Thi is my first approach to the Gita or any sacred Indian text.
I feel that the translator makes a good job introducing each chapter, though the first chapters sometimes elongate the explanation beyond needed. What I recommend is to read it complete, take notes and then read just the chapters without the introductions for a more fluent understanding of the book.

Doesn't have the sanskrit parts like most Bhagavad Gita versions do, but it makes the read go fast and straight to the dialogues. It's a wonderful introduction to hindu texts and I highly recommend to those new to yoga.

I read The Bhagavad Gita many years ago as part of a religious studies course in college. Having traversed many paths since that time, the second time around held so much more depth and meaning. This is mandatory reading for anyone interested in the diversity of the world wisdom traditions. I do not feel that the narration and commentary included with this translation detract from the essence of this classic work.

This is a really good book on Gita. The Introduction chapter is excellent and really brings out the essence of Gita and Upanishad, in fact it gives so many new pointers. The rest of the book is good, the only comment/suggestion is to include the original Sanskrit verses as they are, because no translation can bring out the beauty of the Gita verses.

Very informative. One chapter explains the next chapter of the actual book. A good way to understand the book

Eknath has a unique ability to translate the essence of the Bhagavad teachings, excellent study tool for practitioners. It is one of the best translations that I have come across to date for westerners.

The introduction sheds much light on Hindu thought. Each "chapter" or verse is preceded by a clear explanation of what is meant by what Krishna and Arjuna say to each other. This is very helpful. Especially if you do not want to learn Sanskrit!

The best translation I've come across. Good read, informative and magical at the same time

The commentary from the author, preceding each chapter, is a bit excessive at times and I'm enjoying the read much more by skipping the commentary. It may be something of interest on the next read through.

Amazing read. Great tools to live a happier life. A bit hard to understand and grasp in the beginning, but if you have a background or an idea of the yoga sutras you will love this.
