One may like to read my free ebook «Bhagvad-Gita: Treatise of Self-help» in verses and or hear its rendition in the free audio book. 
But then you may like to know what's new about it that one isn't aware of it.
1. In it the beauty of the Sanskrit slokas is reflected in the rhythmic flow of the English verses of poetic proportions and the attendant philosophy of the song that is Bhagvad-Gita is captured in contemporary idiom for easy comprehension.
2. It is sans theological spins normally associated with most commentaries.
3. It's rid of 110 inane interpolations, such as chaaturvarnyam, which are inimical to its avowed philosophy and thus it comprises of only 590 +0 verses
3. The website of Great Book and Classics accorded pride of place to my version of the Gita among its English translations http://www.grtbooks.com/bhagavad.asp?idx=0&yr=-400&aa=AA&at=BH
I'm sure my version of the Gita would add to your philosophical perspective of Krishna's message to mankind.
