This is a reference to the Old Testament book of Isaiah of moving from war to peace. First, bear with me while I tell a humorous story of the early days of AFT that relates to plows.

One such book is The Undoing Project by Michael Lewis (author of several other books that have been made into major Hollywood films – including The Blind Side and The Big Short).
