The information in this book was very good, and the instructions aren't bad. The issues are:
A. While the cover is bright and colorful, the pictures in the book are all black and white. It does say that on the cover, but unless you zoom in and look you don't really notice in the ad.
B. You can get very good detail in black and white if it's done correctly, even better than color in some instances. This was not one of those times. Now I don't know if this is a printing quality issue or not in this case. Several of the pictures use black paracord for the demonstration. This would have been fine if the picture quality was better or the lighting was different, but in many cases it makes it really hard to see and follow the overs and unders of the various knots. The pictures that use "colored" paracord are much easier to make out and follow.
The book does have everything I was looking for, it just takes a little longer to pull off since you have to read and look at the pics more closely and a little longer than one usually would otherwise. Being a visual/tactile learner I would have preferred better pics.
All in all the book is still useable and accomplishes that it was intended to do.
All Wrapped Up in Paracord is a MUCH better book for the beginner or for the experienced paracorder,. This book covers lots of different projects that will actually be useful to the outdoors-person. Exactly what I have been looking for.
Some of the topics covered include a description of the different types of paracord that are available, a list and description of the small number of tools needed, the essential knots and weaving techniques, techniques needed for starting and ending wraps cleanly and neatly, and has projects for making lanyards, straps, key fobs and other useful products,
I really liked the fact that no buckles are needed for the bracelets. I also really like the instructions for making various handle wraps for knives, walking staffs and other items. There is even a project teaching how to make a sling (as in David and Goliath)!
The instructions are clear and well illustrated with black and white photographs which are very adequate to make the steps clear. Wherever it helps to make the steps more clear, different strands are shown in different shades of grey which make the differences very clear.
