An excellent and readable introduction,
This review is from: Nietzsche: Philosopher, Psychologist, Antichrist (Paperback)
Nietzsche's work is difficult and often lends itself to varying interpretation. As such, an overview is a great help in making headway toward understanding his writing.
This book is most likely the very best resource available for people who don't know much about Nietzsche but want to. Kaufmann's work is both readable and educational. You will be much better prepared to tackle Nietzsche's own writing after reading this overview than you would be without it.
