From Publishers Weekly
Hopkins, known as The Makeover Guy, explains fashion dos, don'ts and oh-no-she-didn'ts for women in the second act of their lives. A quiz helps the reader identify which of six Image Profiles suits her tastes (Casual, Romantic, Innovative, etc.); clothes, hair and makeup tips follow accordingly. Hopkins is encouraging and helpful: he does not simply tell women to clean their closets of any unsuitable clothes. He provides a checklist of what you'll need, a 10-step to-do list and a questionnaire to determine which clothes to keep and which to toss. Benefiting from this book requires a certain amount of dedication—this is no quick-fix beauty mag article. There is even a revival guide journal in the back where readers can mark down outfits that worked or didn't work, collect contact information on their personal beauty team and keep track of daily, weekly and monthly beauty tasks. Hopkins's constant self-marketing can get annoying: irrelevant photos of himself litter the pages, and he wastes space touting his fashion victories over difficult clients. But his appearances on Oprah, the book's attention to detail and some astounding before-and-after photos attest to Hopkins's expertise. (May)

CONS: As mentioned by other reviewers, his only taste in clothing seemed to veer toward the classics. Obviously these women never went to the laundry mat or a grocery store as I never got an idea of what to wear to these places and still look chic.Don't get me wrong, his makeovers were fabulous except for the one of the black woman, the pants he had her in made her look like an elephant from the waist down, and her legs were initially slim. I also did not like that he went on and on about how a woman, the older women should not wear long hair, how she is grasping at staying younger when she does. Also continuing to mention figure flaws like it was the end of the world.
Okay, okay, I have to give it to him as he said in the beginning of the book...."I am aware that we all have our own truths, so some of what I have to offer in this book might not feel to you. As you read use your own wisdom and discernment to find out what's right for you.:
All in all, a beautifully written and presented book. I wish he had presented make up pictures for the other fashion trends, that is biggest flaw of this book!
