After spending a recent retreat with Ven. Analayo Bhikkhu at Spirit Rock on this subject, James offers his understanding of Ven. Analayo's explanation of the discourse and how it can be applied in our meditation practice. You can also go to (paste it in your browser) this link to hear Ven.

Nice talk! I agree with analayo, breath goes to background once body has been tranquilized.

Currently reading his Satipatthana Practice guide for the second time and just started his follow up satipatthana guide Perspectives. Can't wait for his Anapanasati practice guide to come out later This year. Bhikkhu Analayo is a treasure.

I recently saw Analayos book "Satipatthana meditaiton: A practice guide" at a local book shop. Has anyone read it before? Is it worth picking up?

I you wait for a while you will be able to download it from Bhikkhu Analyo's website:
https://www.buddhismuskunde.uni-hamburg ... alayo.html
He appears to enter into contracts that allow free distribution after a time.

Currently you can download (among many other interesting books and articles):
Satipaṭṭhāna, the Direct Path to Realization, Birmingham: Windhorse, 2003, 319 pages.
Perspectives on Satipaṭṭhāna, Cambridge: Windhorse, 2013.
Compassion and Emptiness in Early Buddhist Meditation, Cambridge: Windhorse, 2015.
Early Buddhist Meditation Studies, Barre: Barre Center for Buddhist Studies, 2017

The latter is a useful reference for "issues" about mindfulness, the gradual path, absorption (concentration) and the Brahmaviharas. He addresses issues such as whether insight and absorption are two paths or two aspects of the gradual path, whether the noble truths are a practice regime, whether one can practice insight while in jhana, whether the Brahamaviharas provide a complete path, and so on. Even if you disagree with his conclusions, the comprehensive references to Pali, Sanskrit, Chinese, and Tibetan discourses will be useful!

The best way to get a feel for his approach to meditation would be to actually try it for yourself.
