This is my desert island book. It has everything: useful information, stories, humour, excellent diagrams and amusing drawings. And it's the most comprehensive book on knots there is.

This is the most complete book on knots you will find. However, it is not the best guide on how to tie knots. It's organized by various tradesmen and the knots that they would use. If you plan to buy a copy be sure to look it over. I have found numerous copies with badly printed pages.
