I have come across many interpretations of the Gita by many 'masters', but Swami Rama's version is one of the most profound versions I've come across. One of the verses in the Gita clearly states that for a self-realized soul, the Vedic knowledge is only as important as a pot of water, when there's a huge reservoir of infinite knowledge available all around. And Swami Rama can certainly be considered to be one such soul, and the quality of his writings speaks for itself.
I would also recommend "The Path of Fire and Light" for actual Yogic techniques that result in spiritual transformation. Also, another book I'd recommend is "Choosing a Path", that gives a very objective and non-judgemental assessment on the different ways of approaching the Infinite Spirit, just like different rivers merging into one vast open ocean.
This much thicker volume of the book gives plenty of context for the story of the Bhagavad Gita and Swami Rama seems as if he is personally teaching you the lessons within. Best of all, the story turns out to be a guide for living a joyful life -- that still holds true today. Swami Rama delivers the meaning of each short line in the Bhagavad Gita, expanding the meaning so that you can apply the lessons to your own life in a practical manner.
I have taken to reading a couple pages in the evening before bed and reflecting on them before going to sleep. This book is a joy to read!

This book was not in good shape because of wrinkles, torn edges and a thick dark line of dirt on the back cover. I would say the book was in poor shape. Read morePublished on September 7, 2012 by kr
