I'll be brief. Mr. Russell is brilliant and engaging. This is clear headed logic at it's best....what a great respite from status quo insanity.

Russell lived and died long before I was on this earth, but I feel so close to him in philosophy after listening to his essays. He articulates what I have thought and felt since abandoning christianity, and theism in general. I can listen to Russell over and over.

I'm glad to think that Bertrand Russell lived until 1970 and therefore long enough to see some of the liberal reforms for which he argued, come to fruition. In these essays from the early part of the 20th Century, he is too coy even to use the word 'homosexuality', but makes oblique references as he argues for greater tolerance. In a way, these essays have dated because our society has (thankfully) moved on so much. In his day he would have been dynamite!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The content is as expected - brilliant Bertie, however the performance and style of reading are dreadful. So bad in fact that I'm not enjoying this audio book at all.
What didn’t you like about Terrence Hardiman’s performance?
Absolutely nothing. Dreadful reading style.
