A knot book with a difference,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Why Knot? (Hardcover)
I first came across the book in a huge bookshop in Portland,USA whilst I was on holiday. It featured on the bookshelf but a quick read made me want to bbuy it- especially because of the bit " how to tie a bowline with one hand".
I didn't want to have to carry it and cart it home so I immediately searched for it when I got home and found it on Amazon at a good price- as cheap as in the USA.
It's more than a book of knots as it is written by a tightrope walker in an interesting he and amusing way with several references to the tightrope walking and the various knots needed. In fact he claims to use all the knots mentioned.
I am buying another as a present for my friends seventieth birthday. He is a sailor like me and will enjoy the book which comes with a little bit of rope.
