Unlike many other philosophers considered belonging to the 'western canon', Nietzsche takes great pleasure in shrouding his ideas in so much irony so as to make his true philosophical leanings almost indiscernible to the casual reader (unless, of course, you are willing to sit and labour over each aphorism for an hour). The penguin classics edition of this text muddies the water of Nietzsche's meaning even further by providing one of the most verbose and wordy translations of an already assuredly verbose author; be warned, casual reader! 'Beyond Good & Evil' is not an easy book to read, and it's an even less simple one to truly comprehend the exhaustive meaning of -- but it still functions as by far the most accessible of Nietzsche's writings, for the uninitiated. As for his ideas, I'm not a huge fan myself (he has a habit of relying all too heavily on ad hominem to get his 'points' across) but still, as one of the world's greatest thinkers (and an insatiable wit to match), Nietzsche's writing is, and always will be, undeniably worth reading -- even if just for Nietzsche's devilishly cynical sense of humour.

Great little item to add to the collection. Book is a compact hardcover, which obviously means making it a page turner isn’t the easiest task, but I am thrilled to own this copy. I like the design and feel of the book. Probably not the copy I’ll use to read daily. And obviously, we know the content is well worth the read.

It's one of the hardest books I have ever attempted ...Reviewed in India on 1 August 2017
It's one of the hardest books I have ever attempted to read. Each Aphorism requires multiple readings. Either that or I am just too thick headed for the ideas and the language in the book. But if you are looking for some intellectual stimulation this book checks all the right ones.

A deep understanding of the world we live in.Reviewed in India on 25 January 2019
The knowledge contained in this book will change the way you look at the world. It is a deep understanding of morality, what we perceive as good and evil and how everything changes in time, it is a philosophical take on society and the world that we live in,hownit has been and how it will always be. This knowledge is timeless. I have come across very few works of this caliber. It is one of those books that leave you a lot smarter and more knowledgeable after. Brilliant! A must read!

It changed Western philosophical thinking.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 29 March 2018
A well produced, reader-friendly edition of a work I hadn't read since I was an undergraduate in the early 1960s. Thought provoking and wryly witty stuff. Great fun. It changed Western philosophical thinking and is still worth delving into.

Perfect!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 June 2019
Nietzsche was by far the most concise and realistic philosopher. The read is smooth and continuously enlightening. I can recommend to all.
