This is just one of many good translations. It is a Catholic translation (i.e. w/imprimatur) and is the translation used at Mass in the dioceses of the United States. The New Revised Standard is another Catholic translation used at Mass in other English-speaking countries. The New Jerusalem Bible is also a recommended Catholic translation.
