Publisher's Summary

About life, the wisest men of all ages have come to the same conclusion: it is no good. Always and everywhere one has heard the same sound from their mouths - a sound full of doubt, full of melancholy, full of weariness of life, full of resistance to life. Even Socrates said, as he died: "To live - that means to be sick a long time. I owe Asclepius the savior a rooster." Even Socrates was tired of life.

typical Nietzsche

This is one of Nietzsche's easier works to understand. it is only three hours long. That being said, it is digestible and interesting. Many more thoughts on government and culture, education and degeneracy than his other works.

The reading is pretty good, but he calls Wagner "wag-ner" when really it is German, pronounced "vog-ner".
