You could almost call this handy little book, the 'everything you need to know about clips and clamps guide in a "pinch.' Although that bad pun would take away from the fact that the author Jack Rinella has put together a lot of valuable information in a very small, quickly read (I finished this in under an hour) book. He also includes several photographs of various types of clamps (from clothespins to menacing looking Japanese clover clamps), along with short descriptions of clamp play scenes he's received from various people in emails over the last year or so.
The book as mentioned is a short read and contains just five chapters (you could almost read this before doing this type of scene). Besides an introductory chapter, there are also chapters devoted to "pain management," clothespins, even "advanced clamping." Oh my. I've enjoyed Jack's other books and this one makes it clear he knows a great deal about the art of "clip and clamp play."
