Bhagavad-gita As It Is by A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada is a welcome edition from many points of view. It can serve as a valuable textbook for the college student. It allows us to listen to a skilled interpreter explicating a text which has profound religious meaning… I think there will be little disagreement about the quality of the Swami’s Sanskrit scholarship… And, finally, for the non-specialist, there is readable English and a devotional attitude which cannot help but move the sensitive reader.

The increasing numbers of Western readers interested in classical Vedic thought have been done a service by Swami Bhaktivedanta. By bringing us a new and living interpretation of a text already known to many, he has increased our understanding manyfold.
