What are your thoughts of the book? I just bought it at Half Price Books today.
It's not about reciprocation, it's just all about me,
a sycophantic, prophetic, Socratic junkie wannabe.

It's a book by Frederich Nietzsche.

I never understand what he's talking about. The genealogy of morals? Greek to me. Thus spoke Zarathustra? Greek to me. The only book of his that I could actually understand without referencing secondary material was Antichrist.

I would strongly recommend reading it along with a commentary by a respected Nietzsche scholar.

As other people in this thread have noted, Nietzsche is highly stylistic and writes in a very literary fashion. His intention wasn't to write a clear philosophical treatise in the style of most of Western philosophy and his works are very difficult to understand in themselves and pretty much impossible to understand in relation to each other. So yeah I wouldnt advise making an unguided foray into the Nietzschean jungle.

This.

I'll suggest Ecco Homo to plunge yourself right in, or The Will to Power, a collection of his final works.
