Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am designing a website and wanted a solid grounding in color theory, having found that books in the computer genre do not cover this topic well.

This book hit the mark, it provided me with 1) a basic grounding in color theory and the color wheel, 2) a no-nonsense, practical and thorough overview on the psychology of color, 3) a large range of categorized sample color combinations.

This book only provides the CMYK formula for its color swatches, and not the RGB formula. The book's theoretical sections also do not go into sufficient detail to explain the differences between the two formulations. This is not too-big-a problem as there are color formula conversion sites available on the web. This is the only reason why I have deducted one star. Perhaps a little unfair as computer nerds are not the book's target audience. I would give 4.5 stars in an ideal world.

I highly recommend this book if you are after a solid, practical and not too academic approach to color theory

I have enjoyed the book. Although I thought it would be more useful in terms of designing graphics arts, not my house. This book provides insight to color theory based on emotions and feelings when walking into a room; therefore, I would suggest this book for those looking to do some interior decorating and designing; not necessarily for graphic arts.

If you are not a designer, and have little background in color theory then I would highly recommend this book.

I needed to design a book cover and was getting my CMYK's confused with my Pantone's and RGB's.

It is an easy read with many full color examples, plus the CMYK values.

You can use the color patterns as a template for your own projects (work smarter not harder).

A worthwhile addition to my marketing collection.

Cheers!

Format: Paperback
I buy this book because the title is "The COMPLETE Color Harmony". There are so many other books about color on the shelf, but the word 'COMPLETE' really hit me. Altough i'm working in the design field but i found myself need more resources to this main subject, color harmony.

This book is great, it gives me new ideas of color harmony. I often use it for my projects. What i liked about this book is that they put 'Moods & Color' section in it. Powerful, rich, romantic, vital, earthy, friendly, soft, welcoming, etc....with other colours combinations too. 'The Psychology of color' also a great one too along with the 'Process color convertions chart'. This book is absolutely complete!
