Very clear explanation and pictures of useful knots. The pictures are photographs, step-by-step, in making the knot or splice. I've owned this book for 30 years and refer to it again and again. I found the Strngle Knot, which sounds horrible, but is the very best knot for tying together a split chair leg or other round object while the glue is drying. Or a substitute for two half-hitches that unties more easily.
