I've got Midori's book and although beutifully illustrated it was rather too complicated to follow for a beginner like me. This on the other hand doesn't have pretty colour photo's (hence not being 5 stars) but does have clear instructions starting from the most basic ideas and working up to eleborate designs; my wife loves the idea of the rope corsets although we do need about 60 feet of rope. Pictures are in B&W and the printing quality is pretty low, think laser printed photos, but there are lots of them!

Very dissapointing!

The author appears to make it a treatise on her ideas of bondage & S&M. The techniques and photographs in my opinion tend to focus on the female gay market which is fine but nonetheless could have been done far more tastefully. Shibari techniques shown are limited with minimal discussion on tying knots; unfortunately better information is available for free on the internet.

I'd tied people a few times before I bought this and done some Shibari. This book explains about the safety side, the difference between various ropes and cords, the explanations of ties are clear and well explained.
Although I'd wanted a slightly more advanced book, this book still gave me a lot of new things to try and having seen my copy quite a few of my rope mates have bought copies.

Was a little dull, and not actually that easy to follow in some bits (though only a handful). Nothing particularly creative or exciting in it - I can do better without the book & just online research for free, and I'm an absolute beginnner. Otherwise nothing wrong with the book per se.

I bought this book for my husband. It is well written and the photos are nicly detailed. It is possible to easily recreate the lashings and knots used. Great advice throughout the book for everyones comfort and enjoyment.

Not the most fantastic instructional book compared to some of my other books but definantely worth a shelf space for completeness. Also not really a beginners book.

Really great book for bondage beginners.
The Dragon Sleeve in particular makes a spectacular photo.
All in all a good buy!
Along with the silk rope!

Expected it to be in colour with clearer photos, not just black & white.
