Which edition of the Bhagvad Gita should a newcomer to the faith read first? I have acquired both the A.C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada version (which is very complicatedly designed) and the Shri Purohit Swami edition.

Is the Purohit edition very flawed? Can I start with this and continue with Prabhupada version?

The Purohit's version is written like a regular text, while Prabhupada's has
1. The original text 2. The translation 3. An explanation. I just feel it would be easier to read the entire text first, THEN read the commentary... It gets very confusing otherwise...
