This book is rather handy if you are studying Nietzsche, perhaps in some philosophy exam and you wish to become acquainted with the salient points of his work. For the price it is a worthwhile edition to the layman who simply wants to know what all the fuss and controversy was about surrounding this troubled thinker.

An excellent primer on what some consider an impenetrable philosopher
Very clearly leads you through the different strands and periods of Nietzsche's periods
Essential reading if you are new to this important figure - makes it all clear so you can explore from a position of clarity

Always fascinating to get reacquainted with some of those aphorisms and thoughts which seem so prescient: the will to power,the Superman,eternal recurrence etc-constantly thought provoking and expressed in such beautiful prose !

Exhilarating, pithy, and authentic, this incisive text does justice to the power of Nietzsche's thinking. In a world of bovine conformity and the erosion of many human virtues - independent thought, stoicism, courage, autonomy, joyful idiosyncrasy - Nietzsche is one of the few potent antidotes. Buy this book as a good introduction. Then read Nietzsche.

If like me you have a lengthy list of book you need to read, and more that you 'want' to read; then these philosophy in an hour booklets will give you the chance to skim the subject with the aid of an expert; and decide if you truly want to know more. This is one of a series of gems which have enabled me to place the ideologies which shaped our history into perspective, without wasting valuable time.

A commentated summary of Nietzsche's philosophies. But the commentator really doesnt do them justice. You dont get a feeling of what Nietzsche was trying to convey. This is okay if you want a quick overview. But if you are actually interested in what he was trying philosophize about, read "Beyond Good and Evil" and "Thus Spoke Zarathustra".

Nietzsche's ideas are complex, subtle and often contradictory. This very terse introduction will help ease you in to them.

It will whet the appetite to further reading.

I'm sure the books that this piece of work refers to would be hard to red. To my mind at least just uplift the pith from this author and get on with the rest of your life !

Good starting point but could have done with more insight to Nietzsche s work if readers are unfamiliar with it.

I really love this one- all you need to know to decide whether to buy any of his work.
