Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Color vision confusion CVC, or color blindness, is thought to affect about 10 percent of the world's population both male and female. It can be a genetic disorder or a side effect of various pollutants, diseases, and medications. Whatever the cause, CVC undermines the visual communication and information networks for those afflicted and affects both the individual and all who come into contact with him or her. Rosenthal, a member of the Optical Society of America and a CVC advocate, and psychologist Phillips raise public awareness about CVC by providing encyclopedic information on this serious visual handicap and by giving numerous personal case studies of the issues faced by the CVC-impaired. Their book is intended for both the general reader and the specialist and is recommended for all health collections.James Swanton, Harlem Hospital Lib., New York

    It seemed more like a consciousness-raising book for the non-col

    It seemed more like a consciousness-raising book for the non-colorblind than any real help for those who are colorblind. Manages to cover a wide range of topics without giving any real information on any of them. For example, a chapter lists different tests for colorblindness, but doesn't say how you can obtain them, nor rate their pluses and minuses. Another chapter lists the kinds of colorblindness, but gives no clues how to determine which kind applies to an individual. There's no mention of the many on-line resources for colorblind people.

    My biggest gripe is that the book keeps saying protanopes "can't see red." Of course we see red. It's just that red doesn't look very different from many other colors. We can see it just fine. We just don't call it what the rest of the world calls it.
