Does anyone have a recommendation for a beginner knot-tying book? A few months ago crossfit posted a book with one of the WODS but I can't locate it.

I bookmarked this site some time ago ... not sure if it was the one included in the WOD or if I got it somewhere else ... hope it helps.

I bought a couple of books by Geoffrey Budworth that were quite good. "The Complete Book of Knots" was nicely illustrated and photographed. I found that many of the online resources were really hard to follow, mainly due to poor illustrations.

The Everything Knots Book by Randy Penn

It has about 270 pages of knots, grouped by type, use, etc. The illustrations are good, too.
