Após dez anos de isolamento na montanha, Zaratustra decide voltar ao convívio dos homens, a fim de passar adiante o fruto de sua contemplação e anunciar a vinda do Übermensch, ou super-homem. A tarefa do profeta, contudo, será tortuosa, pois poucos são os eleitos e muitos os seus inimigos. Assim falou Zaratustra é um romance filosófico em que Nietzsche toma o nome do sábio persa criador do Zoroastrismo para esmiuçar algumas das questões fundamentais de sua obra, tais como a autossuperação e a necessidade de se libertar de qualquer força que iniba ou limite a vida e a vontade do indivíduo. Nietzsche é tão influente como controverso. Sua crítica à moral e aos valores judaico-cristãos ― um dos aspectos mais marcantes de sua obra ― não raro desperta a hostilidade de leitores e estudiosos. Contudo, suas contribuições marcaram o pensamento ocidental e são leitura obrigatória para qualquer interessado em filosofia.
Desarrolla los cuatro grandes temas que integran el legado del filósofo persa, mediante una trama de elementos narrativos, conceptuales y líricos: el superhombre, la muerte de Dios, la voluntad de poder y el eterno retorno de lo idéntico.

First off, Nietzsche is not a Nazi. He doesn't share Nazi ideas and most likely would have hated the Nazis. There is a Nazi connection to this book, but it has nothing to do with Nietzsche or his writing. His horrible sister, who was a Nazi, rewrote a few of his text to make it look like her brother supported her goals. The Nazi's read this book for moral reason, but at the same time they misread his ideas. There are several articles and books that go deeper into this part of Nietzsche's life that explain things better than me. I'm only bringing this up first because I see people still misread this book today thinking it's pro-Nazi or something similar to that. It's not! Don't be afraid to read this book.
Nobody ever told me how well Nietzsche wrote. I read bits and pieces of him in college, but not full text. Wasn't aware this book is kind written like a long poem. It's both beautiful and haunting at the same time. I can of compare this to an anti-Bible or an anti-self-help book. I just finished read the whole Bible last year and didn't care for it honestly, but it was an important read, but I found this book similar in the writing style and more effective.
On a personal note, I've been having issues with religion lately. I use to think I was Christian/Protestant. Last year kind of had a realization that maybe I'm not as religious as I thought. I'm not sure I'd label myself atheist or agnostic, I don't really like labels, but I tend to agree with them more. Reading this book was just what I need for now. I'll admit reading Marquis de Sade, George Eliot, and René Descartes made me shift, but was having a hard time mentally coping with the idea that it's okay to question and even not believe. Reading books like these now are much easier for me than in the past.
Maybe God really is truly dead for me?
"I could not believe in a God who does not dance." Nietzsche couldn't have been THAT crazy...
This book changed the way I think about the world. Some ideas were hard to grasp at first, but after some thought turned out to be very reasonable. A must-read for everybody who is looking for possibilities to expand his mind.
