Thus Spoke Zarathustra
Nietzsche was one of the most revolutionary and subversive thinkers in Western philosophy, and Thus Spoke Zarathustra remains his most famous and influential work. It describes how the ancient Persian prophet Zarathustra descends from his solitude in the mountains to tell the world that God is dead and that the Superman, the human embodiment of divinity, is his successor. With blazing intensity and poetic brilliance, Nietzsche argues that the meaning of existence is not to be found in religiouspieties or meek submission, but in an all-powerful life force: passionate, chaotic & free.

Those who give this book less than five stars have not really understood what it is about. As somebody else said here: do your 9 to 5, stuff your face with food and die in several decades or years, you'll never be the best you are capable of. And if you object to this, the try to read this book until you understand.
