Based on my memory of reading this a long time ago, I would describe this as a good, very early popularization of current valid techniques of cognitive therapy. It is also a good attempt at practical application of the ideas of cybernetics.Read a more recent book on the subject.

Although the writing style of this book dates back to a more formal time, the information is solid gold. I love the positive tone Maltz uses as he proves in many ways how healthy we and our lives can be using the simple processes of our minds. This is life-changing information.

This book changed my life in the late sixties. It's the difference in feeling like nobody to feeling like somebody. Happiness became my life style.

I do not usually give titles at 5 stars but this book really is a classic. Maltz was a very successful plastic surgeon who realized that after he healed peoples pysical scars, some patients inner scars still existed. These early experiences lead him to develope complex theories about the human brain and how the self image and the brain work together affecting whether we are successes or failures. A very intelligent man ahead of his time gives common wisdom wrapped in complex psychological methods that will help you see your way to you goals.

I read this book many years ago and found it's insights to be exceptional. It explains so many of the things we do and why we feel as we do about ourselves. I have given many copies to friends and now I need one.
