I love this book so much because it details how to do everything from cut leather, making your own dressing, plaiting from 16 down to 4 as well as shows how to make pretty patterns. I have highlighted and taken so many notes in the margins of this book that I need to buy another one to keep in good shape.
The illustrations in this book are great and done by the author. I feel they give you a special insight into the thought process of Ron Edwards and a small glimpse through his eyes. I love when he captions who the subject of the art work is.
Ron isn't going to tell you how to make a paracord whip and he says flat out that he has no use for them.
With that said, there is so much information that is usable for both bullwhips and paracord whips. You just have to think about it in a different context.
If you are serious about learning to plait and want to get this book please be advised that he has 3 books out. This one has the info in the other two complied inside and the extra bonus that it is a big hard bound book that should last and last.
I love this book and I think you will too!
