I have to admit that most of the philosophical and mathematical discussion was over my head. My wife is a big fan of symbolic logic so I think she enjoyed it more. Russell himself, however, is a compelling figure. His encounters with mental illness in both his family and his profession shape much of his personal story. His intellectual brilliance did not extend to his personal life, in which he was quite a disastrous husband and father. The story's ultimate philosophical conclusion is a satisfying one.
