Publisher's Summary

Tap into the power of The New Psycho-Cybernetics.

Do you struggle daily to reach your goals, overcome obstacles, and eliminate pesky worries about your future?

Most of us still live by the motto, “No pain, no gain.” But this approach to life is actually a prescription for fear, frustration, and self-doubt.

Much of what we learn about success is based on the pain/gain idea: in essence, work harder, be more persistent, and develop greater willpower. The New Psycho-Cybernetics formula is anything but painful. It will allow you to achieve all your goals, faster, easier, and with less strain than you ever thought possible.

Entrepreneurial genius Dan Kennedy has teamed up with Dr. Maxwell Maltz to create The New Psycho-Cybernetics: A Mind Technology for Living Your Life without Limits. Dr. Maltz’s principles of Psycho-Cybernetics have inspired and enhanced the lives of more than 30 million people around the world. Dr. Maltz invented a simple, step-by-step program that will help you replace a negative self-image with positive affirmations of empowerment.

The New Psycho-Cybernetics will help you:

  • Deprogram yourself from self-doubt and negative self-evaluators.
  • Respond to stressful events with positive, corrective action.
  • Improve your self-image and reprogram yourself for success.
  • Learn to recognize potential signs of danger and avoid failure.
  • Overcome resistance to change.
  • Cope with important responsibilities without feeling overwhelmed.
  • Use a variety of techniques to virtually eliminate stress and anxiety from your life.
  • Learn a 10-point program for daily self-image strength conditioning.
  • And much more...

NOTE: This version is Dan Kennedy's Interpretation

I didn't read who the author was before I purchased this version and I certainly wish I had. If you are a fan of Dan Kennedy, you'll appreciate this book. If you're not a fan of name dropping and bragging and really just want the psycho-cybernetics material, this is NOT the book for you! Psycho-cybernetic concepts are so valuable that I can't decrease the stars for the story, but the whole me, me, and more about ME material of this book was tough to get through and thus why I rated the performance so poorly. It got to the point that I wanted to re-listen just to count the number of "I" and "me" sentences crammed into this book! Then, I got the visual of Gilderoy Lockhart in the Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets movie in my head and I just couldn't keep it together at that point. I stopped listening and bought the actual psycho-cybernetics instead.

good material, bad bragging narrator

the narrator is a bragging every section he speaks in. took lots of my time to get the "meat and potatoes" of the book. Maltz speaks in small fragments of chapters towards the end of each chapter. its still good material,

My Self-Image is immune to your criticism.

Would you listen to The New Psycho-Cybernetics again? Why?

This is one thing I got from reading this book that I've added to my munitions case. I had to listen 3 times before I "got it". But I think I got it. Starting the new year out with the exercises recommended to build the life I want.

Any additional comments?

If self improvement is your quest. You found the right place.

Great book, well read.

I really enjoyed the narration. Very calm well read. It made listening to the whole thing easy and pleasant. Very useful knowledge too. I plan to follow the instructions and heal myself and elevate my self image and my success. This is a great book for everyone and a must read for anyone who feels crippled by challenges and that has the same challenges repeat over and over again.

Dan Kennedy’s ego trip ruins the audio

Psycho-Cybernetics is one of the greatest books ever. Dan Kennedy is a braggart that used the title of the book to promote his ego. Don’t waste your money on this version. Get the original without Dan Kennedy promoting himself.

Get this, listen, implement!

If you could sum up The New Psycho-Cybernetics in three words, what would they be?

Effective self-image re-programming.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The New Psycho-Cybernetics?

There was a moment when it all clicked... "your willpower cannot out-perform your self-image..."

What about Maxwell Maltz and Dan Kennedy ’s performance did you like?

Dan Kennedy is not a '"rah-rah" type of speaker. Instead he is clear, includes enough voice inflection to keep you interested, and moves along at a good pace. The older recordings of Dr. Maltz are obviously from a period when the recording quality was not as high, but it's still great to hear from the original author.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

To be honest, this book has really influenced me. I've read the book as well, but I listen to this when I go out for my run. It doesn't make me laugh or cry... but it has helped me to understand both my successes and failures in life.

Any additional comments?

Highly recommended.

Incredibly Life changing

Loved it! Practical exercises to start making changes to your way of thinking and your life at work, home and socially.
It would be even better if a section could be added just of exercise from all chapters in one, like a summary

All you need to turn your life around

Your self image is the most important aspect of who you are and determines how far you can go in life. Knowledge and experience can be acquired easily overtime but if your ambitions do not align with your inner you then success will mostly elude you. Hence the reason why this audio book is a must have.

Best format yet!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

There are many versions of this book, some edited by other people, some are only 'based' on psycho cybernetics, some are the original text from Dr. Maltz. But this one beats all of them. Good audio quality, narrated by the author, and effectively modernized to make it more appealing. Great Product!

Beyond Bad. Beyond Parody. Beyond Offensive.

I listen to a lot of this kind of thing because I'm interested in the psychology of performance and confidence. I downloaded this because it had a scientific sounding title, it talk about a 'mind technology' which always convinces the gullible like me, and because I've liked Dan Kennedy's marketing books.

What a mistake!

The audiobook is a development on Dr Maxwell Maltz's work by Dan Kennedy and the "Psycho-Cybernetics Institute" and takes the listener through a series of techniques and behaviours to improve one's self image presented in quasi-scientific way.

The late Dr Maltz is presented as prophet in his field, apparently inventing visualisation, which will come as a surprise to those civilisations who have been meditating for millennia. So reverently does Dan Kennedy refer to Dr Maltz's work you'd assume he was one of the leading psychologists of the last century.

Not so.

He was a plastic surgeon.

That pretty much tells you all you need to know.

The content of the book covers the basic bases of developing a positive self image, but the techniques and examples are well past their sell by date, embarrassingly so in some cases, superseded by newer and much better researched works.

The narration combines Dan Kennedy (a marketer) and archive material of Dr Maltz.

For a guy who wrote books like "The No BS Guide to Direct Marketing" you might expect a strident, confident presenter but instead Kennedy is pretty meek and laid back to the point of somnambulism. Not that this stops him coming across as arrogant as he frequently tells the listener about his public speaking gigs when he is rubbing shoulders with luminaries such as Bill Cosby. Oh! How I bet he wishes he could edit that out.

Kennedy confesses to being no motivational speaker (and ain't that the truth) by he is a positive Anthony Robbins compared with the speak-your-weight-machine-monotone of Dr Maltz.

And why offensive? Two particular areas literally made me wince out loud. The first example from Dr Maltz, when he tells us that any actress who doesn't learn her lines or "look after her looks" should soon find herself out of work. It's an old fashioned view of women but this is archive material.

There is no such mitigation for Kennedy's assertion that both depression and cancer can be attributed to a bad attitude.

For that damaging, narrow-minded, idiotic comment alone this book should be deleted from Audible's catalogue and consigned to history.

Timeless advice on personal development

This is a fairly old book but the advice within has been relevant for centuries and is still relevant today. The core concept is not positive thinking - it is more ‘positive-doing’. Valuable advice on how to change your perspective and live your life to your fullest potential.

Great but…

This program is great. The only issue I feel is that some of the topics are spoken from a high-level points of you and simply call to refer to the guide book for exercises. What I would love to see is more step-by-step process of how to achieve the topics and the ideals which are discussed in the book

This is very informative, the idea of using creative imagination instead of will power/motivation and most importantly, the importance self image.
