Heavily critical not only of Christian values but also of their modern replacements, Thus Spoke Zarathustra argues for a new value-system based around the prophecy of the Ubermensch, or Superman. Its appropriation by the National Socialist movement in Germany early in the 20th century has tainted its reputation unjustly; but there are signs that the rehabilitation of Nietzsche, and of this, his most incendiary work, is almost complete.
The translation used in this audiobook is that of Thomas Common.

Not the best translation
It's a shame the producers of this audiobook used the outdated and often misleading translation of Thomas Common. If you want a more authentic version, either read the original German or find Walter Kaufmann's translation--considered the most thorough and definitive rendering of this classic text.

OK, it's not _sneakily_ abridged
After my initial anger at discovering this audiobook was an abridgement, I noticed it says so clearly in the description. My mistake, not Audible's.
