The Two Knotty Boys, JD and Dan, have both outdone themselves once again, this time with FULL colour photography throughout the rather full book.
The pictures are clear, and anywhere it gets confusing they've edited the photos to highlight the leading end of rope, and the descriptions of exactly what is happening in each picture gives a good idea of what you're doing (or having done to you, if you're lucky) and the humour that has been toned back still injects the right level of cheekiness at the right time.
I've read both of the books by the TKBs, Showing you the Ropes and also Back on the Ropes, and the only thing that detracts from the second book is that they've treat it as though it was their first book all over again, making sure the same techniques are in whilst still showing you something new. It made me, a self-confessed bibliophile, skip chapters despite their inherent worth.
I've yet to use any of the Two Knotty Boys' techniques, as I prefer the styles I've learnt with, but I'm fast approaching the day when I'll have the book open next to me to help out.
All in all, a great read and (as far as I would say) a DEFINITE must for any Toybag/box, if only for reference material or inspiration.
Four out of Five, only because there isn't a "Four and a Half" selection!
