Cybernetics (loosely translated from the Greek): a helmsman who steers his ship to port. Psycho-Cybernetics is aterm coined by Dr. Maxwell Maltz, which means, steering your mind to a productive, useful goal so you can reach thegreatest port in the world, peace of mind. Since its first publication in 1960, Maltz s landmark bestseller 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 evenmore relevant for the contemporary reader. 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 andredirect 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 fail to achieve) any goal. And he developed techniques for improving and managing self-image visualization, mental rehearsal, relaxation which have informed and inspired countless motivational gurus, sports psychologists, and self-help practitioners for more than fifty 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."
This book is worth everyone's time! You can get yourself out of the doldrums by doing the visualization exercises, and that is life enhancing.

Self help book
I owned this book several years ago but did not understand what the writer was talking about. Since then I have been trying to improve myself and release a lot of guilt and anger. Now I have acquired this book again and I sat down for a good read on how to help myself achieve a different out look on life and my helpful role in it.

The standard for self-image psychology
I read this book when I was young and have recommended it, re-read it and have several versions of audio books and courses on it. It has always been one of the best, if not the best book on self-image psychology. His experience in changing people's physical appearance and noting the lack of change in the patient's self-image gave him a unique insight into the subject. I haven't read a book of this same subject matter that didn't take from this one. Highly recommended even if you have a great self-image to help you understand those that don't (and possible discovering a little more about yourself, as no one is perfect).

Mr Maltz has extracted and defined all the life principles out of the our Lords Word and prsents them in an easy to follow reading. Highly recommend this book in one hand and your Bible in the other. God Bless all who seek Jesus..
