The length of about four long magazine articles, this book explains about 20 excerpts from L.W.'s works in a very clear way. The book seems especially good at explaining what L.W. was not saying (for example, he was emphatically not critical of Romantic composers, despite his (unwanted) reputation as a "Modernist"). Not a full picture, of course - I didn't get a sense of exactly why L.W. chose Russell and Frege to engage with, or whether he actually meant most of what he said before the age of 40 or so, or whether he was actually a philosopher or an aspiring theologian or rather a technical writer on philosophy - but apparently the author of this book wrote a longer book on L.W.'s life which might answer those questions.
