The author is an expert on Spinoza and then moved to Nietzsche as a professional study. He does an excellent job of placing Nietzsche's writings in the context of the events of Nietzsche's life. You get a feel for the development of his ideas resulting from his education, friendships, disappointments, and lost love.
The presentation of Nietzsche's philosophical writings is honest and friendly to Nietzsche's intent. The final 'Coda' of the book examines both the shortcomings of the ill-defined political agenda, which was misappropriated into the horrors of facist German nationalism, and the positive intentions of an equally ill-defined personal agenda, which wants us to destroy our metaphysical idols and live life in this world towards triumphal health.
I definitely recommend the book to anyone looking to read Nietzsche for the first time or to anyone looking for a good contextual review of his writings and life.
