I love this translation of the Qur'an/Koran. It's very clear and easy to understand in modern English and isn't bogged down in footnotes longer than the verses on the page. The font size is also good. I particularly love the index in the back that lists topics and gives verse numbers pertaining to that topic. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0976187000, Paperback)

The Qur'an is a complete and original compilation of the Final Revelation from God to mankind through the last Prophet, Muhammad, Peace be upon him. The Qur'an has essentially three qualities that make it universal. Firstly, it is a masterpiece of immense literary value. Secondly, though its message is a continuation of that contained in the earlier Revelations made to Abraham, Moses, David, and Jesus, yet this message has a sense of fulfillment and originality that atttracts toward it Jews, Christians, and Muslims alike. Finally, it has a wealth of information-both wordly wisdom and intellectual conceptions-which provides the code of life for mankind.
