This is pretty much the bible for vertical rope work (except for rescue work). It is for cavers, canyoneers, etc., but arborists must look elsewhere (Jeff Jepsen's "Tree Climber's Companion" is an excellent starting place).

No other book is needed when learning about hanging from a rope. An excellent resource to have in your library.
