I own well over 1000 self-help books and CDs. In addition, as a public speaker, I spend at least $40,000 per year going to advanced training. THIS IS THE BEST OF THE BEST! I purchased the book which describes in detail the process to use to jump start a better life for you. In just three short weeks, I have accomplished goals I struggled with for months. Wow! Wow! Wow! I recommend this product to anyone who is serious about changing their level of consciousness and therefore, their level of success in this world! Follow the process outlined to your success!
I mean it!
I am sorely tempted to go and buy a gross and hand them out on the street!
A plastic surgeon notes that some of his patients suffer from image problems even though their physical abnormalities have been corrected or never existed to begin with. He investigates. He uses his medical knowledge and keen mind to explore the issue.
The result is this awesome book on how to turn your life around and keep on the good path.
Originally published in 1960, this book is the grand-daddy of self-help books.This version has been thoroughly updated with new scientific findings and current examples.
The narration and sound quality are excellent.
I have listened to this book at least 3 times so far and I haven't even got started. Don't pass this book up, you will not know what you are missing. Good useful information.
So I agree with most people here that this is a great book and I'm about to read it again.
I was directed to the book after reading another extremely good book on weight management which was quoting Psycho-cybernetics. So my interest was piqued and I bought this book. Needless to say I'm happy I bought the book. Reading it was like a switch turning on a light. I could immediately identify and recognize parts of my own self image that needed changing. I have applied the principles to my life with good results/changes already. I have convinced my wife to read it also and purchased some hard copies to use as "Manuals"
My advice - buy the book, listen to it, be open to the concepts, and apply them. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
I bought this thinking okay another self help book; let me see what it can?t do. To my surprise this is probably the last and only self help book I?ll ever need. From a business and personal point of view, it's a book ahead of its time. We live in a I want it yesterday, multi-task society where we never seem to get enough done. This book tells you how to slow down, stop worrying and complete one task at a time. There is no such thing as multi-tasking. It teaches how to unselfishly love you. It tells you how to stop ridiculing yourself for making mistakes because mistakes are just another opportunity to get it right. This is a phenomenal book.
I would focus more on the content and message of the book. This is a very strange book. The entire thing is a commercial for the book. So much so that I feel like I didn't even read anything about Psycho-Cybernetics and need to listen the original in order to get the message.
There are many books that state the same message much better in my opinion. Ask and It Is Given, the Law of Attraction, Think and Grow Rich to name a few.
This is a self-help book that will stand the test of time. Maltz reveals sometime that is very profound: The things that happen to us in life are a result of our self-image. There is no pretentious language, just simple examples and intelligent insights that make the book even more powerful. I found that audio is a very good medium for self-help books because its message will sink into your head much easier.
I'm not a "touchy feely" type, so when I say that this book made a direct & positive impact on my life it is not faint praise. Understanding how our minds work has improved my outlook, and then my results in business, and personally. I listened to this the first time about 4 years ago and began practicing some of the simple prescriptions and found within a month or so things really started to improve. I still review this from time to time, and the lessons found here led me to try numerous others. I highly recommend.
Choose this if you must buy THE self-help bible. It's the SOURCE of all self-improvement programs. Well worth my time and money ten times over.
This is so full of sound information for the most effective way of living. Once you get that winning feeling it is easy to be able to keep it to some degree. It is a very addictive feeling. No drud on earth can replace that high.
"Insightful and very interesting"
Disagree with negative review. Although this is a book first written in the early 60s and does have a thread running through it, it is one of those books that turns a light bulb on in your head. The original author was a cosmetic surgeon who found that although you can physically treat various conditions with the knife it often didn't help to change the way patients felt about themselves. The book addresses the effect of self image on success and achievement in life. I found this was explained very well and the methods of influencing and changing this seem to be effective and an interesting listen.
"I'll Listen to This At Least Twice a Year Now"
I have the paperback of the original Psycho-Cybernetics but went looking for an audio book version and found this. I have to say honestly it's a 5 star book.
I am glad that Audible now have a star rating for the 'performance' because Paul Michael not only does an excellent job of narrating it but he sounds a lot like Maxwell Maltz.
I'd strongly recommend listening to this book repeatedly because it's so deep.
"The New Psycho-Cybernetics (Unabridged)"
This is superb, both the book and the narrative. Your libaray is not complete without this book. The narrative was very clear, easy to listen to and follow and it felt as if I was listening to the author(s)- depicted the sentiment of the book. I am very glad I purchased it.
"Excellent - Ignore Negative Review"
As stated in this book, the basis of every self improvement book written since 1960 contain concepts taken from Psycho Cybernetics. This book doesn't just tell you how to think, it tells you what to actually DO to get in the right frame of mind to change your life. I will be listening to this a few more times before this goes on the book shelf!
"Intersting, helpful and pragmatic"
My title says it all. Maybe add: "intelligent and well-informed". I have confidence in what this guy says.
Nicely done update of an old classic. Well recorded and presented, full of good ideas.
A worthwhile read.
If you need guidance on how to help yourself fulfil your potential and destroy negative feelings , this book is for you. It's so enlightening and feels you with hope and belief!
"One of the best books I think in this genre"
I listen to audiobooks every day whilst working. I am fascinated in self improvement and mainly listen to books in the subject. I think this is a highly effective, user friendly, inspiring and engrossing book. This would work well for someone who is out off by 'airy fairy' concepts and presentations. Thank you for a great product.
I love this book, listen again and again ... hard to choose another when I have this!
It is just easy to listen to, understand and work with the principles.
How not to be an Android
"Very practical, easy to listen and mind-opening"
This is one of the best books I have ever listened to. I want to find the paper copy of it as well.
Nicely read, and full of great insights about human brain, behavior, based on solid research and real-life stories.
Plenty of practical suggestions about how to change the habits and your life.
