Maseches Middos Mefureshes

I was recently introduced to this sefer called מסכת מדות מפורשת (Bnei Brak, 5765) written by R' Meir Yehoshua Bogard.
   It contains the text of the Mishnah with a running commentary anthologized from a few sources, primarily Tiferes Yisrael. The author also adds some more in-depth insights along the bottom on certain topics discussed in the main commentary. Inside the front and back covers are some nice photos of two recent models of the Mikdash (along with contact info) and in the back of the sefer are floorplans of the Mikdash, including a reprint of the floorplan from an old Yachin and Boaz Mishnayos.
   Although not everything in the commentary is annotated to my liking, it does give a good explanation of the masechta and would be a step up for someone who already went through the Kehati.
