If you try to research colour management on 'The Internet' you can find a lot of information, but its rather fragmented and there is a fair degree of contradiction between sources, and some concepts that aren't explained well. This book is amazing in that from the basic physics of light and biology of vision it works through everything you need to know about colour management in a thorough but accessible and very readable form. Its a very practical reference for photographers with helpful information about getting better results from your input devices (scanners, cameras) and outputs (mainly printers).
I read a preview of the e-book before deciding to buy the print version and I was blown-away by it. Now I'm most of the way through the print book and its helped my consolidate my understanding and apply it to concrete photographic situations.

Likewise, you need to have a technical bent and not be intimidated by technical stuff. If you are happy with the prints you get from the corner drugstore, this book will intimidate you.
However, if you are like me and would like to make prints that look like what you see on your monitor, then this may be the book for you.
It goes deeply into color theory and producing high quality prints, both for exhibition and for print, so you will find theory and practical information on these subjects. It talks about the criteria for examining and image and making improvements and includes specific information for both Photoshop and Lightroom. It also includes information on producing and displaying high quality black and white prints. Even though color is very popular, high quality black and white will always have a place. Look at the popularity of Ansel Adams' and his prints, and he passed away in 1984 and he worked almost exclusively in black and white.
I look forward to learning more color theory and improving the quality of my prints.
