Tzel Heharim - Laws of Tzitzit

Rabbi Yitzhak learns in the same Beit Midrash as me, so I thought I'd plug his new book: Tzel Heharim - Tzitzit.

From Feldheim's website:

This highly praised book is the first comprehensive scholarly work in English to address exclusively the laws of tzitzit. In easy-to-understand text, the author elucidates the complex laws and concepts of Tzitzit according to the Sephardic tradition, making them accessible to readers of all backgrounds. Over seventy photographs and illustrations accompany the discussion of the minimally required dimensions of the tallit katan and tallit gadol; the step-by-step procedure of donning the tallit; four-cornered garments made of different materials; affixing the ritual strands; what to do if the ritual strands are torn, and other important topics. The first of a multi-volume set, this work is destined to become an indispensable reference for layman and scholar alike.

Still seems strange that if I wear a four cornered garment, nobody expects tzitziyot, but if you do...

I have a large, square woolen shawl I keep in shul to protect me from the draft... nothings's tied at the corners.

You've been quiet for a while; are you working on another announcement?
