This Was One Book That Was KNOT Fun For Me...

I think this book is worth the price and an essential for any kinkster's book collection just because even if has a bit of a learning curve for those not super-enthusiastic about learning how to tie it can prove to be a popular book among contacts and friends. I however would not recommend it to those that have little patience and motivation to learn or that simply want to get tied up by others unless that's who you're buying this for of course.

Before I start this review I should probably mention I have the patience of a child when it comes to learning, that said its probably the reason why this book didn't help me much.

The Two Knotty Boys (or TKB as many know them as) Back On The Ropes is a book detailing 61 ties in full graphic color with many awesome photographs of models both big and small alongside the instructions for those ties. I got this book in hopes of it helping me learn ties easier but it just frustrated me even more.

The book is helpful, don't get me wrong! Its just that the words they use to describe many of the motions of each tie and the way many of the instructional pictures are taken may be very difficult for some people understand in that some people can learn via text and pictures while some require more in-depth visual explanations or videos which I soon found after getting this book. Knowing your learning style is really important before you grab this though at the same time the book is good to have around as a reminder if you forget specific parts of a tie.

The book is broken into 7 large chapters, included in this book are 13 knots, 10 'Clever Tricks', 9 'Unique Iterations', 8 Decorative ties, 9 'Maximum Exposure' ties, 6 Intermediate Harnesses, and 6 Advanced Harnesses; along with variations of 2 of the basic wraps and straps (multiple uses for each). All and all this is a very neat book with so many things to learn from and a great resource to have around for both other people to learn from and to inspire new ideas out of. As a little bonus this book has a very detailed safety section that's great for sharing with others that are brand new to kink/rope bondage so props to TKB for including that!

Again though I really just didn't have the patience or motivation to try and make sense of the instructions this book gave, I guess I'm just not much of a rigger as much as I am a person that likes getting tied up by others. Hopefully a day will come in the future where I pick this book up and not get frustrated to no end trying to learn from it; until then I may lend it out to a contact or two as well as have it on hand at play parties as a wonderful bit of information for those that seek it.
Follow-up commentary
While my patience for rope bondage learning still has yet to increase having this book around for play parties or to lend out has proven fairly useful in itself when the need arises, though I think I've definitely figured out I prefer to be the one being tied up instead of doing the tying heh.

    Knot tying can be frustrating to learn even if you have someone demonstrating it to you in person! Thanks for the review, at elast we know that the instructions in this book might not work for everyone.

    Hmm... I learn better by watching, so this book won't really help me. :/
