"There has been, it seems, a library of books published in the past several years aimed entirely at encouraging us to improve ourselves and to change. The message has been that if we do not change we will not be able to meet the demands of an ever-changing world. How refreshing now to read BrainStyles by Marlane Miller, who, instead of encouraging us to change, gives us the tools and guidance to discover and affirm who we really are--how we think and how we respond. From there, Ms. Miller teaches us how to recognize and affirm the people we love and work with, leading them to a better, more sensitive, and more effective way of being.
I recommend this book as a tool for both life and work."

"First of all, I think that the BrainStyles test and literature is not only applicable in business situations, but I also find it very useful in my personal life as well. After reading this book, I bought another and gave it to my fiancée to improve the odds of our marriage being successful."
"I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who has a genuine interest in improving the performance of those around them and their teams. In my work setting, I will endeavor to apply these principles. I will first have to focus on myself, but I think that finding others' strengths and bartering with them to cover my 'non-strengths' will be beneficial to our whole team."

"BrainStyles... is an exciting book that provides new insights into the way people's brains are structured to make decisions."
book review: "Holistic Management in Practice"
"When I was reading the description of my BrainStyle I had to do all I could not to burst into tears! Because, like the person described in your book, I felt that FINALLY someone knew what was going on in my 'weird' mind... I wasn't weird: I was OK, I AM OK!!! You have no idea what a relief it was to find at 35 that this is the case. At 35 I feel like my life is just beginning!!... I now feel like I don't constantly have to apologize sic for who I am. to others and myself... I feel vindicated, liberated."
