The Times Biography of the Year Longlisted for the Rathbones Folio Prize 2019 'A strikingly original portrait of Nietzsche and beautifully written.' Antony Beevor 'Outstanding.' The Sunday Times 'A revelation.' Guardian 'Riveting.' New Statesman 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.
