Format: Paperback
I got this book for my Dad for his birthday and he absolutely loved it. He couldn't speak more highly about the content and the simple to read way it is written. It gives lots of helpful tips for knots that he hadn't found in any other book to date. Would definitely recommend to any crew/skipper.
