Read full description of the books:
Once one has read through the body of Nietzsche's actual work there remains many, many interpretations and treatments, assuming the "actual work" is a good translation (always preferred Kaufmann's) and not a treatment itself. Most of them are dissapointingly sensational and twisted, or at best, just plain wrong. This is certainly not one of those. Of the books about the books, I wish I'd read this one first.
The largest contribution of this is its most credible depiction of Nietzsche's works, and Neitzsche's life as one in the same. One can't truly understand what the man is driving at unless they know the man - and she did. She had the advantage as being a woman of advanced learning and intellect as well as a relationship closer to N. as nearly anyone else. At least on par with a literal handful of others.
His consistent embrace of an idea and the subsequent destruction of it - while somehow keeping the trueness of it intact, of Zarathustra as N's alter-superego, and the context of many of his works is expanded upon with a learned hand through her.
I found it a very touching treatment by one of the few people who could have written it to be so.
I should also note that the first third of the book (pages viii to lxvi) is actually an introduction by the editor/translator Siegfried Mandel, an expert on the subject in his own right. This section is extremely interesting as it illuminates the relationship between Lou and N. along with the cast of characters with wich they were mutually involved. I believe there to be new and credible information in that preface for those interested in N's biography (and, if one seeks to understand his philosophy, knowing the biography is critical).

Read information about the authorLou Andreas-Salomé (née Louise von Salomé or Luíza Gustavovna Salomé) was born in St. Petersburg, Russia to parents of French Huguenot and northern German descent. Her diverse intellectual interests led to friendships with an astounding array of luminaries, including Nietzsche, Wagner, Freud, and Rilke.
Andreas-Salomé was a prolific author, writing several plays, essays and more than a dozen novels. It was Andreas-Salome who began calling Rilke "Rainer" instead of "René." Her Hymn to Life so deeply impressed Nietzsche that he was moved to set it to music. She was one of the first female psychoanalysts (a career she maintained until a year before her death) and also one of the first women to write on female sexuality. Her book, Lebensrückblick, written toward the end of her life, is based on her memories as a liberated woman.
