Develop self-confidence…. Overcome procrastination and indecisiveness…. Improve your health…. Make more money….
Dr. Maxwell Maltz was a renowned pioneer in plastic surgery when he noticed that while the outward changes to his patients were a success, an inner healing and transformation was necessary for them to achieve the life changes they were seeking. Psycho-Cybernetics is a masterful synthesis of proven psychological and physiological processes, which took Dr. Maltz 29 years of research and testing to develop. His groundbreaking work Psycho-Cybernetics has become an all-time classic in the field of self-image psychology. Since its first publication, this book has inspired and helped millions to achieve ambitious and life-changing goals.
Recently revised and updated, this unabridged audio edition of Psycho-Cybernetics remains true to Dr. Maltz’s visionary approach and proven groundbreaking techniques. These techniques will lead to a dynamic new self-image, greater self-esteem, and the means to achieve a lifetime of success and happiness.

I would recommend this audiobook because it changed how I viewed myself, which in turned changed how I viewed my world and all of the obstacles that I have faced, and will face.
The contents are based upon common sense principles that we all have heard growing up, but is presented in such a way that you can connect all of the information into a tangible outline for your personal life and situations.
A conversational yet educational tone.
The realization that all of our actions and thought derive from what we believe about ourselves, and that the two go hand in hand and can not be separated.
I found out about this book by reading Dan S. Kennedy's No B.S. Books. I was reluctant to read it because of the books title. I am glad that I did not judge this book by it's cover. Before reading this book, I thought that Dan Kennedy's books had profoundly changed my life, but now I see that Dan was employing the Psycho Cybernetics principles :)
P.S. I never, EVER right reviews, for anything! No matter how much I liked it. So for me to sit down and type this review is a testament to the powerful teachings of this book!!!!!!
Dan Kennedy kind of steps over the line here, writing from Maltz's point of view, freely wielding the opinion of the long deceased plastic surgeon and self-help guru on matters such as Waterworld and Tiger Woods. Not to mention that the golf metaphors are truly astounding in volume for a book not actually about golf. I don't want to entirely torch the thing--the message is truly a great one--but, I would have preferred the original. Door-to-door salesmen references and all.
I have read a lot of personal development books from Orison Swett Marden, Dale Carnegie, Napoleon Hill, Paul J. Meyer to Jack Canfield and Dr. Maxwell Maltz has become one of my favorites! All self help books will work as long as you are willing to do the work. Psycho-Cybernetics has helped me to develop the "self-image" I have been lacking. This book is long, but very much worth the investment of time necessary. I highly recommend this book to those who have a strong desire to change and excel both personally and professionally.

I read this book originally over 30 years ago. I've re-read it many times since. The revised version is even better. It will change your life if you implement the teachings.
I was educated into oblivion but have overcome and am having a wonderful life
It's been on my shelf over 20 years. It deserved to be read! Fortunately I was able to listen to it... everywhere.
I am actually beginning to discipline my thoughts and attitudes.
Can hardly wait to listen to it again. Then again. And again. And again.

No. It was good information, but an abridged version is definitely needed. They could have conveyed the same info in half the time. Most of the time, I ran the audio at 1.5x or 2x.
Please come out with and abridged version and include some 'cliff notes' with the audio book to study later.
The original written version of Psycho-Cybernetics was decades ahead of it's time. The update and revision is well done. This is one of the best and most practically useful self-help books available.
This is a great book that i will certainly listen to again and again! I read an earlier version back in 1992 and it improved my game (softball). I can honestly say i was unaware of my potential but after reading Psycho-Cybernectics i was like a new person on and off the field.
I dont remember her name in the book be she overcame many problems physical and mental!
Easy to follow along
i don't remember hearing the term but i do remember the term successive approximations and i could identify with it in this book.
I would tell someone to get the original version of this book. Why? Because this version was WAY too much about golf. I thought this was going to give some new refined techniques from the old book. But it talked and talked and talked about golf. I'm not a golfer, I was very disappointed. I'm glad that is was only a credit that I used instead of giving up 79$ for this when Nightingale-Conant had it available only on CD.
Nothing disappointing about Mr. Maltz, but what Dan Kennedy did to this book, I didn't care for. Added a whole bunch of stories to sell the method and the method could have been focused on in about 2 chapters.
Paul just narrated the entire thing, there were no characters, this is a non-fiction course. Paul has a great voice, very soothing to listen too and help you assimilate information well.
To go get the original version and read it!!!

Obviously, the original author for this book. His observations of the human self image are invaluable, especially considering his profession.
The whole book
No extreme reactions ... but a lot of "a-ha's" and "ohhhh's" as in finally getting things.
I recommend this book to anyone who is in sales or working on their own businesses. It provides great insights, gives some practical exercises that help you with your own self-image and to create strategies for your business. This is the stuff professional athletes use and it gets results!
