The first complete English translation of Asanga's Mahayanasamgraha, the most important and comprehensive Indian Yogacara text, and all its available Indian commentaries.

The Mahāyānasaṃgraha, published here with its Indian and Tibetan commentaries in three volumes, presents virtually everything anybody might want to know about the Yogācāra School of mahāyāna Buddhism. It discusses in detail the nature and operation of the eight kinds of consciousness, the often-misunderstood notion of “mind only” ( cittamātra), dependent origination, the cultivation of the path and its fruition in terms of the four wisdoms, and the three bodies ( kāyas) of a buddha.

That has been available in English for a while now. See the BDK edition for instance: The Summary of the Great Vehicle.
the most important and comprehensive Indian Yogacara text
That would be the Yogacarabhumisastra, translated to English only partially.

I would agree; the Yogacarabhumisastra is easily the most important and comprehensive Yogacara text, according to reputation.

Thanks, I actually found out that it had been available after posting. To be clear, I did not originally write anything in this post other than the title - it is a direct copy/paste from the Amazon description. I suspect what they meant is that it's the first full translation of the text and the commentaries, at least that's what makes the most sense.
