Wittgenstein

A Listmania! list by Keith McCormick (North Carolina, USA)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "If I win the lottery, I will take a couple of years off and study philosophy. In the meantime, I have this problem with buying every Wittgenstein book I find. Obviously, one does not need multiple "intro" books, but I have enjoyed comparing them."
Ludwig Wittgenstein: The Duty of Genius
1.  Ludwig Wittgenstein: The Duty of Genius by Ray Monk
The list author says:
  "Great! Worth reading and rereading. Wittgenstein was an odd fellow in many ways. Monk's book is a required stop trying to figure out his philosophy and personality."
