This book is a comprehensive collection of Freidrich's thought, presented as unfinished thoughts and ideas. Nietzsche made a name for himself through creating rock-hard, crystal clear aphorisms. This work, however, represents an assemblage of so many "lumps of coal". For those wanting to witness the genesis process of true genius, this work is invaluable. Also, it is more understandable for the layman than his somewhat obscure poetry (Zarathustra).

nietzsche's 'will to power' is an excellent book, because not only does it offer tons of exclusive material, but its an excellent primer to familiarize yourself with nietzsche and his philosophy. it was the first book i got from him, excellent excellent read. i reccomend it to anyone interested in philosophy or someone who wants to try and understand philosophy. 'the will to power' is in my opinion, the least vague book nietzsche has written, in each essay, he is usually directly on topic, and will get to the point very quickly. which in some of his other works, his central ideas are masked by pages of sometimes irrelevant material. nonetheless, nietzsche was genius.

This book contains a huge amount fo unpublished material form Nietzsche's notebooks. Not only do the passages outline Nietzsche's basic philosophy, but it also contains passages that build upon it -- many passages that Nietzsche never got to publish.
