About the Author
Bertrand Russell (1872–1970) was one of the most formidable thinkers of the modern era. A philosopher, mathematician, educational innovator, champion of intellectual, social and sexual freedom, and a campaigner for peace and human rights, he was also a prolific writer of popular and influential books, essays and lectures on an extensive range of subjects.
Considered to be one of the most controversial figures of the twentieth century, Bertrand Russell is widely renowned for his provocative writings. These definitive works offer profound insights and forward-thinking perspectives on a changing western society progressively shaped, most significantly, by two world wars, the decline of British imperialism and an evolving moral landscape.

What distinguishes Russell is his ability to put great wisdom into very clear writing that is fairly easy to understand.
His style is unpretentious and goes right to the heart of the matter, combining a powerful intellect and a mastery of the English language.
He comes across as a humanist and liberal in favour of the ordinary man and woman and against religious dogma and the authoritarian state.
And aside from some academic philosophical subjects he deals with practical issues that are highly relevant to the times we live in today.
Every time I take this off the bookshelf it inspires and impresses me.
