Format: Paperback
If you don't crave a 'classic' intro to Nietzsche but just want to find your way around, then look no further than this unpretentious nugget. How so?

Follow my thought experiment. A gangster holds a pistol to my brains and demands that I tell him the best introduction to the thought of Nietzsche. After some sweating and stuttering on my part, I further learn that he has no background in philosophy, and that he wants a single book that is not too large and not too old. He's just happened across a few of those good `ol Nietzsche quotes and wants to learn more.

This isn't a time for dilly-dallying or shades of opinion. It's do or die. I have to give an answer. And the answer I spurt out is - 'Nietzsche: The Key Ideas' by Roy Jackson.

He pushes me away with a final threatening glare and tells me to run and not look back. So as I sprint all the way to the nearest toilet, I ponder on the wisdom of my choice. Why that book above all the rest?

It's relatively recent (2008) and reads like it.

It assumes nothing even to the point of feeling like it's killing me softly with explainations at times. For instance, Jackson takes a few pages to detail the background of Schopenhauer's philosophy (one of the main early influences on Nietzsche) by journeying all the way back to Plato, then on to Descartes and Spinoza, Locke and Berkeley, and finally on to Kant (14-18). Same again with his discussion of the naturalistic fallacy (60-62) and the different varieties of nihilism (100-102). At such points, it reads more like and intro to philosophy than to a philosopher.

Then I have to remind myself: it was explicitly written with no prior knowledge in view. I can't criticise it for being what it is supposed to be. Amor fati!
