Carve-Up The Turkey, Not Your Relatives! Says Author Sheila Glazov

 Knowing Your Family Members’ and Friends’ Brain Colors Can Bring Harmony to the Holiday Table…and the New Year

 CHICAGO (December 8, 2011) — Sheila N. Glazov, award-winning author of the popular self-help book What Color Is Your Brain?®, offers insight and advice for family harmony during the hectic holidays in a fun and engaging way with brand-new paperback reprints of her two books.

“At some holiday dinners, the tension is so thick you hesitate to use knives to eat,” says Glazov. “Despite a lifetime of familiarity and love, we often don’t understand each other at all which causes conflict and stress. By understanding the Brain Colors concept, you can appreciate and enjoy your relative’s differences rather than grimly tolerate them.

Brain Colors provides an “Aha!” moment of insight that can make all the difference as to how we perceive that other person. When I give corporate presentations on Brain Colors to help with team building and stronger workplace environments, the first thing most of my participants do is apply it to their family situations. Work is important; family is where our hearts are.”

The short chapters of What Color Is Your Brain? are easy to read and chockfull of helpful and fun facts that make people’s complex personalities less confusing and simple to understand. The book focuses on the positive aspects of each personality type such that readers can best appreciate each for their strengths and then defuse the conflicts often arise among different Brain Colors. For example:

  • Yellow Brainers are responsible, punctual, and must organize a detailed shopping list, budget, and traditional holiday celebrations.
    • Blue Brainers are creative, compassionate, and stress out if no one offers to help them with the holiday shopping, decorating or cleaning up.
    • Green Brainers are logical, private, and often have a “Hum-bug” attitude at family gatherings because of the chaotic pace during holiday season.
      • Orange Brainers are, generous, fun loving and enjoy sharing their enthusiasm and child-like attitude about holiday celebrations with gift giving for everyone!


Her recently updated and re-released children’s book Princess Shayna’s Visible Invisible Gift is a response to parents’ desire to relate to their children what they had learned about Brain Colors. The book helps children understand and apply the Brain Color concepts through an engaging fairytale. It is meant to be read with a parent or teacher and discussed. Much like a book club guide, the “Gift Giver’s Guide” for each chapter helps parents and teachers initiate discussions with their children.

An internationally acclaimed personality and Brain Color expert who has appeared on many TV and radio shows as well as in print, Sheila’s lively personality and warm approach helps audiences grasp her concepts and immediately start applying them in their lives for better relationship harmony. She likes to give away copies of both books and loves to interact with her hosts and audiences about their particular situations.

Now in its ninth printing, What Color Is Your Brain?  includes a new Brain Color quiz at the front of the book. It is available in paperback on Amazon or at the author’s website: for $16.95.  Princess Shayna’s Visible Invisible Gift is an illustrated large-size paperback available on Amazon for $18.95 or on the author’s website.
