My husband loves to tie knots--for fishing, for camping, while he is watching TV; you get the picture. So this book was a birthday present to him and he loved it! The knots are divided into chapters, which is wonderful. The pictures are clear and directions concise. But what he liked best about this book is that it lies flat. That is probably his favorite thing about the book. Lots of knots, website info, reference books--probably the best little guide book he has seen in a long time. And I am knot kidding!

This book is very useful for those that like to pass the time with inexpensive hobbies. I myself like to practice making knots that may serve useful when I attach something to the top of my truck.
