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 the center of his heart. His principles are based on some of his psychological experiences as a plastic surgeon. He saw low self-esteem as similar to the facial flaws of his plastic surgery patients and describes 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 or her success level. He also has ideas on how not to let the hateful, hurtful things people say keep you from the success you deserve. His book heals and teaches that one has control over his or her life and destiny.
Dr. Maltz passed away some time ago, but his compassion for countless others lives on.

"Hard To Imagine A Better Abridgment"
Excellent short version of this famous book. My guess is that it probably dates back to the 1970s, and that Dr. Maltz himself oversaw its production. Being very familiar with the material, I can say this is probably the best abridgment we're likely to get, even notwithstanding the very good Audio Renaissance version (2 CDs). Good luck finding that one--it's been out of print for awhile and used copies are at a premium.
The narrator is very good, but I had to take off a star because the audio quality drops after about the first 10 or 15 min. Happily, its still listenable, but I had to crank up the volume to compensate. Couldn't BN Publishing have re-mastered this?
This is a must for your Psycho-Cybernetics library. It touches on every major point in just under an hour. Excellent companion piece to Master The Magic Power of Your Self-Image Psychology and Interview With Dr. Maxwell Maltz.
"Really Good Information!"
The information was Great the last 30 minutes was so bad I ended up with headache. I think somebody could have fixed the audio with all this remastering technology available. If the the audio was better I would have give this a 5 star all the way around.
"Fantastic, but tape needs to be cleaned up"
Fantastic material for anyone who is looking to improve themselves. But from chapter 6 on the recording suffers greatly on audio quality. I am surprised that they would sell this great book without cleaning the audio up. Shame on them.
"Life changing "
I've listened to this book about 10 times. It's giving me a process to follow, to change my self image for the better.
"A great refresher to an outstanding book"
I read the book a while back and was introduced into a new way of thinking. I use Audible solely to listen to the words of great people such as Maltz, Jung, Watts, Fury, and about to try Campbell next. This has helped me in my career and It is something that my boys will listen to with me on road trips.
This was a great taste of Dr. Maxwell and self imagery. It gave emough of information to start practice while leaving you want to hear more from the author.
