Knots to Simplify Your Life is about everyday life and not just boating, as the writer, Miki Anagrius, shows how a basic understanding of knots is a useful, fun and attractive tool that enables us to hang and carry items, store, organise and link various objects.

The areas of use are many: tie a shoelace knot that never loosens but is easy to undo, adjust the height of lamps and flower pots suspended from the ceiling, bunch up newspapers bound for the recycling, bring the flask along to the training session, bind your roast and herbs in the kitchen, suspend your bicycle from the ceiling and restrain overly eager pets - with a dose of competence at knots many problems may be solved in an attractive and practical way.

Knots to Simplify Your Life also informs on the different types of rope, knots and string, how to stop bits of rope from fraying, and how to connect different lengths of rope and make practical loops.
