Friedrich Nietzsche was a German philosopher, poet and cultural critic. He is best known for his controversial idea of "life affirmation" that challenged traditional morality and all doctrines. Born in 1844 outside Leipzig, Germany, his teachings inspired people in all walks of life, from dancers and poets to psychologists and social revolutionaries. Here you will find insights from his greatest works. "The School of Life" takes a great thinker and highlights those ideas most relevant to ordinary, everyday dilemmas. These books emphasize ways in which wise voices from the past have urgently important and inspiring things to tell us.

For the sort of book that this is, and for its stated purpose, its very good - hits the nail right on the head. The last chapter - homework - is a bit odd in that doesn't contain any questions; all of the questions that one ought ask oneself are in the main text. The main text is clearly written, but includes far to long quotations from various works.
