in the Milchamos Hashem on the rif
the gemara menachos basically says you need techeiles (unless the garment is ripped)
Menachot 39b implies that a silk garment doesn’t need techeiles because its only derabanan
the ramban said ‘R’ Zerachiah HaLevi did not wear any tzitzit his whole life’
Meor is on the rif 11b shabbos (rif daf)
the Ramban quotes the Maharam saying that one shouldnt wear tzitzis today because it requires tcheiles. In which case cotton or poly is better. using today’s tcheiles isn’t better in this regard because its unlikely the right type & tying pattern.

It addresses topics that most don’t such as why guys thank hashem for not creating them women and were men not created in His will.
from as much as I’ve seen it so far it is an incredible work
