In reviewing Griffin's book Russell's Idealist Apprenticeship, Ray Monk comments that Griffin's account of Russell's early philosophical development 'is more detailed, more coherent, more plausible and ultimately more interesting' than some previous accounts,[2] and that the book is 'is one of the finest works of philosophical scholarship I have ever read'.[3]
