I think the information over at Answers.Com will provide you with a
very good introductory perception on Friedrich Nietzsche:

"...German philosopher who reasoned that Christianity's emphasis on
the afterlife makes its believers less able to cope with earthly life.
He argued that the ideal human, the Übermensch, would be able to
channel passions creatively instead of suppressing them. His written
works include Beyond Good and Evil (1886) and Thus Spake Zarathustra

Another source of interest:
"Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900)Born the son of a Lutheran pastor in
Röcken, Saxony, Friedrich Nietzsche was raised by female relatives
after his father's death in 1849. He quickly abandoned his initial
pursuit of theology in order to specialize in philology at Bonn and
Leipzig, where he studied with Friedrich Ritschl..."

There is no greater resource for knowledge than studying from books.
Here you can find 3 books relating to Friedrich Nietzsche on

"Nietzsche: Philosopher, Psychologist, Antichrist" by Walter A. Kaufmann

"What Nietzsche Really Said " by Robert C. Solomon, Kathleen M. Higgins

"Living With Nietzsche: What the Great "Immoralist" Has to Teach Us"

A History of Western Philosophy by Bertrand Russell is a good investment.
