Focused & Fearless

Would someone be so kind as to give me some background on this book:

I'm practicing Vipassana, is this book recommended?

Thanks all

This book is about the cultivation of jhanas and how to use the power of deep samadhi to gain insight. It is really good. But if you are taking a (dry) vipassana approach, it might not be the best book for you. I do not know what your practice is, but there comes a point when it's best to stick with one practice for a while and see where that gets you.
Let it come. Let it be. Let it go.

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

- Ud 3.5
