" ""Overall this book fills a gap in the literature of digital color. It presents the principles behind many of the concepts familiar to digital photographers, but which are never explained in detail in photography or digital imaging books aimed at the consumer."" -Bob Atkins, Photo.net, March 2005
""This is an excellent book that does what it sets out to do in a clear and concise fashion. It certainly belongs in any academic library as well as any specializing in information or graphic technology. Many people will find this to be an important source of practical information."" -Robert F. Skinder, E-Streams, September 2004
""Ms. Stone reminds us … about the marvels of color in our everyday lives. … Now that we have been briefed on how humans perceive color, describe it, and communicate it, it is time to discuss how to capture, manipulate, and dissemnate what we have perceived. … useful information in a compact form… "" -Alan Kravetz, Wiley InterScience, October 2006"
