    Most accessible translation

    Though Steven Mitchell's translation is 'Zen'nish, it's still the most easily readable translation of TTC. So the best way to explore TTC is to start with Steven Mitchell. Then go for other translations.

    No one can ignore this translation ever. This has become part of the canon of TTC translations, and will always be counted, even by the critics.

    Terrific

    This book is good. Not hard cover but it will not disappoint you. Page quality gives you an ancient feel cause the pages are so brown. And the book is so light weighted unlike other same volume books. Let me include book has only quotes not descriptive.
    But the lines are too much inspiring. Easy English( with a dictionary 😂).
