Many times I've had this book recommended to me. I'm thinking about trying to read it over the Christmas holiday. Does anyone have a recommendation of a particular edition/translator?

Here's a few links to editions that I could find here in Goodreads. I'd appreciate some input on whether there is any significance to this choice.

Also, here's a reading guide from Michael Haykin. Does anyone else have a reading guide or recommended sections?

I have The Modern Library edition of the Marcus Dods translation and found it to be quite excellent. Very good footnotes as well. You can also find the Dods translation on the CCEL website.
