Reviews of Maxwell Maltz’'s original Psycho-Cybernetics:
“Psycho-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 ‘"must-read’" list.”
--Michael C. Gray, Profit Advisors
“Published in 1960, Psycho-Cybernetics remains one the classics of self-help, self-improvement, and personal development.”
--Mind of Success
“An invaluable aid to the layman, offering a sound, scientific method of practical self-improvement.”
--Mark Freeman, Ph.D., clinical psychologist
“This 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.”
“Maxwell 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.”
--Bert Decker, You’ve Got to Be Believed to Be Heard
“Psycho-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 The science and computing references are now outdated, but the principles of cybernetics have only grown in influence.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 ‘“ghost in the machine,’” guides matter. This makes Psycho-Cybernetics the perfect self-help book for a technical culture.”
--Tom Butler-Bowdon, 50 Self-Help Classics
“Psycho-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.”
About the Author
Dr. Maxwell Maltz received his doctorate in medicine from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University in 1923. After postgraduate work in plastic surgery in Europe, Maltz was appointed to head several departments of reparative surgery in New York hospitals over his long and distinguished career. He was a prominent international lecturer and on the psychological aspects of plastic surgery. He published two books on the subject, New Faces, New Futures and Dr. Pygmalion.
In the 1950s, Maltz became increasingly fascinated by the number of patients who came to him requesting surgery, who had greatly exaggerated “mental pictures” of their physical deformities, and whose unhappiness and insecurities remained unchanged even after he gave them the new faces they desired. In 1960, after nearly a decade of counseling hundreds of such patients, extensive research, and testing his evolving theory of “success conditioning” on athletes, salespeople, and others, he published his findings—then radical ideas—in the first edition of Psycho-Cybernetics, which went on to sell millions of copies and to be translated in dozens of languages.
Matt Furey, president of the Psycho-Cybernetics Foundation, a national and world title-holder in wrestling and martial arts, a bestselling fitness author as well as successful internet entrepreneur, has committed himself to preserving and extending the legacy of Maltz’s work. Furey headlines sold-out seminars and coaches hundreds of men and women in his highly successful MasterMind/Joint Venture Connection, as well as the Psycho-Cybernetics Coaching Program.

A super fantastic cop show taking place in the alleys, parking garages, streets, and fine places of beautiful Boston. But the crime is as ugly as the city is beautiful. And speaking of beauty, the 2 protagonists are hot. Angie Harmon plays Det. Jane Rozzoli the tough, sexy, sometimes sweet, sometimes funny murder investigator who takes on some bad boys and gets herself into dire straights. She has the scars to prove it, but the figure of a goddess. Her partner in crime, solving that is, comes in Medical Examiner Dr. Maura Isles, played by the equally gorgeous Sasha Alexander. She's loaded with nerdy trivia, which annoys Rozzoli, but gets the job done. She has nerves of iron and also injects many comic moments. It's a fine balancing act of suspense and comedy in a mystery crime show that works great.
Other cast members come into their own in different episodes. It is a series that has created a fine cast that quickly feels like family. Everyone has a history with a bit of a dark side as well as some fine personal moments. Lorraine Bracco is Ma Rozzoli, a generation older but yet a looker and doer. Her son Frankie Jr. (Jordan Bridges) is a Boston foot cop. Two other members of the murder squad are Det. Frost (Lee Thompson Young) who hates gore and Det. Korsak (Bruce McGill) older and wiser. They all appear each episode and play an important role.

YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!
It's already been renewed for a 5th season.
In 1961, It did much more than just put me on my quest for self-improvement. For the very first time, someone connected the mind to the body and brought home the old, simple adage ... "Change your Mind and you change your life!"
That was Psycho-Cybernetics. That was the principle of Self Image Psychology ... proven and verified by science itself as an irresistible and powerful no nonsense psychology of happiness and fulfillment.
From there on ... for decades ... everything else that was printed in the Self Help Industry became supporting commentary for the principles in this book.
An now ... the new "enhanced" version of Psycho-Cybernetics just arrived. And Yesssss!!! I enjoyed this one as much as the original. If not more so!
Comparing the two, the new authors kept the voice and the insights of the original text intact, integrating only the updates needed for new generations to come to experience and cherish the joy of reading this old, new classic for the first time. And experience it, you will. You cannot do otherwise.
Indeed, it gives me great pleasure to recommend this new version of the book that's been around for over a half century. If you are not among the 35 million+ people who read the older one ... please, do yourself a favor ... get a copy now and read it!
You will find that Psycho-Cybernetics will do it to you, as it did it to us, decades ago. True to its kind, the new Enhanced version of Psycho-Cybernetics is still the only book that scientifically proves the principle of Self Image Psychology and makes it the new foundation for a new century's hope, success and the dream of a better life.
And the beat goes on!
Although this will seem outdated to many with its all-male jury, smoking allowed, no air-conditioning and no fancy meals, the story line transcends all that. It's a story of reasonable doubt, deductive reasoning/thinking and discovering that things aren't always as they seem.
The 12 men don't start out angry. One juror is not convinced of the guilt of the accused. In the process of discussing the details of the crime, tempers flare.
The photography is wonderful--the use of shadows & light and camera angles is a joy to behold. The interaction between the very diverse men is engaging, and although some of the scenes seem a little stilted (remember this was made in 1957), overall the acting is stellar.
I think this is a great movie to watch with young people to help them learn about tolerance, analyzing information, patience, critical thinking, humility and redemption. There is no sex, violence (other than a slight scuffle between two jurors), gore or swearing.
