    The translation is old and the language is quite antiquated. Makes a tough read that much harder. The notes at the end leave a lot to be desired. For instance his handling of Eternal Recurrence leaves out a huge ethical component if the doctrine in the way that it relates to the overman (superman). The end of the notes states that they are not in a final form, but since they are dated 1905 I doubt we will see them updated.
