Beyond Good and Evil: Prelude to a Philosophy of the Future by Translator:- Walter Kaufmann Friedrich NietzscheFrom reading this, I would never guessed how influential Nietzsche is. Perhaps I need some sort of background on 19th century philosophers but really I think the work ought to stand on its own. I found this slow going. Some ideas I agreed with and some I disagreed with. Many ideas didnt seem well developed and simply seemed to be dashed off.

An excellent translation of what I would recommend to a first time Nietzsche reader. The book is organized into aphorisms by Nietzsche, in sections that cover his main ideas and develop them. A great read to dispell the myth that Nietzsche is a nihilist. Nietzsche's sentences can grow a bit long and difficult to follow, but overall an easy read for those new to existentialism, or new to philosophy in general. Kaufmann also includes translation notes to further increase comprehension of what Nietzsche means to communicate. More information about text formats.
