Explains the Gita and the concepts behind the text very well

This book is an excellent read. The author's command of the English language and his writing set the foundation for a good book. He builds on that by first explaining a number of concepts that are required to understand the Gita. Each chapter of the Gita is preceded by the author's explanation of what the chapter is about. Then the translation of the chapter follows. Mr Easwaran, the author, has a secular outlook and his broad perspective towards life is evident in his writing. I had read The Bhagwad Gita As It Is by Prabhupada, which I found very boring and was almost hard selling the words "Krishna consciousness. Mr Easwaran's words made learning some tough to grasp concepts a breeze. I highly recommend it.
