Book Overview

Cybernetics (loosely translated from the Greek): "a helmsman who steers his ship to port." Psycho-Cybernetics is a term coined by Dr. Maxwell Maltz, which means, "steering your mind to a productive, useful goal so you can reach the greatest 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...

Why publishers should keep publishing

I was a junior in high school. It was 1976 and my psychology teacher, Mr. Potashnik, required us to read "Psychocybernetics" by Maxwell Maltz. I let a lot of homework slip by as a junior, but this book I read. "Psychocybernetics" and my psychology teacher, inspired me. I suddenly felt empowered to do something with my life, besides graduating from high school and becoming someone's wife. I was 5 feet 4 inches and I weighed 102 lbs. I thought about becoming an airline stewardess because I wanted to travel the world, but instead I became a United States Marine. I never did serve in a war zone, but I am very proud of my 21 years of service as a Marine. More recently, my husband, also a former Marine, and I celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary. We have two beautiful children; a son who is a freshman in college and a daughter who is a senior in high school. I have a Master's degree from the Catholic University of America in Library Science and Informations Systems, and love life. "Psychocybernetics" started me believing in myself, and I have never looked back.

A Revelation for Underperformers & Procastinators

I have not read the original book by Maxwell Maltz yet, but after reading this book I will.I was a newcomer to the conceptual ideas contained in this book. In the UK no-one seemed to know Maltz or his theory.The ideas and the way this book was written are conducive to a clear understanding and application of Maltz's theory. As a newcomer I can recomend this book on it's own merits. It is clearly written, the theory is clearly laid out and in simple terms.The theory itself is breathtakingly simple, but the repercussions on areas such as goal setting and goal attainment are INCREDIBLE. I had always grown up to understand that it is Willpower that will conquer all, and goal success can only be attained by using willpower. Everytime I tried to use willpower I seemed to fail. This theory explains why failure will occur, and what to do about it, and how to set goals and achieve them.If you are a failed goal setter, who habitually prefers procrastination than action, this book and application of the theory, will change your life.Application of the theory contained in the book will have a profound affect on your life.Highly Recomended
