You probably don't care anymore but yes it is. I got my copy from B&N and i wanted to see how other people responded to it. But so far I like it :)

hey, exactly the question came across my mind too reading all those comments! can u pls tell me which edition ur talking about there?
in specific, i'd like to know if it's colored pictures for the pocket edition. thanks!
ps. B&N has the paper edition whereas amazon has the pocket edition. debating which one to get now. any comment will be greatly appreciated.
less than $5 difference in the two editions: pocket edition is easier to carry around or to a trip but i read that the paperback edition is full-size and seem to have better paper/print quality.

UPDATE:
ok, a bit googling and here's what i found:

pocket edition: 335 colour illustrations, 56 black and white illustrations
paperback: 376 colour illustrations, 64 black and white illustrations + 6 Foldouts

source: http://www.phaidon.com/store/art/the-story-of-art-9780714847030/

not sure why the difference. seems the paperback edition has more illustrations

UPDATE2:
Preface to the pocket edition

"The text itself remains identical to that of the sixteenth edition and all of the images illustrated there are included here. Only the very astute reader may notice that the small illustration 'sign-offs' that the author used previously at the end of each chapter, but did not refer to in his story, are missing from this edition as in this layout they would have served no purpose. "
