Other books on the Shiva Sutras run into hundreds of pages, which are mostly commentary, since the 78 sutras themselves can be presented on four or five pages.
The commentaries contained herein are insightful and concise. Scholars may benefit from works containing more extensive commentaries, but those who wish to use the sutras as a meditative practice will find this book well-suited to that end.
A helpful Sanskrit spelling and pronunciation guide is included, and the sutras are printed in easy-to-read type, both in Devanagari and transliterated Sanskrit, with an English translation and brief commentary. Roger Worthington's work is a fine introduction to the Shiva Sutras, and any student of yoga and meditation would greatly benefit from its study.
