Easy to read, well-thought-out introduction and translation by a scholarly, accomplished author/translator. It is very important to read the Introduction first to appreciate Chanakaya's (approx. 321-275 BC) wisdom all the more. It contains information that may be hard to find elsewhere in the English language. The author/translator has done quite an in-depth analysis of Chanakya, giving the reader an excellent idea of the social, political, and philosophical context of the Chanakya thought.

The maxims are from Chanakyasutras, Chanakyanitidarpana, and Arthasastra.

As for the text, a serious reader can read maxim by maxim, or one can flip any page to select one. No matter what page one happens to glance through, it is full of wisdom! It is Chanakya, translated brilliantly! ( )
