Finally from the world of psychological psychobabble comes a BOOK OF SUBSTANCE! This is not a fad, and its concepts offer us a solid surface upon which we can begin to understand ourselves and the others with whom we interact. What a TIMELESS GIFT OF INSIGHT. If you only read one book this year, do yourself and the rest of us a favor -- READ THIS BOOK! You will never see yourself or others the same again.

I will never understand how Oprah Winfrey missed this one. If anything can improve the quality of our lives at every level, THIS IS IT!

The CLARITY and VISION of The Color Code is PHENOMENAL. The book sits on my nightstand right next to my Bible.

Some people might think this is just lightweight fun. Don't kid yourself. The Color Code is a lot like Disneyland. It reads with such an unassuming style and possesses such a uniquely inviting charm that one easily forgets its POWERFULLY CRAFTED, UNPARALLELED ACCURACY.

This POWERFUL PERSONALITY MODEL is heads and shoulders above every other personality profile out there. I've used them all from Myers-Briggs to Wilson Learning and there is NO COMPARISON. Once you have used this model, you will never use the others again.
A psychologist uses the primary colors to represent four different personality types and presents a simple, fun, and sophisticated personality questionnaire.
