I learned many things which is always a good thing. Just wish I didn't have to wait so long for the issue.

Print is too small for older readers like me.

A breath of fresh air during an unsettling time.

I loved the content and the quality of the photography. I also appreciate the additions that have been made to address the current climate.

I would recommend to a friend, but I also wish that it had more pages and content. I love the graphics, the layout and the images. I enjoy magazines that have pullout posters and added qualities that make it a collectible.
