In-depth, thorough, technical, highly recommended

This book contains invaluable in-depth information about the principles and practice of colour management.
The initial chapters are worth reading on their own as an introduction to how colour works, how it is measured and encoded digitally, and the basics of colour management.
If you're making your own profiles with high-end tools from GretagMacbeth, Monaco etc then this is a must-have. If you're not working at this level it is still a valuable source of information to help you understand the issues involved.
For an introductory, less theoretical, book then Andrew Rodney's 'Color Management for Photographers' is probably easier to digest, but the two books should be considered as complementary. Start with Andrew's book & then progress to Bruce's if you need more info.
The theory and practice of colour management are both difficult subjects, and you need to arm yourself with sound advice if you are to make any progress. Both of these books are valuable tools to help you to make progress.
