This wonderful little book is a must for anyone interested in philosophy, in particlar Hindu Dharma.
The Upanishads are regarded as the jewel of Hindu philosophy and it is not difficult to see why. The words are just as relevant today as when first spoken, and at the time had a strong influence on early Greek, Jewish and Christian thinkers.
The translation provided is very good and provides for thought-provoking and deep reading. I have re-read this on many occasions and it is just as interesting every time.
It is not a large book so is easy to carry. Buy this, you will not regret it!

I've read many translations of the Upanishads. this little book remains my favorite version of my favorite book.
For anyone familiar with Vedic literature/knowledge who hasn't read the Upanishads, this is the best book to start with.
For anyone who has read the Upanishads, you are missing out if you haven't read this little gem.

This is very short but I agree with the other reviewers, the translation is excellent. If you are new to this, then this version is a good introduction.
