Russell: A Very Short Introduction - A.C. Grayling A very capable introduction to Russell's thoughts and actions. Grayling did about as good of a job as one could do given the length constraints of the "Very Short Introduction" series. It would be difficult to get too descriptive when one only has 138 pages to deal with everything from Russell's personal life, to his contributions to mathematics, philosophy, pacifism, nuclear disarmament, educational policy, sex, atheism, etc. It served its purpose admirably, by giving me a taste of Russell's philosophy, and whetting my appetite for more.
