I'm so much impressed with the style of author's presentation - first of all, authentic and engaging presentation.
I'd have read the introduction at least a couple of times. Having read several books on vedic philosophy, I think I can that rarely I find authentic and readable book like this one.
I first read the Yoga Sutras book by the same author that made me check out his other books also.

Professor Bryant is a brilliant scholar and this translation is just one of the concrete manifestations of his unique scholarly gifts. The introduction to the translated text is excellent and, as another reviewer says, worth the price of the book on its own. The Bhagavata Purana (especially the 10th book - translated here) embodies an immensely important tradition in Indic spirituality and should be read at least as much as some of the other classics of Indic traditions - like the Gita or the Upanishads (e.g.). Hopefully, through the ease of Professor Bryant's translation, the interesting features of the text itself and the translator's enlightening introduction, this edition of the text will allow the Bhagavata to become better known and better appreciated in the West.

A beautiful translation that brings the essence and background of Krishna available to everyone. It's definitely something that readers should look into. The delivery was very fast. I received this product from Amazon the day after I ordered.

This is a great translation of Canto 10 of the Srimad Bhagavatam, the biography of Krishna. This book is usually reserved for the devotees of Krishna. Thus its translators are primary persons in the lineages of teachers from India.

Here however there is clear English with no religious overtones and no attempt to make converts and indoctrinate the reader. This is a relief in the history of the translations of this part of the Srimad Bhagavatam.

It sells at a very reasonable price, considering the work involved in translating from Sanskrit into English! If you buy this and like it, please look at my Bhagavad Gita English* which is also free from missionary overtones.

For anyone interested in attaining the Supreme Divine Love of God, this is the crest jewel of knowledge. It transcends the Vedas. Reading about the divine Lilas or pastimes of Krishna soothes and inspires the heart and clears the mind. I purchased the ebook version and find it very convenient to refer to. It is translated into a very accessible style of English, so you don't have to wade through the archaic terms.

The introduction is fantastic. I've been teaching a world religions course for undergraduates for over 20 years, and I learned a tremendous amount from simply reading the introduction. The translation by Bryant is also very readable: smooth, not filled with too much modern day jargon to connect to contemporary readers but also not heavy on technical terms related to the time of composition and genre either.
