Format: Kindle Edition
This is a great selection of Nietzsche works.
However, I find the Kindle edition to be marred by an abysmal DRM limitation - the clipping limit is set at zero. Meaning you cannot clip any portion of this book nor share it via Kindle's corresponding features onto social networking sites.
For Nietzsche's writings, I find that to be unacceptable.

My review rating of 3 refers to the digital copy quality only and not to the literary content, which is surely deserving of a solid 5/5.

If you have a choice - get this book from another digital store. Clipping limit of 0% on THIS book is an atrocity.

With this and "Thus spake..." you are set for Nietzsche. And what a journey it is! An oft-misunderstood and misrepresented philosopher, who it is both exciting and unnerving to read.

By A Customer on 28 Jun. 1999
Format: Hardcover
Nietzsche's writings have long been marred by the dark fog of ignorance and prejudice promoted by reactionary obscurantists. It's refreshing to approach the ideas of the philosopher oneself and to experience the visceral jolt that comes with the realization that not only is Herr Doktor Professor brilliantly incisive but that, more-over, he is screamingly funny. A razor-sharp wit! Mr. Kaufmann's translation is marvelous, too, for all the care it gives to the inimitable punster's saws and witty jibes (lost, or just plain over-looked, in so many other [lesser] translations). Conclusion: A thoroughly worthwhile endeavor that will stay with one long past one has put down the book.

This book contains three unmissable works: Beyond Good and Evil, On the Geneology o Morals, and Ecce Homo. All are brilliant.
