For the sake of brevity, I will say merely that this translation was entirely successful in its aim to vulgarize Nietzsche's stylistic idiosyncracies for the sake of mass consumption. This is a beautiful book, and deserves a more sympathetic treatment. R.J. Hollingdale's translation is the best, but even Walter Kaufmann's is preferable to this one. It DOES matter!

ALtough this isn't the best or most sophisticated work Nietzsche has to offer, it certainly is worth reading for anyone interested in his life and works. It is some kind of summary of everything he has said in his previous books. Christianity, morals, Kant.. it's all in here. His last attempt to show the world what it's all about, just before he went insane. My favorite part are the first couple of pages where statements can be found like "Is man just a mistake of God, or is God just a mistake of man?". Absolutely recommended for anyone whose interested in philosephy in general and Nietzsche particulary.

A nice cheap edition. Buy a critical edition or learn German though, if you want to read this in depth.
