I skipped straight to the sections on Iddhipādā and Sammappadhānā, 6.1 and 6.2.

There's a download link at the bottom of the wordpress page. The link text is 'First digital PDF edition, May 2019.'

EDIT: here is the link.

Yes chapter 6 is my favorite too. I also liked 2.2 Self-Stimulation (Bhava-Tanhā) and 2.3 Depression (Vibhava-Tanhā). and chpter 5 about meditation and 5.4 Self-Awareness (Sati & Pañña). I didn't skip! :)
