From camping to rock climbing, your safety depends on choosing and tying knots correctly. With this handy guide, you can tackle every task from DIY to tying fishing or sailing lines with complete confidence.

Knots Step by Step presents the 100 most useful knots for sailing, fishing, camping, climbing, and decorative uses. It explains how to tie highwayman hitches, monkey fists, bowlines, and many other key knots. Its clear uncluttered images show you exactly what to do, taking you from the easiest overhand knot to the decorative Turk's head five-lead four-bight knot.

This indispensable book identifies the knot you need. Are you climbing and depend on a failsafe knot? The figure-of-eight's distinctive shape makes it easy to check it has been tied correctly. A slipped-release is useful when you need to untie your knot quickly. And if you ever want to know if a knot has been untied, try the quirky "thief" knot - so-called because a thief will betray their presence by retying it incorrectly.

You'll also learn the history behind the different types of knots and the fascinating stories behind how many of them came about.

Knots Step by Step comes with a practice rope attached to the book, so you can practice the knots as many times as you want until you are completely confident. Without doubt, this is the ideal book to have to hand for whenever a knot is needed.
