'... Antoine Panaioti's Nietzsche and Buddhist Philosophy takes first place as the best book of my reading year. Beautifully written, a heroic feat of erudition, and an intimate and sympathetic reading of both Nietzsche and classical Buddhist philosophy, this book enacts the ideal whose contours it seeks to define and celebrate in its twin subjects - the ideal of great health that overcomes the despair of nihilism and celebrates the uncanniness of existence ...'
