SOME EXCERPTS FROM REVIEWS OF THE BHAGAVAD-GITA (The Song of God )
A Wonderful Translation Appeared in amazon.com customer's book review section, September 1, 2000
"It's about time that we get a new translation of the Bhagavad Gita. The most popular version nowadays seems to be Swami Prabhupada's (ISKCON) version, but unfortunately, he seems to think he is god.
Dr. Prasad takes a much more low-key approach, simply translating the Gita to the best of his ability and allowing the reader to make sense of it rather than forcing his own opinions on others. Any time there is the possibility of confusion, Prasad defines his terms and goes to the extra effort to make sure that what Vyasa was trying to describe is clear to even ones not familiar with Indian/Eastern philosophy. More accurate than most other translations and rendered into modern prose, this makes an excellent place to start with if you're new to Eastern thought." Gsibbery, Baton Rouge, LA.
