“This is a significant and substantive edition, in that nothing has been taken for granted, everything has been opened to reconsideration. The commentary is exceptionally detailed and attentive to questions of language and meaning.” ―Shakespeare Quarterly

As always, of course, the Arden edition is lovely, and the copious notes are tremendously helpful - especially in a play such as this, where so many of the jokes come from plays on words and phrasings which fell out of use centuries ago.
The play itself isn't one of Shakespeare's greatest, but is still a good play. And it's free, so give it a try - you might like it.
