Logicomix is a graphic novel about mathematics, logic, philosophy, war, Bertrand Russell, the Vienna Circle, Ludwig Wittgenstein, and Godel’s incompleteness theorem. Oh, and Truth, with a very capital T. Despite that unlikely description, the work is a real page-turner. (I forced myself to ration my reading each night, to make it last.)

You don’t have to have a Ph.D. in logic or mathematics to read Logicomix. You don’t even have to have taken logic, or even know who Bertrand Russell was (though it will admittedly make the work more interesting if you do). Beautifully illustrated, compellingly narrated, Logicomix is a brilliant examination of why and how logic matters. Really.
