If you've never read Nietzsche before this is a good place to start. R.J. Hollingdale makes a judicious selection from Nietzsche's corpus as befitting one who spent a lifetime devoted to rehabilitating this great thinker for the English speaking world. There is something about Hollingdale's translations that are evocative of the spiritual depths in Nietzsche's prose which turn that prose into a sort of poetry. Nietzsche's perceptions are conveyed here with exceptional lucidity. I read this book nearly twenty years ago and still recall passages from it. This is philosophy you can get your teeth into.
