When we find a topic we hold true to our hearts, we'll occasionally cling long enough to produce a series. These publications cover topics from start to finish, just enough to arm readers with enough to be dangerous. We may not be a 500 dollar online bootcamp, but we do explain things like human beings, and occasionally even drop the F-bomb. Trust us, it's way more fun (and perhaps effective) to stick to something this way.
