**"Principia Mathematica" worth "reading"?**

Hi everybody,

I have read about Principia Mathematica in many books, and sites on the Net, so I would like to ask you if you know anything about it,or even read some parts of it. What is it exactly ? Is this really important? I read that Godel has taken it into account in order to prove his incompleteness theorem. Is it, in its basic concepts, similar as to the mathematical system of the

ZF-Set Theory?And finally is it worth reading? I have read some reviews in Amazon.com and some say its great, while others that it simply can't be read.

Any help would be appreciated.

Note1: I am not familiar at all with mathematical logic

Note1:I have not posted this in book reviews as I think it's not only a book
