Chad Poole was born in Alabama and has been fascinated with knots from an early age. He honed his knot tying skills in seclusion until a few years ago, when he started a paracord blgo. The blog was originally intended to be a paracord showcase, but it quickly turned into a popular teaching website where readers can learn to tie the designs showcased on the blog.

I was incredibly fascinated by this book. I have never seen so many paracord designs and knots in one place. This weekend calls for rain and the kids and I are definitely going to pick up some cording and create something. We will start with the Zipper Bar then move on to the Surreal Sawtooth Bar. These are some amazing designs and the illustrations are so detailed and so easy to understand. We will get so many projects out of this one book!
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
