Read in April, 2012 — I own a copy

I don't typically read self help type books, but this one sparked my curiosity. Fashion isn't a big deal to me (I was lost several times when clothing was described - I had to Google French cuffs). But I do know that it can play a part in your image, both to yourself and others. It was the psychology element that drew me to the book. See full review at
