The Original Analects is a remarkable book that ranks among the most significant and impressive works on Chinese thought ever published in English. (Journal of Asian Studies)
With the publication of this translation, scholars now have a fully developed interpretation of a single text with which to test the Brooks' hypotheses. Undoubtedly we have not heard the last or even the definitive word on dating texts in early China. But the Brooks should be credited with pushing the field one great step further along in its development. (Pacific Affairs)
The most exciting study of the Lun yu yet published in a Western language. Its potential implications are monumental, ranging from a rewriting of our understanding of early Confucianism and the nature of intellectual transmission in early China. (Chinese Review International)
Its insightful readings and interpretive strategies stand to enrich our overall understanding of the Analects and its traditions. (Lisa Raphals International Studies in Philosophy)
This translation presents the Analects in a revolutionary new format that, for the first time in any language, distinguishes the original words of the Master from the later sayings of his disciples and their followers, enabling readers to experience China's most influential philosophical work in its true historical, social, and political context.

The bad: (1) this is a scholarly translation and is not for the casual reader (2) There isn't consistent inclusion of the original Chinese beside the translations and analyses, which I personally think would have greatly enhanced this book's value.
