Book will be use as a reference book since I don' tie knots all the time or that often.
I'm happy to have this book for when I need a specific knot for a specific reason.
Knots are explained in an easy to learn manner with illustrations.
Would recommend this book for anyone who needs to tie knots for any reason: Boating, farming, or just for fun.
This nice little book describes the types of cordage covered, knot nomenclature, the tools and care of ropes including whipping and coiling. The text, cordage, knots and illustrations are oriented to sailing, camping and scouting uses. This is not a knot book for technical mountaineering or construction, but a good introduction to the subject for kids and parents and activity leaders who are teaching valuable basic skills.
The illustrations are very clear photographs of each step of tying each knot with context provided by marine and camping gear and pleasant backgrounds. The special uses of each knot are clearly explained.
The quality hard cover book includes a bit of line, suitable for learning and practice.
I recommend this book for parents and activity leaders who are teaching valuable basic knot skills.
