This selection of notes is a mandatory purchase for anyone interested in Wittgenstein. It is a thorough introduction to the style of Ludwig, and the notes herein clarify immensely upon what was written in the Tractatus, the Philosophical Remarks, the Philosophical Grammar, and the Blue and Brown Books. Roughly everything but the Philosophical Investigations.
Ambrose concludes in her introduction that what is contained is substantially correct. Her least valued lectures, the ones on Philosophy and Philosophy for Mathematicians, are so because she mostly copied what Wittgenstein said verbatim-- hardly a fault in my view. However, these two sets of lectures are better served as compliments to the Philosophical Remarks (and TLP) and Grammar, respectively.
The Yellow Book is ample by its self, however, and is as cogent of an introduction to Wittgenstein as the Blue and Brown Books. The other set of lectures (no title, just years) are equally a breeze to read, but I have yet to put them under my thumb in the literature of Wittgenstein. Regardless, their addition makes this book a fountain of ideas.
