English annotation by Vishnudut1926: I strongly recommend this edition for 2 reasons: 

1. The research by Richard Barz is based on his real experience of living among bhaktas of Shree Vallabha-Vaishnava-Sampradaya (also known as Pushti-Marg Vaishnava Sampradaya). 

2. The edition contains English translations of Vartas - the key stories of Shree Vallabha-Sampradaya. Nowadays, you can easily find Vartas in Gujarati and Hindi, but the English translations are still very, very rare!

If you are searching for the surveys of similar range (with live experience and etc.), then "THE SRI KRSNA TEMPLE AT UDUPI" by B.N. Hebbar can be recommended, you can find the pdf-scan in my E-Library too - http://vishnudut1926.blogspot.ru/2017/10/the-sri-krsna-temple-at-udupi-by-bn_20.html
