I have a copy. Highly recommended. From the DV Expert Series by CMP Books, written in 2003 by Steve Hullfish and Jaime Fowler.

maybe not so much a book, but on the Se7en DVD they go thru an example of color correction. Very informative & since a picture is worth 1,000 words maybe the segment is worth a book :)

_Color Correction for Video_ (CCV) is the only video color corection book i know of, but I wouldn't say that it's great. I got a lot more out out of some Vegas Video on-line tutorials and Photoshop Color correction books. CCV spends too much time on the history of the industry, includes very few color correction examples and makes heavy use of at least four different categories of video industry slang. If you're a novice, this book doesn't help much. If you're a pro, it's a good collector's item. I think the primary motivation for this book was to be a demo hub for the various professional grade applications available for color correction. I wish the authors would put out a second edition with more examples and include a DVD with BEFORE & AFTER videos.

I've read:
Video Color Correction for Non-Linear Editors: A Step-by-Step Guide (Paperback)

skimmed through:
Color Correction for Avid Xpress DV 3.5
Basic info in that book only. Go to a bookstore that stocks it and skim through it.

Photoshop Color Correction by Michael Kieran is a neat book on Photoshop tricks, most of which are applicable to video.

Yes, I should have mentioned the Kieran book, as that book helped me more than CCV.
