Talks on Gita by Vinoba Bhave is authors interpretation of Bhagwad Gita. This talks were delivered by author while in Yerawada Jail during 1932, and the original notes were in Marathi, which were then translated into different languages and made into a book. Its a nice book, with simple and easy language for everyones understanding.

If you want to know about the essence of the Gita from an action-oriented and spiritual viewpoint, this is a perfect one.
One Book. Many interpretations. And each interpretation different from the other in its own accord. Beauty is in the harmony amongst contradictions.

Of all the many interpretations, this book by the famed scholar, teacher, philosopher and social activist Vinoba Bhave (considered to be the spiritual successor of Mahatma Gandhi), came as a highly recommended one.
These talks were delivered in jail before ordinary individuals from different walks of life. It is not an academic treatise on the Gita.

I read in Gujarati and not English. One of the most inspiring book on Shree Bhagvad Gita.
Interpretation will suit to new generation, fast loving person who are looking for connection between work and spirituality.
My take home was importaence of Sawa Dharma, immortality of Atma

Fascinating, Talks on the Gita sheds light on the preeminent classical work on kshatradharma and salvation in the service of arms. More than just a metaphor, The Gita is a Way out of PTSD, in my experience.
