I'd never tied anything but a granny knot in my life, and was tying gorgeous, intricate knots within minutes thanks to the detailed photos and instructions in this book. Every step of the knot tying is photographed, as well as explained in writing. Knot and rope basics are explained, and then there are a plethora of options for securing a partner for either mild or more serious play, plus some decorative uses for rope. Buying this book will allow you to use rope to replace corsets, lingerie, arm restraints, collars, etc. For a beginner who was concerned about safety, I found it reassuring that they explain which knots will slide when pulled on, and which ones won't. Most of the restraints they demonstrate are secure so that they won't tighten even when the ropes are pulled on.
With one simple, innocuous length of rope, you can secure a partner in such a large variety of positions that you would otherwise require a duffel bag worth of accessories for. Plus, it's not as scary to have tucked away in the back of a drawer hoping no one besides your parter will ever discover it. Perfect for any minimalist, and especially anyone new to rope bondage. I am thrilled with the book.
