Product Description:

Nietzsche was one of the most revolutionary and subversive thinkers in Western philosophy, and "Thus Spoke Zarathustra" remains his most famous and influential work. It describes how the ancient Persian prophet Zarathustra descends from his solitude in the mountains to tell the world that God is dead and that the Superman, the human embodiment of divinity, is his successor. With blazing intensity and poetic brilliance, Nietzsche argues that the meaning of existence is not to be found in religious pieties or meek submission, but in an all-powerful life force: passionate, chaotic & free.

Summary: Nietzsche was a great writer not a great philosopher!
Rating: 4

Zarathustra is a great book when you think about literature and not about philosophy. This book is the apex of what I call "psychopathy apology".
I used to be a fan of Nietzsche's philosophy, during many years I even tried to apply it to my personal life, but sooner that I could imagine, I noticed that I experienced some discomfort dealing with people around me, and why I felt like this, because I am not a psychopath. Psychopaths have a malfunction of brain's frontal cortex. One day reading a book about this kind of people I discovered that all the symptoms associated to psychopaths could be found in Nietzsche's philosophy. I adress only some questions to Nietzsches's apologists:
1-how could a man that was weak, short, had a extremely bad health, was rejected by the Germany Army because of his bad physical conditions, have written a book talking about being a "superman"?
2-he himself was a looser in the end, died in total misery, mad and unhappy mainly in love.
Would you really apply this man's philosophy to your personal life? Think about that, if it wasn't good to him why it would be good to you or to all humanity?
3-When his philosophy was applied by the greatest psychopath ever, we saw the most outrageous ideology ever called nazism.
This man was the greatest contradiction in world's history and people insist in transform his thinking in serious philosophy what is a huge mistake.
Is really funny, when I observed during all of my life some bad people acting according to Nietzsche's philosophy, and mainly applying the Ideas
of Zarathustra agaisnt other people, that these same people, even when they are ferocious Nietzsche's defenders felt absolutely revolted and considered those bad people 'bad characters". It is really funny, it is like to say, "apply Nietzsche's philosophy against other people, and not agaisnt me".
All normal men should finally recognize that Nietzsche was only a psychopath writing psychopathy apologies, he was a good writer and an extremely bad philosopher, it is simply impossible to defend his philosophy. If you think his philosophy is good, just expect till someone aplly it against you!
"Superman was nothing less than Nietzsche's alterego" the worst alterego ever thought! just because what have made humanity survive untill today is more our limitations than thinking that we are gods. What Nietzsche made of worst was replace one god by other, a null concept.

Summary: Kindle book is not the Kaufmann translation
Rating: 1

This was probably an honest mistake by Amazon's staff, but the cover image posted for this is for the Walter Kaufmann translation. Instead, the Kindle version is the Thomas Common version, which has been rejected for decades as a corrupt and inept representation of Nietzsche's thought. The Kaufmann translation is excellent; the Common translation for Kindle, however, is a sad mistake.

Summary: good for what it is....
Rating: 3

first: there is no info on what translation they used for this audio book! ALSO- BE FOREWARNED THAT THIS IS AN ABRIDGED VERSION! there is no explanation of what they left out or why in the notes.
i give it 3 stars only for how good it was read. the reader does an excellent job, and the "intro narration" is kept to a minimum. if only they had included all the text!!!!

Summary: Wonderful book
Rating: 5

Wonderful book, although Nietzche was as naive as hell. He understood everything about how to write a book but didn't understand his subject: Humans. Humans tend naturally to evil (Sorry :-( ) He intended for man to better himself but how? Have you ever read "Notes from Underground" written by Dostoyevski? That's the real human being driven by his own base instincts! For those of you who equal this book to Hitler and his nazis you are wrong! Nietzche intended a superhuman endowed with celestial qualities not a bunch of thugs and murderes as Hitler and his "friends" were. He, I'm certain, would be horrorized by what the nazis did and interpret and to what use they put his famous work. In my humble opinion, Nietzche didnñt live long enough to understand how vile humans can be.
