2020 Book Review: The Will to Power by Friedrich Nietzsche

I have already reviewed one work by Nietzsche, you can find it here 2020 Book Review: Beyond Good and Evil by Friedrich Nietzsche. I also had to read a translation of this one, but I base this review not on the original text, but the translated version I own. This is a work that I understand is his last. It’s an interesting view on politics and why people gain power and what it does to them once they have it, control.

I’ve always found Nietzsche’s work interesting on how he challenges the status quo with his thinking. Most of the greatest minds did this, even if they faced execution over it. It’s intelligently written for the date that it was composed. This book may confirm some view points you’re already have or give you another to consider.I recommend it as I did the other one.


This review is a part of my 2020 yearlong self-challenge to read and review. I have reread some books to review them on my website, whereas I have read others for the first time. Check out Book Reviews and Recommendations to find other book reviews, book recommendations, and more information about the books I’m reading, have read, or are sharing.
