sRGB vs Adobe RGB

I’m contemplating using Booksmart, but I am concerned about the recommended (sRGB) selection of colour space to work in. Everything I have read about colour management says the more colour information the better when printing.  sRGB contains the least amount of colour compared to Adobe RGB or other high end spaces. When the sRGB is converted to CMYK  will it take another colour hit?  My understanding is that sRGB is best used for internet and fast print jobs at Walmart or such. I’ve seen some sRGB images which look great on a calibrated monitor, but look down right trashy when printed (even with a good printer profile). Why all the conversions? Can someone direct me to an answer in the form or provide an explanation, please.

4him,

 if you look at the Ts & Cs for the forums you’ll see that their prime aim is to facilitate the exchange of ideas, requests for help, discussion of issues, etc between forum members, it is NOT  the prime route to get help or comments from Blurb staff. To get that you should use the Customer Support page you’ll find under the Help menu.

I was on holiday at the time of the original post so could not respond, if  you are still looking for help Glennogi let me know and I’ll do my best to help.

Good Day,

 Yes, I’m in need of this very important information before I commit to having a book printed in sRGB.
