This is going to be a reference book first and foremost. The instructions are clear and with high quality photos, but it's not an "inspiration" book. I expect to come back to the chapters about risks, safety and basic elements, but much less so to the step by step instructions for full ties.

All in all, I enjoyed the no-pretense style of writing. Makes the practice seem approachable and accessible.

This is the book that transformed me from wanting to get in to bondage to actually doing it. Totally simple and easy to remember, it has me looking at other peoples bondage and figuring out how they did it! A masterpiece of instruction.

Easily the most comprehensive instructional book on the shibari market, covering some very easy to understand safety concerns, some not so easy to understand knot diagrams, and some visually appeasing and clear to understand bondage diagrams.

This was the first book recommended to me for shibari, and to this day, it's the first book I recommend to anyone asking about what book to gram as a beginner.

Great book to get you started in the world of Shibari. Douglas doesn't spend his time teaching you fancy knots, he teaches a few basics then moves it forward to create fun ties for both the top and bottom.

This book is beautiful and a perfect conversation starter to introduce my visitors to shibari.

This is my new favorite bondage book. It is packed edge to edge with color photographs and helpful instructions. If you are looking for the most useful information in the smallest most well illustrated package this is it.
