It's just unbelievable that a book who claims to discuss an introduction about Bertrand Russell in any moment (that's true) remarks his works on religion and atheísm and what he passed through for attacking the christianism.
What such a deception!

Como los demás libros de la colección, supone una amena aproximación al tema. Recomendable para tener una base con que abordar el pensamiento de Russell con mayor profundidad (o poder defenderse en una charla de amigos/partida de Trivial ^^)

The kind of book i would never have read 15 years ago because i would have derided it for its introduction-ness and dismissed it as 'for dilettantes'. Having recently remembered that i AM a dilettante when it comes to philosophy, i found it very informative.

One of the better 90 minute books, this placed bertrand russell into the historical line perfectly and totally made clear his place in the lineage of philosophy. Fantastic intro to his ideas, making their purpose, goals and achievements, shortcomings, ect all extremely clear to me.
