Overall this book was a disappointment. With Russell’s reputation I expected pointed and telling stories, but they failed to deliver. The stories were bland. The various other works included were better; parables, nightmares, anecdotes. Some of the anecdotes were downright hilarious, but they made up a very small part of the book.
