I didn't really dig this translation, finding it a bit dense; much too wordy for modern sensibilities. I especially found all the variations in the honorifics for the Buddha (Arhan, Bhagavan, Sugata) confusing. Red Pine's translation is probably very authentic and in keeping with the Sanskrit or whatever language he translated from, but reading it produced the same reaction in me as if I were trying to read the King James Bible.
