Please don't consider this SPAM. I have the old Pali Text Society version - which I enjoy in the "Open to any page and read" method.

Numerical Discourses of the Buddha [New Edition]
A Translation of the Anguttara Nikaya http://www.wisdom-books.com/ProductDeta ... S_Jun_2012

Due September 2012. This is a full new translation of the Anguttara Nikaya by Bhikkhu Bodhi, which was previously only available in an abridged version. This is the fourth collection of the Buddha's discourses or suttas (sutras) in the Pali Canon.

The Anguttara arranges the Buddha's discourses in accordance with a numerical scheme that promotes retention and easy comprehension. The primary focus of the Anguttara Nikaya is practice, which it treats from a wide-angle perspective, advancing from basic ethical observances, through the pillars of mental training, to the highest meditative attainments. The Anguttara is also distinguished among the four Nikayas by its interest in types of persons, which it describes in detail, often with stunning similes.
