Newcomers and relatively inexperienced hammock owners like myself benefit enormously from reading "The Ultimate Hang" before heading to the woods with our bag of ropes and nylon. Once you've hung out a bit, you'll reread later portions of the book to learn about various tackle like Whoopie slings and Dutch buckles. Derek's style is light and breezy with lots of alternative ways to accomplish the same task: hanging your hammock for a good night's sleep.
The book does not exhaust every possibility, nor does it try to. There's enough to get you good and going safely and Derek is not shy about telling you where else to go for more information. (I recommend his website for starters). "The Ultimate Hang" strikes a good balance, good introductory material with enough intermediate nuggets of wisdom to really whet your appetite for more.
Highly recommended for new hangers and those who think they might want to be.
