I've got Leiter's On Morality, Solomon's Ethics of an Immoralist and Safranski's biography.

And a few others that are either very brief or not very good(Nietzsche, the Body and Culture??!!)

What are the foremost works regarding the writings and philosophy of Freidrich Nietzche?

Leiter's books is excellent btw.

This is the e-mail reply I received when asking this question to Brian Leiter:

"Among relatively recent work, I'd recommend Reginster's "The Affirmation of Life" and Janaway's "Beyond Selflessness," though you may want to look up my review of the Janaway book. But both those are interesting books, and worthwhile. If you get the Oxford Readings in Philosophy volume on Nietzsche edited by John Richardson and myself it includes a selective bibliography of particularly interesting articles and books."

Brian Leiter seems to know a thing or two about Nietzsche, I'm sure you can take his recommendations...

Peixes, aren't those books just copies of Nietzsche's original writings?
