Finally a bondage guide I'm not ashamed to use.
Something genuinely different about this book is the clarity of thinking that comes from years in the BDSM community, and a true interest in representation.

Sections like the brief paragraphs on aftercare are just really thoughtful: 'aftercare isn't over 30 minutes after the session, a simple text can make a sub feel better' is amazing advice.

A bigger issue though is how the book welcomes EVERYONE to experience ropes bondage

Texts that have good technical details like Shibari and Two Knotty Boys picture *just* women being bound, explicitly or implicitly by men. Two Knotty Boys also has a sort of chuckling tone of leering at a female submissive. Of course this stuff is sexual, but it feels like it breaks the boundaries of trust and respect right within the text.

Lee's book portrays people of multiple genders and body types both binding and being bound. It also offers advice for bodies of different sizes.

All this means I'm not ashamed to have it sitting open so that the sub can see it while I'm tying them.

Technical junk:

The detail views of knots are good, though like all extant shibari books you may wish for more detailed step-by-steps on some knots. Knots by Grog is a great resource for this.

I have both the paper and kindle versions. Both are formatted well with a clear flow that's easy to flip back and forth in.

The format of 'base harness and then variations' is nice, and there's good recommendations for how to practice certain ties.

A good resource for beginners
This book was unfortunately not quite what I had in mind. I'm sure it's a great resource for beginners looking for a zero to 60 primer, but I was hoping there would be less about rope selection and more about how to use it. Don't get me wrong, there are some interesting configurations in the book, but it seems to be focused primarily on either absolute beginner ties or multi-rope macrame-style extravagance. There isn't much in between.

Safe Shibari for All Types
This has both pictures and descriptions and made knots very easy. It's beautifully illustrated and covers the most basic to intermediate knots. My favorite parts of this book is it was LGBTQ friendly (used same-sex couples in many of the pictures) and took into ALL body types and shapes. This book made me feel safe and comfortable with what both me and my top were doing.

Beautiful Art, From the Basics to More Complex Art Pieces
This book is very straight forward and concise with its information, while not being condescending in any way. Be aware it is NSFW (duh!), and there are tons of different models of varying body types, colour, and both male and female. The majority of the rigs require 25-30 ft (8-10m) rope lengths, so make sure to get those if you haven`t. The ties come in varying difficulty levels - though I`m the bunny and don`t need to deal with that - it seems fairly straight forward, with tons of reference photos. Once my partner and I have gotten more comfortable with this I would definitely consider getting its sequel. Personally some of the ties are very thick looking and not as dainty as I would like, particularly the corset-styles. The more difficult ones are definitely more for colour interest and variety rather than practicality, so if you are in it for the art that is good too :)

The reason I gave 5 stars is due to Amazon`s shipping, which significantly crinkled a corner of my book. It was packaged with another book I was giving as a gift, so thank goodness that one didn't get ripped or crinkled, but it very well could have been :( That and the book is fairly short, which for $25 I would expect a bit more, but it being in full colour and the tons of images probably accounts for that.

Very Informative
Very informative. I was amazed at the amount of rope involved. I went from 60 feet to well over 300. An excellent section on rope care, which was very helpful to knowing what to purchase and how to care for it. I would highly recommend it

Great basic ties
Great basic ties, wish they had a few more "building blocks" like ways to tie off extra rope. Pictures and instructions are clear, writing humor makes for an easy read. Great diversity of models.

Good book. Poor binding
This is a good starting to learn the basics of rope work. I appreciated that the first 32 pages are dedicated to teaching about rope type, care and safety. The pictures are helpful and descriptions are succinct. I'm looking forward to progressing through the ties.

Unfortunately the quality of the physical book is far less impressive. I've opened the book a total of 3 times and now pages are falling out. I suppose I can three hole punch the entire thing and put it in a binder...

Me and my partner started with this book, fair to say, the perfect spark to start the kink fire. :)

Mixed Feelings
I thought this book "okay", some of the rope work was just not that intriguing and was highly duplicate of the books "On the Ropes" and "Back on the Ropes", which I already had. If you have those books, Id not recommend this one, but otherwise, this one did have a better description of the different types of materials to choose from when purchasing a rope.

Shibari You Can Use is fun, exciting and full of possibilities
Can a book change your life? yes. have always been interested in shibari and my rope explorations was getting a little stale. previous books were a little too intricate for me......then I saw this book and WOW, rope is fun again. Well written with easy to understand photo illustrations and concise instructions. I bought the second book and cannot wait for it to arrive!

Interested in ropes, must buy
Can't say enough great things about this book! Easy to understand and follow directions to. Clear and easily explained information along with a brief history of the art! It's the feet book of this type I've seen yet, and this rope bunny has read a few!

Great step-by-step book for beginners (like me)
I'm extremely new to learning rope and purchased this book to help guide me. I attended several classes and left feeling overwhelmed from information overload. With this book and it's simply step-by-step instructions, I can use what I learned from the classes and practice at my own pace. I recommend this book.

Awesome first book!
Awesome directions, and illustrations! Love the artistic way this was done, and the fact that it's easy to follow. Just wish the second one wasn't priced so high..

if you are not a beginner
the illistrations are okay and for the most part it told me what i wanted to know and how to do it the problem lies in that i and the husband are new at this kind of stuff and really just gave up after about 20 minutes of awkwardness

Great beginners introduction. Very practical advice and basic knots and bindings that are easy to follow. Many references at the back for those wishing to learn more....

Informative and funny. Lots of pictures. Male and female models. At least one BBW model. I love the way the first step of every tie is "Identify the body part to be tied" with a picture of a hand pointing at the body part.

Great book for beginner. Amazing pictures and plenty of explanations. Only took 5 minutes for me to get my partner all tied up the first time. Looking for stuff more complicated now.

Well written and easy to follow
Well written and easy to follow. Downside is there just isn't much to this book. Not sure I would recommend it. Would I let it collect dust in my library, yes. Would it be my go to book for anything, no.
