Ecce Homo was Nietzsche¿s last book he ever wrote about two months before his mental collapse. This has lead some scholars to believe he was crazy when he wrote it and in light of his chapter headings: ¿Why I am so Wise,¿ ¿Why I am so Clever,¿ etc. Against the assumption that Nietzsche was not crazy when he wrote Ecce Homo Steinbuch's book serves as a critical textual analysis on Nietzsche's first chapter heading "Why I am so Wise." It is well written and researched and claims the key to understanding Nietzsche is in this first chapter heading, "Why I am so Wise" in his Ecce Homo. Steinbuch provides an excellent and detailed commentary for a better understanding of Nietzsche. He also does justice to the thesis of his book, as well as to Nietzsche himself. Nietzsche was far from being crazy when he wrote his last will and testament - Ecce Homo - that he offered to the world.
