I am not selling this book, despite the blurb attached to the title. My copy has been in my library for many years, finally to be read in the past few weeks.

I had the good opportunity to peruse the Principia Mathematica in our college library and found it much beyond my desire or ability to appreciate. That was nearly a half-century ago, and I am too far into my dotage to revisit that work, even if logical constructs like "Dedekindin Continuity" excited my thoughts at this stage of life.

Bertrand Russell was one of the most powerful minds of the past century, and his life's work continues over forty years after his death. All three volumes of the Autobiography are an essential read for anyone who values justice, tolerance, and love.

Excellent second volume.

Bertrand Russell had an amazing intellect and knew many of the giant intellectuals of his long 98 years on earth. He was very candid about his personal life. Much of the autobiography were letters written to him by now famous people. This was a two edged sword. It was interesting to hear what others wrote, but it gave less space for Russell to expound his personal philosophy. That's why I gave it only 3 stars. However, I will read Volume 2, and I know it will be worth reading.
