The authors and collaborators on this book have huge credentials (professors, award winners, international bestsellers, and one of the illustrators worked on Tintin). The goal they set out to accomplish on their quest was seemingly infinite and yet a "solution" was arrived at in a timely manner. Amazingly the book is not alienating and even funny at time. This should be a History and Philosophy (and maybe even Math) supplement for High School students.
Fun look at a semi-biography of Bertrand Russel and a contemporary history of logic theory. The story was well-composed and kept me engaged from start to finish in a 3-4 hr period. You won't be an expert on logic theory or mathematics after reading but it does provide a nice synopsis on the evolution of the baseline ideas. As an engineer, I really enjoyed it!
Not bad--the reviews I read said that this book made complex mathematical theories accessible to the average reader. It's very interesting but I think if the reviews are correct I may be a little more thick than the average reader.
Wonderful book about the history of logic
My mom picked this book up (she is not a graphic novel reader) and was impressed with the graphic novel medium's ability to increase the accessibility without comprimising the seriousness / weighty-ness of the subject.
