Publisher's Summary

Cybernetics (loosely translated from the Greek): "a helmsman who steers his ship to port". Psycho-cybernetics is a term coined by Dr. Maxwell Maltz that means "steering your mind to a productive, useful goal so you can reach the greatest port in the world: peace of mind".

Since its first publication in 1960, Maltz's landmark best seller has inspired and enhanced the lives of more than 30 million readers. In this updated edition, with a new introduction and editorial commentary by Matt Furey, president of the Psycho-Cybernetics Foundation, the original text has been annotated and amplified to make Maltz's message even more relevant for the contemporary audience.

"Before the mind can work efficiently, we must develop our perception of the outcomes we expect to reach. Maxwell Maltz calls this Psycho-Cybernetics; when the mind has a defined target it can focus and direct and refocus and redirect until it reaches its intended goal." (Tony Robbins, from Unlimited Power)

Maltz was the first researcher and author to explain how the self-image (a term he popularized) has complete control over an individual's ability to achieve (or failure to achieve) any goal. And he developed techniques for improving and managing self-image - visualization, mental rehearsal, relaxation - that have informed and inspired countless motivational gurus, sports psychologists, and self-help practitioners for more than 50 years.

The teachings of psycho-cybernetics are timeless because they are based on solid science and provide a prescription for thinking and acting that lead to quantifiable results.

    "Best life improving book I have ever read"

    I read a lot of books (one a week) and this one is the absolute best book on how to actually improve your life that I have ever read. Far too often books are not able to live up to the claims they make but this one far outperforms in every way. Get this book, after you have read it you will be amazed at the very small price you paid for it, and probably be willing to have paid far more for the value you get out of it.

    Story
    "Life in it's truest form."

    Since the first 3 chapters, this book changed the way I saw the world and the way I correlated it to my life; it changed my life, it changed me. It's something that can hardly be fully described with words, but I was able to find a side of me and of my life that I never even thought it existed; I found myself. It's as if someone came and told me, "this has been your life, this has been you, but, breaking news, it doesn't have to be that way."
    This is a book that you read or listen, but which you LIVE and EXPERIENCE.
    Having Matt Furey narrate it himself adds strong emotion and a profound, personal connection to the material that will reosund with any human being willing to learn how to live and function the way we're supposed to.

    "I thought I had read the most useful books already"

    This book is addictive and yet another one for the library of knowledge I will be passing along to all my children when they are old enough to understand the material. I have been on a personal growth journey for 5 years, and this finding has been one of the best. The material not only echoes and explains further the information I have gathered to this point, it has added to the storehouse of knowledge. It's a lengthy find, but I couldn't put it down and am somewhat sad to see the end.

    "life changing"

    Powerfully and beautifully explained the way that our mind controls our behaviors. Everything is just a mental image that can be changed. Success and happiness are all in our hand if we are changing the view of life.

    "Where do I begin!?!"

    To write a review that encompasses what I have gained, would take more time than I have. I will say this is a must read for anyone striving to live her full potential. Awesome content!

    "A Must Read!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Listen to this book at 1.25 speed for his normal speaking voice.

    This book is incredibly fascinating. Humans are easily programmed but most of us in the civilized world were being bombarded from birth and became programmed by many external forces. Television time slots are literally called "programming"

    How funny is that? Imagine having a civilization full of robots and you design the way they think.

    The thoughts and techniques in this book will give you an actionable game plan to program yourself

    I would also recommend looking into mindfulness meditation. Headspace.com is a good start. You gain the ability to observe your thoughts instead of identifying with them. You can only "know" this feeling if you have experiential evidence so go try it for yourself. It will help you separate the oil & the water of your personality.

    Look to the people you admire the most on the planet, the pieces of their personality are your reference material. Wishing you a full and beautiful life.

    "i wish I had read this book 20 yrs ago."

    I believed that having a positive mental picture was a good idea, but this book explains why it is crucial to achieving anything worthwhile. if you do not like the results you have in life it is all based on the pictures and feelings you are rehearsing in your mind.

    "Ahead Of His Time"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Already have! This book answers so many questions.


    What did you like best about this story?

    If you know there is something to personal development, but have been put off by the hype and thanking the universe for stuff, this will help. The premise is so simple, but so profound.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    You can dip in and out, but it needs to be listened to more than once.

    "A Masterpiece narrated by a knucklehead"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I can't believe that a knucklehead like Matt Fury has managed to get his grubby opportunist gutter marketeer hands on this classic.having to listen to his interjections is like listening to a Mozart piece of music being critiqued by a tone deaf busker....


    What other book might you compare Psycho-Cybernetics to, and why?

    This book is the daddy of almost all the modern age self help visualization genre, minus all the fluff.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    stuck to selling silly wrestling courses online...


    Was Psycho-Cybernetics worth the listening time?

    yes, minus the narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    buy the original version.
