it was amazing

This graphic novel follows Bertrand Russell as he and other early 20th century mathematicians seek to establish a logical basis for all of mathematics (in a sense, proving all of math like we did for geometry in high school classes).

I'm not sure if I'd recommend this to someone without a light background in mathematical theory, but I thought it was fantastic. An engaging, easy read packed with interesting historical info.
