Reviews of Maxwell Maltzâ€™'s original Psycho-Cybernetics:
â€œPsycho-Cybernetics is a classic personal development book. Most of the current speakers in the area of personal development, including Zig Ziglar, Tony Robbins, Brian Tracy and others owe a debt to Maxwell Maltz for the foundation of their material. The psychological training of Olympic athletes is also based on the concepts in Psycho-Cybernetics. Thousands, possibly millions, of people have benefited by putting these ideas to work. Put Psycho-Cybernetics on your â€˜"must-readâ€™" list.â€--Michael C. Gray, Profit Advisorsâ€œPublished in 1960, Psycho-Cybernetics remains one the classics of self-help, self-improvement, and personal development.â€--Mind of Success
â€œAn invaluable aid to the layman, offering a sound, scientific method of practical self-improvement.â€--Mark Freeman, Ph.D., clinical psychologistâ€œThis classic by Maxwell Maltz is considered by many experts in the field to be the grandfather of all self-help books. Although it was written in 1960, Psycho-Cybernetics is just as relevant more than 50 years later. His timeless tenets offer a road map for self-image improvement and better quality of life.â€--Gayot.com
â€œMaxwell Maltz, author of Psycho-Cybernetics, was an early exponent of the visualization principle. Almost half a century ago, he captures a truth that can literally transform the way we think, act, and communicate.â€--Bert Decker, Youâ€™ve Got to Be Believed to Be Heardâ€œPsycho-Cybernetics has sold in its millions because it provides a scientific rationale for dream fulfillment. The science and computing references are now outdated, but the principles of cybernetics have only grown in influence. Complexity theory, artificial intelligence, and cognitive science all grew out if the cybernetic understanding of how the non-physical, the â€˜â€œghost in the machine,â€™â€ guides matter. This makes Psycho-Cybernetics the perfect self-help book for a technical culture.â€--Tom Butler-Bowdon, 50 Self-Help Classics
â€œPsycho-Cybernetics was written back in 1960, but it was way ahead of its time. Maxwell Maltz was a successful plastic surgeon in the States, and he was puzzled by the attitudes of some of his patients whose plastic surgery was successful, but they still felt ugly inside. This book explores the psychology of self-image, and its profound effects on all our lives. But Maxwell Maltz goes further, and sets out an action plan to change your self-image from a disempowering one to an empowering one. Ever wondered how some people seem effortlessly successful, wealthy, fit and healthy, while others struggle and seem to get nowhere? The answers lie in the concepts set out in this book: the self-image, the subconscious mind, the power of visualization, relaxed concentration, goal-setting.â€--Fitness4London
