Praise for Get Over Yourself: Nietzsche For Our Times

'A positive and insightful reading of Nietzsche which applies his thinking in a most illuminating way to the confusions and superstitions of our times.' - Roger Scruton

'A must-read. Nietzsche is just the blowtorch we need for our snowflake culture.' - James Delingpole, columnist, The Spectator

'Brilliant! I never thought I'd thoroughly enjoy — let alone find inspirational and often funny — a book on Nietzsche.' - Ruth Dudley Edwards, writer and broadcaster

'A Must Read. Get Over Yourself: Nietzsche For Our Times by Patrick West. Absolutely brilliant. Thought-provoking, witty & challenging.' - Austin Williams, Director, Future Cities Project

"[West] asks Nietzsche to judge us. And it is an incredibly rewarding move… When it comes to examining Nietzsche in his own time, Get Over Yourself provides some much needed mythbusting." - Fraser Myers, Spiked

"A bracing exercise in imaginative philosophy, in which a cultural critic wonders what Nietzsche would have made of our narcissistic age.", The Tablet

"West performs a laudable task in highlighting a caustic Nietzschean corrective to today's melange of competing virulent and partisan beliefs and attitudes . At the same time, Get Over Yourself makes for a lively introduction for those who would like to go deeper into to Nietzsche’s often confounding and puzzling works." - Geoff Ward,

"[A] stimulating and challenging book… West's book is a lively introduction to someone whose writings, especially his notion of the 'will to power', have been so fatally misunderstood by a later German generation." - Francis Phillips, The Catholic Herald

Get Over Yourself, Nietzsche For Our Times is available at (★★★★½)  and (★★★★
