Bhagavad-Gita As It Is by A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami PrabhupadaBhagavada Gita is a text when you read it in Sanskrit produces an effect that resonates somewhere deep in your heart. I know this because as a child I used to hear my grand father recite Gita as it is in Sanskrit (he knew it by heart), and that had some kind of celestial experience inside me.
It was a very big book which needed patience to finish. I read from cover to cover. Since I didnt know Sanskrit I had to depend on a translated version. The translation is said to be as it is, however, I found the translation very dry. This particular translation just couldnt make much impact, else its one of the greatest spiritual text of India. Regarding commentary, I never dared to touch it. It was too orthodox, for me.
Note: This rating represent only the quality of the translation and no the original content. The Bhagavad Gita according to Gandhi is a much better book. He was a selfless man who followed the teachings of Bhagavad Gita throughout his life. Gandhi has lived the words he had said. You can check his version here: Gita According to Gandhi

The 10 Most Popular Shlok of Bhagwad Gita
The Gita is set in a narrative framework of a dialogue between Pandava prince Arjuna and his guide and charioteer Krishna. At the start of the Dharma Yudhha righteous war between Pandavas and Kauravas , Arjuna is filled with moral dilemma and despair about the violence and death the war will cause. He wonders if he should renounce and seeks Krishna's counsel, whose answers and discourse constitute the Bhagadvad Gita. Krishna counsels Arjuna to "fulfill his Kshatriya warrior duty to uphold the Dharma " through "selfless action". The Bhagavad Gita presents a synthesis   of Hindu ideas about dharma ,    theistic bhakti ,   and the yogic ideals  of moksha. Numerous commentaries have been written on the Bhagavad Gita with widely differing views on the essentials. Vedanta commentators read varying relations between Self and Brahman in the text: Advaita Vedanta sees the non-dualism of Atman soul and Brahman as its essence,  whereas Bhedabheda and Vishishtadvaita see Atman and Brahman as both different and non-different, and Dvaita sees them as different.
It is common for some people to say that constant constructive action disturbs people from fully concentrating on the Lord and his many beautiful qualities. Therefore, all performance of any task or responsibility should be renounced as well. However, still, other people say that all actions except those done for sacrifice, self-harmony, or gift-giving, should be given up. Now My Dear Disciple, listen to Me as I disclose to you the true secret of surrendering and abandonment of materialism in this world. O Best of Men, there are three kinds of abandonment in this world that have been declared in this world by Me. Tasks which involve works of sacrifice, gift-giving, and self-improvement should never be abandoned and should always be performed.
