A fantastic anthology that includes portions of most of Kierkegaards works. Perhaps not the best place to start reading Kierkegaard (Penguin's Papers and Journals would be my suggestion for that role) as there is little in the way of introductory material, but it is an excellent 'second' Kierkegaard book.
Reading this book is a great way to survey Kierkegaards works to identify those you want to read in full (and you will want to read some in full). But it is also a great way to return to the highlights of books you may have read before.
Provocative, inspiring and stimulating. One of the few books I would consider 'essential'.

A book for everyone with an interest in Kierkegaard, from the first-time reader to the more experienced.A wonderful, chronologically arranged anthology from the immensely prodigious output of Soren Kierkegaard, complete with excellent introductory notes.
Someone summarised it very well: The crowning achievement of monumental translation of all of Kierkegaard's published writings.
1 negative: The typography is a bit dense, and in particular, the font size for the running text is small.
