Review: The Autobiography of Bertrand Russell

User Review  - Stephen - Goodreads

All three volumes fascinating reading though I think first was best. I can't begin to follow his mathematical philosophy but you don't have to to enjoy the autobiog, which does not go into the latter. This man's role in stopping atmospheric testing puts him in my pantheon. Read full review
