Which one is recomended, the Thomas Cleary version or the William Scott Wilson version. What are the main differences?

Didn't see this before. I like the William Scott Wilson translation myself. But the Cleary one comes in a nice pocket size edition.

As for the main differences, they are just diffirent translator's so they each approach the text in their own way. I'd read the first ten pages of each and see which one 'speaks to you'.
