Bryant is the author of The Quest for the Origins of Vedic Culture (Oxford University Press, 2001). J. P. Mallory commented on this book: "Edwin Bryant's The Quest for the Origins of Vedic Culture ... systematically exposes the logical weaknesses of most of the arguments that support the consensus of either side. This is not only an important work in the field of Indo-Aryan studies but a long overdue challenge for scholarly fair play." In 2007 Bryant completed a translation of the Yoga Sutras and their traditional commentaries. The translation was published in 2009 by North Point Press as The Yoga S?tras of Pata˝jali (with Insights from the Traditional Commentators).
