Publisher's Summary

Maxwell Maltz was an American cosmetic surgeon and author of Psycho-Cybernetics, which was a system of ideas that he claimed could improve one's self-image. In turn, the person would lead a more successful and fulfilling life. He wrote several books, among which Psycho-Cybernetics was a longtime best seller - influencing many subsequent self-help teachers. His orientation toward a system of ideas that would provide self-help is considered the forerunner of the now popular self-help books.

The word cybernetic comes from the Greek for "steersman" and in the modern sense usually refers to systems of control and communication in machines and animals: how, for instance, a computer or a mouse organizes itself to achieve a task. Maltz applied the science to man to form psycho-cybernetics. However, while inspired by the development of sophisticated machines, his book denounced the idea that man can be reduced to a machine.

Psycho-Cybernetics bridges the gap between our mechanistic models of the brain's functioning (clichés like "your brain is a wonderful computer") and the knowledge of ourselves as being a lot more than machine. Maltz's genius was in saying that while we are "machines", and while the dynamics of goal setting and self-image might best be described in mechanistic terms, the fantastic variety of our desires and our ability to create new worlds are uniquely human. What could never be reduced to machine analogies are the fires of imagination, ambition, and will.

In this book, Psycho-Cybernetics and Self-Fulfillment, Dr. Maxwell Maltz teaches about: goals, self-image, happiness, and much more.

Read by Matt Furey, the president of The Psychocybernetics Foundation.

    "Just another Feel good story"

    After another life changing event, I pulled out the "feel good about your self " tapes. I saw Psychocybernetics online And thought that I would add it to my collection. I was Not thrilled, several hours of somebody telling me to feel good about my self and don't feel bad, doesn't work for me. I much prefer to learn drills and do mind exercises. Some of my favs. Are; Jose Silva's Silva's Ultramind system. Or Richard Bandler's. The Ultimate intro to NLP.
