This book is a must read for anyone who wants to get inspired to start meditation. Also if anyone is already practicing Vipassana/Anapana, would get benefited by getting more clarity about the technique.

The perfect inspiration to meditate.Webu Sayadaw's focus on Anapana is interesting and relevant even if you practice Vipassana meditation (As did U Ba Khin who is mentioned in the book). He is a true meditation master in the full sense of the word.
