3.0 out of 5 stars Russellian with a vengeance !
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...

This review is from: Principles of Mathematics (Routledge Classics) (Paperback)
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.
