Lack of basic colour techniques,
This review is from: Colour Mixing Bible (Paperback)
This book is my all means a bible of colour, and it is perfectly laid out. However, it doesnt show you how to use the primary colours to make the mass about of different colours but instead how to use ready made colours together. This is highly annoying when all that is needed is the 3 primary colours. I would recommned this to anyone who uses a set of 12 ready made colours but not for someone who only uses the 3 primaries.

I understand what you're saying, but 3 primaries, B&W may be fine for learning colour theory & basic ideas of complementary, supplementary, analogous etc. combinations, but 'all that is needed is the 3 primary colours' is just incorrect & I sincerely hope you are not restricting your understanding by adhering to that belief.

My comment was directed at Aimee in response to her saying she limits herself to primaries which I thought'd be kinda obvious by my last point, for to her to take or leave.

Jimbo is right; there's no such thing as 3 primaries (pure colours) that will allow you to mix a full colour range, so his response, in my eyes, is absolutely relevant.

A Reader from Stockport says:
I'm no expert. But I would agree you do need more than three primaries to be able to mix a good variety of colours. Most books recommend warm blue, cool blue, warm yellow, cool yellow, warm red cool red. And a couple of ready made greens would be useful. So I don't subscribe to this all you need is three primaries to mix any colour you want.
