From Library Journal:

An "image consultant" to Texas State Treasurer Ann Richards, among others, Brown focuses mostly on the appearance a person makes. She gives extensive advice on clothes (including colors to wear), makeup, voice, and how to stand and use gestures. She also suggests skillful ways for people to communicate their message. Several chapters are devoted to handling the media and appearing on TV. Brown gives hints on how to "lighten up" facial expression and other ways to look good on TV. Libraries that have purchased Arch Lustberg's Winning When It Really Counts ( LJ 9/1/88) or Reid Buckley's Speaking in Public ( LJ 9/1/88) may want Brown's book as well for its different slant on a polished public presence.

From Publishers Weekly:

Brown is well qualified to advise readers how to optimize their image when making a professional appearance: among other positions, she has been chief makeup artist for CBS-TV, has made up all five presidents from Kennedy to Carter and has served as vocal coach for the Voice of America. She offers eminently practical advice on clothing (never wear black, white or red on TV), makeup (do not attempt to highlight cheekbones with rouge), voice (there are exercises to alter pitch and increase resonance), public speaking (know your audience and adapt your talk to its expectations), handling the media (anticipate tough or unfair questions you might be asked). In every situation, be yourself, Brown urges in the summary of this notably helpful guide.
