Normally I recommend any book in the "How to Rock Climb" series but the drawings of the knots in this book are not so easy to see as in another knot book: "Knots and Ropes for Climbers."

Format: Paperback
Skimpy, poorly illustrated, a genuinely cavalier and flip tone mark this book as a disappointment. Though it's OK for advanced climbers who desire a cursory review of the range of climbing knots, bends and hitches available, this book is absolutely worthless for beginners. Get Knots & Ropes for Climbers by Duane Raleigh, it's much clearer, better illustrated, more fun to read and learn from.

Format: Paperback
Knots for Climbers has a few benefits. The basic knots are depicted in step by step procedures which is helpful for the beginning climber. Though the book is exhaustive it does give a good description of the "how to" and "why" of each knot that the book covers. Though with buying other books this one seemed very redundant because the basic knots covered in this book are also covered in other books (which contain a slew of other knots that this book doesn't cover).

Format: Paperback
Excellent book for bringing along to the rock and practicing with friends.
It is thin enough to fit alongside your guide book in your pack.
It is concise enough so you don't get lost in lots of reading.
It covers all the knots I use and a few more.
Of course, you should practice the knots before you go up the rock.
