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.
