Publisher's Summary

Was he simply a depressed atheist, or was he a genius philosopher?  

Friedrich Nietzsche’s influence on the world of philosophy has undoubtedly been impressive. So what are we to think of this German thinker? Is his look on life and the universe truly negative? Or was he just misunderstood? 

What does it take to get to the deep meaning of his words? Did he see something beyond what the simple-minded perceive? 

His book Der Wille zur Macht ("The Will to Power") refers to what Nietzsche most likely thought to be the driving force in human beings, namely accomplishment, ambition, and trying to become the highest out there. 

He was on to something, wasn’t he? Aren’t we all trying to become more in life? 

His theory on nihilism raises questions, too: Is there an order to things, or do we just make that up to feed our convictions? 

It makes you wonder, doesn’t it? 

With all the reasoning and rationalist thinkers, is nihilism the theory that counters this? 

And what to think of his views on Christianity, alcoholism, existentialism, and the Übermensch? Are we going to stick with Descartes’ evidence that he exists because he thinks, or is a nihilist theory like that of Nietzsche’s more plausible? In other words, does he not exist? 

Hear more about the answers to these questions and others in this brief but powerful guide to Nietzsche’s life, theories, works, and prominent quotes.

Good job!

Great book, Ferdinand. I have always been interested in philosophy, and Nietzsche is one of the great philosophers.

He was a genius

This philosopher had some psychological issues but he was a thinker, a real genius. I liked this 1.5 hour-long book about him.

Very confronting

You think about the things that Nietzsche thought about that he pondered, and it brings about a lot of self reflection.

25-cent tour of nihilism

a tour of nihilism we're thinking but it was short. I enjoyed Nikki's affirmations at the end of the book.

Funniest book I’ve read on here

This book had me cracking up, I was expecting a dense dive into nihilism, what I got was an over view, counter balanced points, and a colorful history lesson. I had no idea Nietzsche had such a unique life, learning about the end of his life was shocking and learning about all points of nihilism was fascinating and well delivered.

Nihilism

The nihilism movement was made big by Nietzsche. He was a great philosopher. This book honors him.

very clear

it was great. I particularly liked the way you got a history of the guy him self first and then delved into his ideas topped off with his quotes with detailed explanations of what they actually mean. really helpful for me as I can get confused about what the hell was being said at points but it got cleared up right away.

Nietzsche knew

He knew a lot about the vain existence in which we live, the super human concept, perfectionism, and other things.
