to pick out a specific scene from the book given the type of book this is. However the many patients he has that don't need plastic surgery but mental surgery and the explanation of why this is, helps the listener to understand themselves and those around them.
I am not sure where in the book it was, but there was a time near the end where I understood that I was having an identity crisis due to a career change. This one bit of understanding has helped me greatly in my new work life.
If you are into personal development at all then this is the foundation of all other works. Listen, read, absorb this book and you will understand every other author and speaker in the field of personal development much better.
This book will change your life! Its the kind of book you listen to over and over and it opens your mind beyond then normal way on thinking..masterpiece! This book may not be for everyone it requires an intelligence above normal.
Highly recommend this audio book! The information provided is truly insightful and inspiring. Paul Michael is enjoyable to listen to as well.
So good I am using it to teach my class on 'Self Development'
The study of your self concious is the same and as powerful as Dale Carnegies 9 Principals. The study, conducted over 40 years is backed back scientific evidence to dozens of personal case studies. It is true, it is all in your mind, and you can change your mind..And it is easier than you think. Amazing Insight.
I read a lot of fantastic reviews for this book on Amazon.com. Not having alot of time for reading I was happy to find it on Audible.com. I was even happier to find that Audible had an app for my Motorola Droid so I could listen to it almost anywhere I went!
This book reduces and isolates all self help concepts down to the self image. It basically states that you will ALWAYS act and think strictly in accordance with the image that you hold of yourself in your mind. It talks alot about how this causes self imposed limitations. It's from here that it gives you practical ideas & exercises to help you change your self image.
I've only been listening to it for about a week, but I'm already questioning & challenging thoughts & ideas I've accepted about myself for my whole life! The only parts of the book that I don't particularly care for are the authors references to god & the bible. I think the book could have been just as informative & effective without the author pitching his religious belief to the reader. I still highly recommend it as one of the best self help books I've ever found!!!
Say something about yourself!
Very good foundation for the literature. The style is a little dated, but Kennedy has done a good job of making the content current.
