About the Author

The late Dr. Maxwell Maltz was a prolific author, lecturer, and Professor of Plastic Surgery at Universities in Nicaragua and El Salvador. Dan S. Kennedy is a marketing consultant, popular professional speaker, and author of nine books. He is the CEO of the Psycho-Cybernetics Foundation and author of The New Psycho-Cybernetics audio program.

From AudioFile

A classic of self-help literature is presented in an abbreviated version. Maltz was a plastic surgeon who ultimately recommended changing our attitudes towards ourselves, rather than our appearances. Presenting positive attitude as a means for change, Maltz's teaching has the ring of common sense. Testimonials and stories are interspersed with advice from Maltz. Techniques for relaxation and visualization are also covered. Archival recordings of Maltz's talks are interspersed with moderators' instructions. Maltz's speeches are particularly enjoyable. His humor and straightforward approach are refreshing. E.L.C. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The original Psycho-Cybernetics had a massive impact on my life. From it, I learned that I could control my thoughts and substitute encouraging, strengthening, creativity-enhancing thinking habits ("programming") for the less than optimal habits I'd picked up from family, friends, school, work, society etc. HOW you think makes ALL the difference and there has never been a book that clarifies the mechanisms of productive thinking better than Psycho-Cybernetics. This new edition is, amazingly enough, even better than the original. It's clearer, easier to follow, and even more compelling. I'll always be grateful to the person who recommended this to me when I was 20 years old. Twenty two years later, I'm living a life most people only dream of. I owe it all to my outlook and this book was where I began to make the connection between outlook and happiness and results in life. Essential reading.

I don't make it a habit to read self-help books, but the off-color fitness guru Matt Furey has made a killing on selling a program based off of Maltz's work, and most other "motivational speakers" usually bend a knee in respect to Maltz as a forerunner. So I picked up a cheap used copy and read it cover to cover. The only question I have left is why anyone would bother with any of the other crap. This book effectively condenses the entirety of the self-help field. As far as I can tell, this is as good as it gets by the standards of the genre, is enjoyably accessible to a general audience, and has weathered time's attack on its relevance stunningly well.

Firstly, Maltz had the raw clinical experience necessary to write this kind of book. As a crackerjack plastic surgeon he saw immediately and firsthand the life-changing or life-stalling power of self-image at work in the faces of his patients. (And anyone who scoffs at unorthodox contributors to a research field ought to know that Albert Einstein was working for the Swiss patent office when he submitted the Theory of Special Relativity.) Yet Maltz also admits where exactly the limits of his knowledge lie rather than try to convince the reader of his omniscience.

Secondly, Maltz was receptive to many fundamental tenets of psychology and philosophy and works them into Psycho Cybernetics clearly and without contradiction. Nor does he try to repackage ancient metaphysical hokum with inane and feeble examples.

Thirdly, there are no workshops, special reports, live phone help, or products to buy. (Though I cannot speak for the organization that has cropped up around Maltz's name.) All pretense and exaggeration for marketing purposes seem absent from his book.

I really love this book...I have never read a book that contained such positive wisdom and helpful insights on how to be a successful person. Dr. Maltz was a plastic surgeon and a humanitarian, who truly cared about helping people. He had plenty of money being one of the few plastic surgeons of his day--He unselfishly wrote this book from center of his heart. I can't even think about it without getting teary-eyed! His principles are based on some of his psychological experiences as a plastic surgeon. He compared a low self-esteem as being similar to the facial flaws of his plastic surgery patients, and how you can fix your self-esteem to become a better you. He offers useful advice on how to avoid letting your negative thoughts make you a failure. He suggests how one's attitude alone can influence his/her success-level. He also has ideas on how to not let the hateful, hurtful things people say keep you from the success you deserve. His book healed me, and taught me that I have control over my life and destiny. Dr. Maltz passed away some time ago, but his compassion for countless others lives on.

Napoleon Hill founded the laws of success, Dale Carnegie taught us how to win friends and Maxwell Maltz taught us how to live it all. This book has in my opinion, what 99.9% of books will forever lack - and that's common sense. There is no need for hype, Maltz speaks the truth which is refreshing in this day and age. He teaches (and in my opinion was the first to teach) the art of compassion, self- respect, relaxation, forgiveness and the art of being a professional human being. In this book you will learn that it doesn't matter how many success principles you know, that if you really want to change you must do so through the self-image -the foundation for all success. It is a book filled with wisdom, humor and hope. So if you want to change and live a better life overall, then buy this book. Take a knife and cut through the diddle daddle and motivation found in those other so-called self-help books. After all, how many other authors have 33 million copies in print over a 40 year life span? BUY IT!

After having read the original psycho-cybernetics years ago, i purchased this and was very disappointed. Dan Kennedy has done an injustice to this great classic. The additional stories he has added in all thru out the book are painful to read, and also the exercises at the end of the chapters that were so great in the original, well kennedy writes them in such small fonts you`ll need a magnifying glass to read them. All these additional stories kennedy adds in this book are TOTALLY unnessesary with the original ones being so much better. I found myself constantly skimming through all of kennedy`s stories to get to the real meat. His material is weaved into the book and written as though maltz were writing it from 40 years ago. This is a prime example of someone trying to capitalise on a great classic by rewriting it with their own inferior added material and at the same time using it to recommend other books by authors he likes. Trust me buy the original which i rate a 5 star and avoid this garbled mess! SHAME ON KENNEDY!!
