If you have ever wondered how to tie really complicated knots, then, this complete visual guide is the very handbook that will offer you the best instruction of all.

With the step-by-step guidance that was clearly presented in this book, I learned how to tie a "monkey's fist" and, believe me, I feel that this was quite a satisfying triumph (since I'm someone who is usually all thumbs).
