Russell is undoubtedly a brilliant mind and this sometimes goes with a cryptic expression... But here, the "sometimes" turns into "a lot".

If you are both patient and ready to skip the convoluted, if not indigestible sections, then you might safely reach the last page of this monumental work.

If not, then a better route is to use Russell's later "Introduction to Mathematical Philosophy", where he tried and succeeded in clarifying and correcting his thoughts in just 200 pages.

This is not to say that PM doesn't contain illuminating sections, it does but they are gems, lost in dense magma.

I have not managed to read this book fully .I only browse here and there to clarify any doubts.Needless to say Dr.Russell had done a marvellous job but the print odf the text so small it doesnot engage in getting you to read.The abstarct concepts compounded by the poor print doesnot go well.Hope someday I might be able to write complete review of the contents not withstanding the print.
