The Bhagavad Gita by Winthrop Sargeant is probably one of the best translations and it fits into your pocket! That's the good part. Unfortunately, as soon as you open the book, all pages come apart. It is also a wonderful story about a discussion between a figure who is a human incarnation of God, and his disciple and friend. I have read 5 different translations of this classic work, and this one is the best, most readable to my western mind.
The Bhagavad Gita is the title of Winthrop Sargeant's translation, first published in 1979, of the Bhagavad Gītā (Sanskrit: भगवद्गीता, "Song of God"), an important Hindu scripture. Among Western English translations of the Gita, Sargeant's is unusual in providing a word-by-word translation and grammatical explanation, along with Sanskrit and English renderings.
