A rather short book (168 pages), but really good, and an easy read. It includes the translated Gathas (Hymns of Praise), as well as commentary. But the commentary is separated, so your read of the Gathas is uninterrupted. It also includes a nice introduction and history as to the social climate of the period. The footnotes are also good -- they notate parallels to the Vedas, special comments regarding specific translations (so you can make your own opinion to agree or disagree), and more. I found many parallels between Zoroaster and the others -- Christ, Buddha, Krishna, Muhammad. And this was written thousands of years earlier. We truly are all one with the One.
If you are interested in Zoroaster, ancient religions, or have an open mind towards all religions telling the same message and want to expand your knowledge and understanding, then this is a good book to read!
