Main Question or Discussion Point

I want to read this book(in English) but I was told that this book is very hard to read.
I was wondering if there's an edition of this book with comments written by a scientist to make it easier to understand.

take a look at it. just do not expect to understand everything. be happy if you understand anything. hunt around until you find something you understand. even if you understand nothing, it will rattle around in your brain and someday it will burst open and enlighten you. go for it. then you will be giving, not asking for, advice.

you might consider going to st johns university where i believe they read this book and other classics, in class, with assistance from professors.
