Initially released in 1908, Mencken's study of Nietzsche, which was the first of its kind in English, was his second book. This reprint is based on the text of the 1913 third edition and includes a new introduction discussing the book's strengths and weaknesses and the characters of both the author and the subject as well as an updated layout to make it more reader-friendly.
