I have read about a half dozen translations of the Yoga Sutras by Patanjali, and this is my overall favorite of those. There is extensive discussion of various aspects of yoga psychology in the preliminary chapters, along with outlining Samkhya philosophy, which is the original philosophical foundation of the Yoga Sutras, though the Sutras are widely incorporated in to many paths and points of view, such as Tantra and Advaita Vedanta. This version does include a strong 'nondual' flavor as well. I especially appreciated his personal preference for including an emphasis on nada yoga (the practice of meditation on subtle, internal, naturally arising sounds), as a main practice discussed in the book. Also this is clearly a translation and discussion by an accomplished practitioner.
The Yoga Sutras are such an important book in Indian/Hindu spirituality that, for anyone interested in meditation and spiritual practice, it is a must read. Pandit Arya, who did a profound translation of the first of the four 'books' or sections that make up the Yoga Sutras, wrote in his introduction that if all of Indian culture were to disappear except for the Yoga Sutras, then, through the of intuitive realization and creativity the Yoga Sutras empowers, all of the greatness of their culture would re-emerge (and then some!). Often even great masters continue to study the Yoga Sutras, as they are a profound owners manual to practice and the vastness of spiritual development.
Though no translation and commentary can fully explore the richness of the Yoga Sutras, this one is a fine contribution.

An erudide examination of the pannani's treatise on the transformation of mind; a fresh scientific look at the most ancient technology for improving, transcending, expanding your mind out into sat chit ananda; overcoming death by attaining samadhi, the death trance, the truth(sam) a(of) dhi(God). God is the phenomenon of death and we can embrace and transcend the transition, stomp around like elephants, or pretend like we don't really know, play peek-a-boo if that is meaningful to you.

This is an excellent translation of the Raja Yoga manual translated by Dr. Mishras. To be fair, this is the only translation of Patanjali that I have read.
