Disappointing. This is not a translation of Nagarjuna's Mulamadhyamakakarika. It is an oddly framed up 80 page widely ranging introduction with 50 pages of poems that Batchelor drafted. I don't think his Zen koan approach works for this text.
See: The philosophy of the middle way (Mulamadhyamakakarika) by Nagarjuna, English translation and annotation by David Kalupahana.
