For the first time, a book has been written for the general reader that explains the nature and consequences of colour blindness. Colour blindness affects about one in twelve men. While only one woman in two hundred is colour blind, as many as one in six carry the gene that causes their sons to have defective colour vision.

The first part of the book describes the several different types of colour vision deficiency and how they are transmitted from generation to generation. The second part uses computer generated colour illustrations to recreate the world as seen by the colour-blind. Difficulties experienced in everyday life are discussed, plus problems that may be encountered at work or at school. Advice is given on the use of colour filters that can assist the colour-blind in distinguishing colours.

The book will be of great interest to the colour-blind, their parents and spouses. It will be found of value by professionals where an understanding of colour blindness is necessary for their work, such as teachers, careers advisers and graphic designers.
