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.
This book is changing my life for the better and it will continue to do so! Buy this book and absorb it!
If your looking for a self help book, this one is good to start with. Very good back ground and simple to follow. They should teach this in high schools.
The techniques are good and as valid as the day Dr. Maltz first put them forth 40 years ago. I read the original in 1972 and it was worth the money I spent on it many times over. I looked forward to see what "New" insights the manuscript had. On the one hand, the updates were interesting but I found the Political Correctness to be overwhelming in the end. I found I was tuning myself out with every subsequent reference to "she" or "her". In the end, I bought a copy of the original for a lot less and enjoyed reading it much more.
My mother brought this book home sometime while I was in High School and I read much of it then. I bought this version because it would be interesting to consider 30 years later.
Way, way too much time spent making claims about the orginality, effectiveness and influence of the model, which is really no more than 'we are more likely to hit targets that we visualize clearly." True.
