I'd lost my pantone colour chart and needed a quick print-colour reference guide to choose some colours for an ad. I came across this totally useful little book by chance and it has since become indispensible. Colours are grouped in "themes" with swatches of flat colour and illustration examples so you can quickly see how they look in combination. Palettes are also laid against black and white backgrounds - very useful. All swatch colours are listed with their CMYK and RGB components. It would probably be a mistake to use this as a bullet-proof reference, but for magazine publishing, I reckon the colour information is accurate enough. A great resource for colour inspiration when starting a design and small enough to carry in your pocket. Great!
