Friedrich Nietzsche's work rocked the foundation of Western thinking and continues to permeate our culture, high and low - yet he is one of history's most misunderstood philosophers. Sue Prideaux's myth-shattering book brings readers into the world of a brilliant, eccentric and deeply troubled man, illuminating the events and people that shaped his life and work. I Am Dynamite! is the essential biography for anyone seeking to understand Nietzsche, the philosopher who foresaw - and sought solutions to - our own troubled times.

Review:

Dense, complex and hilarious . . . Such a blast to read. -- Hugo Rifkind, The Times

Engrossing, intelligent, moving, often downright funny, and filled with insights and sharply observed details from an extraordinary life. -- Sarah Bakewell

Hilarious, tragic, camp, farcical, ripe . . . Reveals how extraordinary philosophical ideas emerged from an extraordinary - and extraordinarily flawed - life., Sunday Times Books of the Year

A wonderfully gripping new biography . . . the type you stay in bed all Sunday just to finish., Irish Times

Excellently researched and compulsively readable . . . Deeply enjoyable and enlightening., Spectator

A troubled, troubling man is brought brilliantly to life. -- Tom Holland, New Statesman Books of the Year

Sue Prideaux's Nietzsche is a compelling, vulnerable and poignant figure; this biography is the liveliest and freshest account for a long time of one of the most overwhelming intellectual presences in the mind of modern Europe. -- Dr Rowan Williams
