Look across each spread: it's as if the knots are magically tying themselves as the pictures present each stage of the rope bending, circling, entwining, and tightening. Even complex knots are easy to learn. Each knot includes information on when to use it (for climbing, sailing, general purpose), and there's a comprehensive introduction to all the terminology and techniques, plus dozens of helpful tips from a world-renowned expert. From the Alpine butterfly loop to the Zeppelin bend, the FlowMotion™ photography means that you'll never miss a trick, turn, or twist.
