recommended Aristotle translation

Corrington suggests Aristotle's Metaphysics in a recent translation by Joe Sachs of St. John's College, Annapolis.  He mentions that it brings Aristotle down to earth for students and faculty alike, and seems to have a slightly Heideggarian reading--which he and I share.  For example, Sachs translates energeia as "being-at-work."  

Corrington also mentions that, "Aristotle will be ordinal and radically open to nature naturing--perhaps through ousia or phusis or dunamis.
