Maxwell Maltz was an American cosmetic surgeon and author of
Psycho-Cybernetics, which was a system of ideas that he claimed could
improve one's self-image. In turn, the person would lead a more
successful and fulfilling life. He wrote several books, among which
Psycho-Cybernetics was a long-time bestseller - influencing many
subsequent self-help teachers. His orientation towards a system of ideas
that would provide self-help is considered the forerunner of the now
popular self-help books. The word cybernetic comes from the Greek for
'steersman', and in the modern sense usually refers to systems of
control and communication in machines and animals: how, for instance, a
computer or a mouse organises itself to achieve a task. Maltz applied
the science to man to form psycho-cybernetics. However, while inspired
by the development of sophisticated machines, his book denounced the
idea that man can be reduced to a machine. Psycho-cybernetics bridges
the gap between our mechanistic models of the brain's functioning
(cliches like 'Your brain is a wonderful computer'), and the knowledge
of ourselves as being a lot more than machine. Maltz's genius was in
saying that while we were 'machines', and while the dynamics of
goal-setting and self-image might best be described in mechanistic
terms, the fantastic variety of our desires and our ability to create
new worlds were uniquely human. What could never be reduced to machine
analogies were the fires of imagination, ambition and will. In this book
"Psycho-Cybernetics and Self-Fulfillment", Dr. Maxwell Maltz teach
about: Goals, Self Image, Happiness, and more...

This is one of the three most important books I've ever read. I read it decades ago and it changed my life profoundly and forever.

I read this book many years ago and decided to pick it up and read it again. It is interesting the insight that Maxwell Maltz had when the book was written more than 50 years ago. Today we have more information on how the brain works, yet he knew from working with people some truths that still seem to apply today. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants more insight into themselves.

I liked this book so much that I can't help but post a review. The book offers a lot of insights in the human mind and how we learn. It is sad that I just picked it out now when it was written years ago. The test of it's importance is it's enduring relevance.

I liked the content and it wasn't as whacky as I had anticipated given the name [which is a good thing]. The wording and rhythm place this book in the mid-1900s so it reminds of listening to my grandparents talk when they get in lecture/speech mode.

This was one of the first self help books that I ever read, it made a powerful impression on me. It was my starter for a lifetime of searching for ways to improve my own performances. Above the entrance to the Oracle of Delphi there is an inscription that reads, "Know thyself." That has been my life's work and this book was largely responsible for setting me off on the journey. It made me realise that I needed a powerful self image if I was to become what I could become.

The author remained fairly vague throughout most of the book and kept repeating himself. It was difficult to find practical pieces of advice.

This was a life-changing book read in 1972. Dr Maxwell Maltz was way ahead of his time. Today, championship athletes and others practice what was once considered only "pop" psychology at best.
