It is hard to get into but once you get with the flow of it, it is magnificent. The language is full of wit and irony that will amuse and enlighten the reader. It does have sentences that are a paragraph long but they are wonderful. Just flow with it and do not try to analyze and you are in for the ride of your life. It is like a roller coaster ride with the slow lead up to some excitingly fantastic literary thrills and jolts. The use of language...hard to believe it is a translation...resonates with truth, humor and hilarious realism that is more profound today than it could have been when written over a hundred years ago. I find it delightful to just pick up and read a chapter at a time. It is too much for a straight through read but one cannot say on the roller coaster for too long either. A real intellectual pleasure.

This is an excellent version of Nietsche's book, expanding on his earlier works and characterizing his fellow philosophers as blindly accepting a single religious set of moral definitions that constrain their viewpoints. His text encourages critical consideration in the place of blind acceptance and also discusses issues with the Germanic anti-Semitism that influenced many Europeans.
