These are the best books on ropework that I have found. The books are important enough that I will ignore the female breasts in the instructional bondage photographs. Some of the ties appear to be missing steps, but the photographs are of high enough quality that it is generally possible to reconstruct the missing bits.

I have read this bood cover to cover but have not put it into practice, I do intend to. It is quite informative and the illustrations are top knotch. It is more of an artist book and it claims to not maintain the positions for prolonged periods of time. So if you are looking for someting more practical, take the info and apply it towards your goals.

Volume 2 of the "Complete Shibari" series is equally as useful and informative as the first installment. The book takes your through the basics to more advanced techniques with ease. The photo illustrations leave very little to question and very few assumptions are made of the reader.

While this title stands very well on it's own, I do recommend that you pick up Volume 1. You will not regret the purchase.

This is a great book if you have some experience in rope suspension. The author notes that everyone should have some practical training (and I agree) before performing any of these suspensions. Good explainations on rope basiscs and really excellent simple how-to photos. Highly recommend this as an addition to any rope library.

Sometimes it's hard to write books for advanced practitioners of niche subjects. This book does it well. It doesn't hold your hand through the ties. If you don't know how to do basic stuff, get a beginner book. No, scratch that, leave your house and meet people. Find others who are into the same weird kinks you are and help each other get better. Eventually, you will understand what this book is talking about and be able to actually follow it. But by then would you really care? That's the question. I followed all the examples just fine, but I already knew most of it. I picked up a couple of interesting tidbits, but I can't say it dramatically changed anything I was already doing. Though given the dearth of books like this available, it's good for a coffee table book or simply to promote niche authors in the scene.

This book has all the details you really need to know for doing suspensions, and is pretty easy to follow. The notations took me some getting used to. Overall an excellent book for someone learning rope work.

This is the real deal on how to start doing suspensions. The book has lots of color photos and it gives you the straight forward way to start on how to do the bondage and finally how to bring that bondage skyward. It is a follow up to the "Land" version; that the author of this book also has written. They really do go together. The book is not preachy about the suspensions and it has a few easy to do suspensions. Once you go "Sky" there is no turning back. One drawback is the icons they use to show how the knots and ropes have to go are really confusing and hard to follow at first. Another issue, I was hoping that the discussions they have on the physics of the lifts had more real world examples. Get past those few issues; and you will have your friends flying the friendly skies in no time.

This is a great stepping stone into the touchy subject of suspention its very easy to grasp the concept there are no written instructions persay except at the begining for the usual safety tips and to explain the symbols used in the book. I do NOT suggest this if you dont read the first book or know the basics about basic safety.
