On this Kindle Edition

For the modest sum of four pounds this treasure of a book for all those who are passionate about thought can be downloaded on one's kindle in what is a fine, elegant translation of a fine, elegant statement of a very high-ranking thinker.
The book is delightful on many levels, the poetry and songs particularly appealed to me and one has to go far back in time, to the superior literature of the ancient world, to find anything that matches the quality of the writing achieved in The Gay Science.
It is an aristocratic book in the genuine sense of the word, i.e. belongs to the very best, and should provide plenty of motivation and act as a test to budding thinkers in the united kingdom and, indeed, the world, who want to prove their salt and worth in a time too 'busy' to think.
A book for the few no doubt but which gives reason enough to feel grateful to be one of those few!
