      This is actually the fifth chapter of a much larger work on Insight meditation and vipassana (Mahasi style), written by the great Burmese master MS, who initiated the vipassana 'noting' style of meditative analysis. It is straight-forward to read and gives very practical instructions and guidance on the actual practice.

      A reread on this book wouldn't hurt, even after having just finished it. Which also gives me reason to not take my evaluation too importantly or as definitive.
