Highly recommended for people who'd like a quick introduction to Russel.
This book is more about Russell's ideas and writings than his personal life. Grayling seems to me to do a fair analysis of Russell's philosophical stances and his works. This book is brief, but is rather jam-packed with brief summaries of many of Russell's greatest achievements.
Anyone interested in knowing who Bertrand Russell was, what he believed, what his most deeply held convictions were, and what he contributed to 20th century culture should find this small volume a good source to consult. If you are a Russell fan, this book is not a bad purchase, and even if your interests are only tangential to the philosophy of Russell, you can hardly lose by getting this book.
