"I have disagreed with Cohen on a number of points—in, I hope, a conversational rather than querulous spirit. Let me end, however, by re-emphasising that this is an important book
, thoughtful, clearly (that is, honestly) written, and utterly sound on the precedence of the published texts over the Nachlass, as well as on the need to periodize Nietzsche's path of thinking." --Notre Dame Philosophy Reviews, July 23, 2010
"...this book will prove to be a net gain for Nietzche's readers far and wide." --Philosophy in Review, Vol. 31, No. 1, 2011
"[An] extremely well-written and deftly constructed study... and overall is a most welcome addition to the literature on Nietzsche." --Journal of Nietzsche Studies
