'The Arahat' -  a little ambitious perhaps?

Just read the e book from Amazon, still chewing it over. A few quick comments, it's very much a personal idiosyncratic account, heavy on technique, he does not go into the Jhanas as much as I expected. Could be inspiring for many in the sense : " you can do it too, in this life if you practice hard enough". There is something of the meditation junkie there too. for my taste a little too much immaturity as a human being and too much of  "me" . Not dismissing it outright. I did not return it as I Do with rubbishy ebooks. The Aharat claim is a little silly. Worth a read ? Yes.

Daniel has updated Mastering the Core Teachings of the Buddha with a second edition. It's also available for free on his website:

https://www.mctb.org/

I read it recently and found some of the "map" information (listing various states, the order they usually occur in, etc.) very helpful. He also has a thorough discussion of the Pit of the Abyss ("Dark Night" in Western traditions) and skillful ways of managing those states.
