"I originally purchased this book to supplement lectures I was giving to my graduate OT students, hoping to find a straightforward way to explain building therapeutic rapport with our patients. However I quickly found myself applying these color concepts not only in my classroom, but in my own clinical practice as well. I was amazed at how intuitive the information feels, and how it really can help us to mediate what appear to be personality conflicts, but instead are just different colors of the rainbow in action. A must read for allied health students and professionals alike – next year it will be the required textbook for my course!"

"I first would like to say that I love your book. A huge portion of my job is resolving conflicts between students completing Fieldwork rotations and their supervisors. As you can imagine, personality often plays a huge role in these conflicts. I have found that your book can help me clearly differentiate where personality problems are arising and communicate effectively to resolve them. Since your book is mandatory reading in a course at our University, it also gives me a common language to utilize with students so that they can recognize possible sources of conflict.”
