Yellow - the book is easy to read and relevant for general audience. But it is also a sales pitch for the personality assessment tool, which doesn't seem to have sufficient credibility in the psychometric assessment development circles.

I would suggest a layman to read the book as a self-introspective exercise and to understand what the best practices across the themes are.
