This new version has been completely buit for the format, and is not affected by the shortcomings of the previous conversion software. The book is also in full color with large pictures for viewing on all color formats of the Kindle Software.

Updates :

Full color images which make instructions clearer and easier to follow.
Large image size allows for greater detail.
Easier to read, left-aligned text.
True to paperback formatting and font style where possible.
Working table of contents.

Developed during World War II, paracord is one of the most famous types of cordage used by the military even today. It is strong, light, and can be used for thousands of different tasks, from the practical to the fashionable. Heavy on pictures, Adventures in Paracord will guide you through the basics of paracord weaving and its uses every step of the way. Learn to make survival bracelets that contain up to 20 feet of paracord for emergencies, stylish bracelets for both men and women, rugged and durable watch bands, keychains, lanyards, handle wraps, and even more!

Product Description

About the Author

Nicholas Tomihama was born in Honolulu, where he lived until graduating high school. From there he went to Hilo on the island of Hawaii (the Big Island) to study business management at the University of Hawaii at Hilo. Even before going to college, he had a knack for making things and working with his hands, perhaps coming from his father who was a jeweler and general jack-of-all-trades. In highschool, Nicholas made hand-turned wooden pens, collected coins, fossils, and toyed around with his father’s hunting bow. In Hilo, Nicholas was exposed to the party life and turned away from it, instead passing his time exploring the island and getting to his Hawaiian heritage. He began researching and studying native hawaiian crafts, carving bone hooks, crafting woven slings, and other hawaiian arts. After becoming more interested with craft than education, Nicholas returned to Oahu without a degree and married his highschool sweetheart, who had kept up with him in a long-distance relationship for the duration of his stay in Hilo. Nicholas now lives on Oahu with his wife and young son, Levi. He is an artist who makes hand-crafted bows and arrows and enjoys the sport of archery. He is also an avid reader and prolific writer, who recently published his first book, The Backyard Bowyer, which teaches how to build simple wooden bows for the complete novice.

Adventures in Paracord: Survival Bracelets, Watches, Keychains, and More. Unfortunately this book doesn't work well on the Kindle, but if you have the Kindle app on your computer or phone the problem is solved.

A book with the potential to be so much better, if only the contents employed colour photography.

The book uses the step-by-step principle so well used by other authors in this field which could make this a very easy book to follow. Unfortunately, the lack of colour and sometimes indifferent photography reduces its usability and will probably cause some potential buyers to seek out alternatives.
