At last, the Two Knotty Boys have given us the book that will allow people to easily understand how to safely incorporate rope bondage into erotic fun. Granted there have been other texts published on erotic bondage, some have been better than others, but none had all of the elements needed. The "boys" got it right.

If you are in the least bit interested in rope bondage, you must get this book. Look at the price, it's a steal. I actually feel bad about paying such a low cost for such a valuable asset. At $16.95 the 37 step by step techniques comes out to .46cents per tie. You'll look great as you tie them and the knots are fantastic looking. Oh, and the person tied will be comfortable, safe, and helpless. What more could we ask for.

The "boys" have a perfect background, a industrial rigger, a climber, both backgrounds require safety as the basis for everything. The both love bondage and have taught many, many classes. This means they have learned how to teach the techniques to hundreds of others. It shows in the layout of the book. Simple step by step photos that match the written instructions. No matter what the level of the reader, this book will make you better.

Don't wait, get this book now. You will not be disappointed. If there was an award for BDSM books, this would win book of the year.

Great job, destined to be the definitive text on erotic bondage!!! 5 stars..at least.

The book went beyond my expectations. For the price I expected a book that was short on content and information. True, this book doesn't have many pages, but boy it sure is packed full of useful bondage techniques! This is the best book I've found on the subject of rope bondage period.

Most books I've looked at on this topic showed few techniques and use too many words and not enough pictures to explain the ties. This book is completely different. It's easy to follow with detailed pictures and simple written explanations.

I was surprised that after learning many of the knots and ties from this book just how quick, easy and beautiful my rope bondage became. I also learned how to completely restrain my partner, something that was very difficult before because of her small wrists bones. The photos and instructions are very easy to follow, and even the most difficult ties became easy after a few practice sessions.

Worth picking up? Absolutely!!!

After only having gone thru the book once or twice, I can say it's well worth the money. More color photo's would have been nice, but not a deal killer.

There were a few typo's, like saying clockwise and meaning counter-clockwise, but otherwise there is good information to be had. I'm skipping over the decorative knots myself (spending all my time as a rope-person telling newbies that you DON'T need to know many knots), but I can already see some good ties that I wasn't already using.

Simply put,a good deal for the $$...

I'm new to the whole thing so I decided to buy some books because of the new GF that liked being tied up. This was one of them.

She tried to be patient while I messed around with the knots in this book. Sure, they look pretty, but they take a LONG time compared to most other methods. These guys spend a lot of time with intricate and difficult knots. This book isn't so bad, but it definitely shows that this is their focus. Bored the hell out of the GF.

If that's your thing then OK. But there's other methods that are faster and don't require a bunch of fancy knots. You can make good looking ties with only 4. In this regard I prefer the stuff like Midori. Went to one of her workshops, bought one of her books...better method IMHO. They are completely different so comparing really isn't fair but as a beginner that bought this book and then bored the hell out of his bottom...I just can't recommend it. Maybe AFTER learning the quicker, Japanese style bondage go for this for a change/test.

**Intro**
This book is slightly oversized and 73 pages long, making it about the size and shape of a special edition magazine. It is full of lots of black and white...er...shades of gray shall we say? ;-)...pictures that are about 1.5" square each, and show step-by-step instructions on how to do different rope ties. Some of the ties are pretty complicated, and one or two of them have on the order of 50 steps! The models in most of the pictures are super attractive, and most of the ties in this book are highly decorative and intricate. Apart from being B&W, the photos are high quality.

**Advantages**
There are a wide variety of ties here. There are a few ties for preparing partners for sex, and more for dominating and humiliating partners, decorating partners (and yourself), and also a few for basic restraint bondage. There is also a pretty large section about decorative knots that are complex enough that I haven't been patient enough to try them, though they do look really awesome.

**Disadvantages**
It would be more fun if they had some color pictures inside the book. The only color photo is the front cover. It bothers me a little that they used hardware store grade nylon rope for all of the ties shown in the book, but I think they did this for the sake of contrast in the B&W photos, and it does prove that everyone can do fancy stuff with cheap rope. They talk about how to prepare rope ends in the beginning of the book, which is excellent, but I was a little disappointed that they didn't explain how to do the palm and needle method. The methods that they do show are almost too obvious, and not very suave (taping the ends or melting the ends).
