The collection is wonderful and amongst all the translations I've come across Walter Kaufmann's translations have always been my favorite.

My only complaint about the book is that it is selections from various works rather than the complete works. I've read in other Nietzsche translations and collections that Kaufmann did not originally give much care to these particular works and that may thus be why he only provided selections. With that in mind I'd recommend this book as a good overview or introduction to Nietzsche, however not the best version to buy if wanting to expand or review his complete works in more detail.
