Looks like an interesting book but the author is Jake H. Davis, not Steve Armstrong...

But some years ago I got The Manuals of Dhamma pub. by Vipassana Research Inst. The first chapter of 30 pages or so is titled "The Manual of Insight", trans. by U Nyana. I guess this chapter might be a condensation or a separate work on the same subject or ...???
If anyone knows about this 'chapter' vs the Wisdom big book, it would clarify for me.

The sense of eye-sight, or in other words, the eye-sensitivity called Cakkhupasāda also really exists and is actually present.
