Though I still didn't understand everything about the philosophical and mathematical theories discussed in the book, I think I understood a lot more about both Russell's life and his work through this format than I would have if I had been reading a traditional nonfiction book. In fact, I know I learned more about him than I otherwise would have, since I never would have even picked up a full biography about him had it not been in graphic novel form.
I think this book really shows the strengths of graphic novels for teaching information that has the potential to be dry, overwhelming, and potentially uninteresting by presenting it in a much more creative and accessible way. Some understanding is better than none at all!
