it was amazing

On the translation: I like this for Urgunge Onon's notes and material fore and aft. Certainly better annotated than the Cleaves (who meant to put his notes into a second volume that never saw the light of day). Maybe this version is the best of both worlds: not off-putting for non-scholars, but with Urgunge's knowledge on Mongol lifestyle and culture.
