This book is over 700 pages and feels heavy in my hand. It is a collection of essays and speeches by this famous philosopher. I have to confess I did not read all the articles. But for those that I selected and read, I find the writing to be fluent and the ideas presented easy to follow. I also feel I connect with a lot of Russell's thinking. This is my first book by Russell and I plan to seek out more. If you have an open mind on religion, faith and life, this book will provide you with plenty of food for thought. Highly recommended!
