Editorial Reviews


More Alive With Color: Personal Colors-Personal Style By Leatrice Eiseman is the second book by the world-renowned color authority who helps people and businesses feel alive by choosing the right colors for their look and mood and for the image they want to create. In this book Ms. Eiseman has made it very simple and fascinating for every person, no matter what his or her skin color or nationality, to create their own very best looks. Instead of choosing colors by season, as was the classification in the Color Me Beautiful scheme years ago, the Colortime Pallettes are named by time of day: Sunrise, Sunlight, and Sunset. There are charts of these color pallettes and directions as to how to ascertain which is most beautiful for you. A chapter deals with color to fit your changing moods and various needs throughtout a day or a lifetime. By using your Colortime Pallette to create your wardrobe, it becomes easy to decide what to wear for each occasion and how to pack easily for business or pleasure because everything coordinates, saving you time and money. This book is a MUST for everyone who feels frumpy or who wants to make a good business impression, or who just wants to feel great about looking in the mirror

White hot for summer, white is not only the coolest color, it's white hot.
WHITE. It's pure, it's clean, it's fresh, it's uncomplicated. White is definitely a standout compared with other colors. "There is kind of an aura that white has today," said Leatrice Eiseman, consultant to Pantone, director of the Pantone Color Institute and author of "More Alive With Color" (Capital Books, $30) and other books.

“Use color to create comfort, space … Question: What color should my office be if I want to boost productivity? Answer: According to The Color Answer Book by Leatrice Eiseman (Capital Books, $30), there is no one answer to that question. Ms. Eiseman is the founder and director of the Pantone Color Institute and is a color consultant to many industries. She says that if you are evaluating color for your own office, your goal should be to seek out and use colors that raise your comfort level, ones that appeal to you. There is no "formula color that works every time in every situation."

Format: Hardcover
This latest entry in the color for people books written over the years is without a doubt the easiest and most sensible to date. The author divides colors into sunrise, sunset and sunlight groups with an additional group of neutral colors including black, gray, navy, true red, sunny yellow, khaki and several more that go with all three color families. The advantage of this method is that there are both warm and cool shades in all three of her divisions - instead of a regimented cool only for certain complexions and warm only for other complexions as was the case with the seasons method of color management. She is also much more supportive of using colors that are "outside" your color family and explains how to make a color choice from outside your color family work with your complexion and correct color family.

In the book she extensively covers everything from clothes to accessories to makeup to hair color choices for women and as well - includes a very helpful section for men in which she makes recommendations that are realistic for the average non-metrosexual guy as well as being useful for a very fashion concious and elegant gentleman.

Included in the book are tear-out pages for each color group and for the neutral family making it extremely easy to choose flattering colors that coordinate with your complexion and existing wardrobe.

The best thing about this book is it not only beautifully takes into consideration coloring to choose correct colors - it also takes into consideration personality - and allows one to choose colors that both look beautiful on and make you feel wonderful! No more choosing colors you don't like because they are the correct warm or cool shade!

Have you ever noticed that wearing a particular outfit makes you feel extra confident? Or that when you wear a blouse of a certain color you receive more complements because you look especially attractive in it? Would you like to look in the mirror everyday and see a reflection that says "I look and feel great"? More Alive With Color by Leatrice Eiseman reveals how to discover your personal colors and build your wardrobe around them so that you look and feel sensational whether kicking back at home or kicking up your heels out on the town.

The Colortime system organizes colors by how they appear during different times of the day: at sunrise, at sunset or in the sunlight at midday. Rather than dictate a particular set of hues as some other books do, Leatrice offers you a system to identify your best colors allowing you to build a versatile wardrobe that reflects you taste and personal style.

Leatrice incorporates crossover colors that work across all palettes and shares tips on how you can wear a favorite color even if it doesn't fall within your personal palette. The book includes removable pages for each color palette and the crossover color so that you can see how the colors work together and makes it easy to choose new colors to add to your current wardrobe. Best of all Leatrice shares a wealth of information on putting color together and includes her guide for goof-proof combinations.

Once you have an understanding of your personal colors Leatrice gives you the secrets to putting together a perfect look for any occasion. She also offers sound solutions for building a wardrobe and packing for a trip. One chapter offers practical advice especially for men that any man will be able to use regardless of his level of fashion sophistication.

Format: Hardcover
This was the best book since the now badly outdated Color Me Beautiful (they really need to update that thing; it too was great in its day).

Ms. Eiseman provides three different palettes: Sunrise, a collection of clear, bright colors which occur naturally at dawn; Sunlight, the more muted colors of midday, and Sunset, which includes the vibrant oranges and reds seen at the end of the day.

These palettes are perforated, for easy removal when shopping. The quiz in the book makes it fairly easy to determine which palette is yours, but she has advice if you are stuck between two palettes.

Really enjoying this book, and highly recommend it.

I purchased this book because I "love" color. I devoured the old Color Me Beautiful books years ago and hoped this would be an updated look at colors.

I was disappointed in every way. There is no "meat" to this book at all. The criteria for choosing your colors are pedestrian at best. The first three questions are: Which colors do you like best - stated in three different ways. There are no examples of people in your color family and by their criteria I could easily fit into two of the groups and with very little stretch...the third.

It's a very short book and the ideas are never fully supported. It could have been expanded and made much better. Save your money on this one. I'm keeping it...so I guess that says something, but there's better stuff available.

The only plus is they reference Pantone colors for each of the swatches so that you can get an actual, correct color (IF you own a color fan, which I do <grin> BUT unless you are in a job that utilizes it, the average person would not have access to nor choose to purchase this pricey piece of goods.)

If you are buying this to help you with a new wardrobe, save your money and go for the old CMB.
