Staggering ### read it at 19 when I was in the military in the middle east and my life was different from then on. We are all one :-) :-) 420

The writing is not very well organized, the last two sections don't fit in too well with the rest of the work, and are themselves even more disorganized than the rest. The lightning flash insights and expressions, thunderous pronouncements, and fresh angles on old topics, make this an extraordinary read and provokes much thought.

Nietzsche had too many creative writing classes and makes it difficult to get at the arguments he's presenting. Get past that and this is his best work. Themes I liked were problems with truth and knowledge structures when the previous narrative is no longer sufficient. Fun to read as if were a postmodern work or as stuffy British analytic epistemology. Also great to use to write book reviews and pretend you know what you're talking about.
