The descriptions and illustrations were lacking, but the information on applications of various knots, splices, lashings, etc, was very helpful. Good for those who are already familiar with knots and lashings.

Little explanation of why specific knots are useful, making the tying excercise rather academic. The illustrations are very poor in some cases, kind of a non-starter in a handbook designed to illustrate.
