This is a great primer to shibari and I would suggest people pick it up if they want to learn some simple ties that they can expand upon easily and customize to fit their personal tastes. However if you want to just be able to tie all the ties pictured in the book you may want to get some experience with rope and be patient with yourself to get them all done.

The beauty of Japanese Rope Bondage is coveted by many beginners. Knowing where it start is often a road block. This book is exactly what you need to begin your journey. With step by step illustrations, you are given all the tools you need to jump in. Covering everything from history, safety, after care, and a step by step scene analysis, this book has all you need for a solid foundation.

This iconic book by kink educator Midori has really set the standard for what similar books will look like for a long time. Over 10 years since its initial publication, the information doesn't feel dated at all, and rather will be a welcome addition to the library of any bondage enthusiast.

Beginners will enjoy Mindori's first two sections of the book, which include safety, rope care/maintenance and other important aspects that partners will enjoy reading. Be warned, however, positions in the book are not meant for the faint-of-heart! My partner and I are fairly inflexible and had difficulty bending our bodies into the pictured positions. Overall, this book is highly informative - not to mention that the pictures are gorgeous!

Midori's book is a must-have for bondage beginners and collectors of beautiful rope bondage art. The instructions are surprisingly simple and easy to follow, and while I was slightly disappointed by the small number of diagrams and the lack of fancier techniques, I still think this is an excellent, high-quality book that's worth buying just so you can look at it.

The Seductive Art of Japanese Bondage encompasses a lot in a very clear, easy to understand manner. It's very basic and will undoubtedly appeal to the beginner rope enthusiast and be a bit too simple for the experienced. Terrific job covering all the fundamentals from the top and the bottom point of view without going too deep or leaving you feeling like you missed something. A GREAT beginner book!

A great book if you've seen or heard of Japanese bondage but don't know how to begin performing it. Nicely illustrated and explanatory, but it's definitely a beginner's book and doesn't go into advanced techniques and positions.
