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.
