  1. I used to think that if you were super intelligent you had it made. Life couldn't hurt you and everything would be peachy. Apparently not. The super intelligent ancient Greeks got lost in their logic and philosophy and apparently couldn't come back. I'll take my higher than average IQ and keep it. This is excellent but takes a lot of effort. Just as well it's short. Highly recommended.
  2. Self-celebrating and self-mocking autobiographical writings from Ecce Homo - translated as 'behold the man' - the last work iconoclastic German philosopher Nietzsche wrote before his descent into madness (from the Amazon description because I could not put it better myself). This is a Penguin Little Black Classics and is around 57 pages long. I thought I'd start with a short one to get a feel for Nietzsche before I read anything else. Of course it depends on the translator so I have now bought a book translated by the definitive translator Walter Kaufmann. I enjoyed this for what it was, a collection of writings, and as such it was somewhat disjointed but does give a flavour of the philosopher. It didn't put me off. I'd recommend this to someone who is willing to work for understanding, even although it's very short.
