    "It's easy to forget that Amazon even has competitors these days, but Barnes & Noble is still my go-to. I read a lot of novels, and love having bookshelves filled with books. B&N seems to send me coupons all the time, and if you're lucky enough to still have a physical B&N in your area, you can buy online and often go pick up the book to skip the wait on shipping. Great selection as well."

      "Itten is the bible of color theory to many. When I can understand/follow what he's saying, it is amazing and a great learning tool. It can be a tad hard to follow in places. Translation: much of it has taken me re-reading sentences or paragraphs a number of times, and then still not understanding all of it. So far it is worth the effort, and has already changed the way I look at color in my own work."

      "Projects offered by Itten are excellent. If you're looking for color theory from one of the masters, look no further than this book. While some of the theories offered might fall under what we now consider quackery, don't let it deter you from the rest of this book."

      "I think this was the most vividly clear answer so far. This book establishes exactly the solution the author of the topic was looking for, and makes it out to be a story line that captures the reader as well. This book takes all of the senses we have as humans and gives them a colorful definition that supports those senses."

      "I learned so much about an everyday experience--seeing color. The explanations of complex scientific ideas are presented clearly. The graphics are stunning. I didn't think I'd care so much about color, but I now look at the world slightly differently than I did before."
