    Maybe the best book ever on how to learn using colors.

    I've bought it last year and I've thought after reading it I'll know the magic formula how to use colors. Well there is no magic formula.

    That book / learning colors is not a theory it's practice. It's not mathematics it's art.

    You'll have to learn feeling colors and how they interact together. After this book I completely stopped using color palette generators like Adobe Kuler and I'm using my instincts creating colors for a design.
