This is merely a commentary on Bertrand Russell's work, not an original Russell text. Be forewarned if you are looking for original material!

Here's the empathetic Bertrand Russell trying to assuage people's misery, labouring as we all do under the weight of wholly obscene social relations wherein we have little save insecurity and pain. His weakness is that he fails to direct our attention to the source problem, namely the continued existence of monopoly capitalism/imperialism. He does show us how we can make the best of our lives under this archaic system that needs to be swept into the dustbin of history.

You can tell by the last couple of reviews that this is not the Russell text and it does not claim to be. If you read the description before you buy the book you would probably figure this out. Sorry to be so negative I am just very tired of all these kind of reviews on Amazon.
'nuff said.

be warned. this is not an electronic copy of the conquest of happiness by bertrand russell that is on my shelf. i was hoping for that one.

to be fair, i haven't read it. just enough to realize it's not the original. it takes his ideas and applies them to now. it may be a great job. but i was looking for the original.
