This is an excellent value and a nice chanting book. Also included is Sri Vishnu Sahasra Namavali. As a westerner with just a little background in Sanskrit I found I could chant all of Vishnu Sahasranama in roughly 23 minutes. A great help in pronunciation was MS Subbhulaksmi's recording of Sri Vishnu Sahasranama which is available on mp3. Adi Sankara's commentary is summarized in the translation by Swami Tapasyananda, very succinct and easy to follow, not brain-scrambling high philosophy.
It is a literal translation, not an interpretation of the deeper meaning.
This is good book for someone looking for an easy initial translation of the Vishnu Sahasranamam. There is also a transliteration which makes it easy for people who cannot read the Devanagari script.

The translations are simple, often two to three lines but the meanings are clear. There is not a lot of time spent on the etymological or philosophical aspect of the namas. This is the reason I say it is a good beginners book. There are some sources (online and print) that have a more detailed description.

I think 3.5 stars is a good rating for the book.
