“Baron Paul Greycastle has made one of the Greatest Discoveries of All Time. He shows, with a tremendous amount of lists, facts and figures, that the most famous and successful people in practically every career field: Archeologists, Artists, Athletes, Comedians, Composers, Designers, Doctors, Educators, Environmentalists, Health Gurus, Inventors, Journalists, Lawyers, Models, Musicians, Peace Makers, Photographers, Physicists, Positive-Thinking Philosophers, Promoters, Richest, Romantics, Sales People, Singers, Talk Show Hosts, Writers and many more, are successful because of their colour-coded names. He proves, with undeniable evidence, that Sir Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein owe their great knowledge of physics to their names.

He shows that our colour-coded names determine who our romantic soul mate should be, what colours we should use in our homes and wardrobe to stimulate and create the 7 different home decor mood environments and project the fashion image styles (youthful, intellectual, harmonious, dramatic, corporate, romantic & sexy).

This is one of the greatest self-help books ever written. Find out what your name says about how to enhance your beauty, choose the right career, find the right romantic soul mate, build the best colour/style wardrobe, and stimulate your 7 centres using your colours in your home or business environment. Greycastle claims that if his philosophy is accepted by the mainstream medical society, it could possibly create two new medical fields: Endocrinology Psychology and Endocrinology Psychiatry. ”
