    A Very Useful Classroom Tool

    Posted by Josh Almes on Oct 14th 2020

    I love everything you folks put out and you can't beat the price. This particular study tool has an excellent review of the two arguments with some nuance to the case that is much appreciated. I do wish we had a little more evidence presented akin to some of the other more historic cases you've made in the past.
