Summary Idiosyncratic and aphoristic, Nietzsche is always bracing and provocative, and temptingly easy to dip into. The author's readable introduction to the philosopher's life and work examines the numerous ambiguities inherent in his writings. It also explodes the many misconceptions fostered in the hundred years since Nietzsche wrote, prophetically: "Do not, above all, confound me with what I am not!"
