Logicomix: An Epic Search for Truth Logicomix: An Epic Search for Truth by Apostolos Doxiadis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Did you know I was a math major in college? I wasn’t necessarily interested in math problems as much as I was just good at getting the answers right. Logicomix delves into some difficult questions at the very root of mathematics, that stuff that I wasn’t interested in, and makes it really interesting. And it’s not just the fact that it’s in graphic novel form, but that it’s in a nice narrative form that puts you into the story. This effectively puts Bertrand Russell’s life and pursuit of answers into a fine perspective, accessible to a LOT more people than would have ever been interested in the topic, including geeks like me who should have been interested in it in the first place. Tremendous.
