I have read several translations of the Gita in English-from Sir Edwin Arnold's to Annie Besnat's,to Gandhiji's,Vinobhaji and Radhakrishnan's and some others also...I find the exposition of Swami Ranganathananda in many respects unique:it is both down to earth and fascinatingly erudite.In explaining every shloka Swamiji relates it's real connotation and significance to not only What Adis Shankara said in his introduction to the Gita or how Sri Ramakrishna and Swami Vivekananda interpreted in terms of Practical Vedanta but also how it conforms to the thinking of some of the Great philosophers like Socrates,Plato and Aristotle,Swamiji takes you,while expalining the depth and intricasies of Sri Krishna's teachingsmon an enlightening voyage of discovery,where you meet Buddha,Mahavira,Tao,Christ and most of the thinkers in the West and relates their thoughts by an ingenious interactionwith the message of Sri Krishna.Even the greatest scientists like Einstein or famous neurologists like Sir Charles Sherington and poets like Wordsaworth and Shelley and Philosophers like Julian Huxley and bertrand Russell are brought in by Swamiji to give us an indepth understanding of the real meaning of the real meaning of these shlokas.Swamiji weaves every Shloka into the requirements of modern life and throws light on how man should lead his life while involved in nhis daily chores or business deals or academic pursuits and fulfil his duties in accordance with the philosphy of action taught by Sri Krishna ,which is a marvel of the elevation itself. --Dr.Rafiq Zakaria/Muslim Scholar of Mumbai
