Here's a book on a way to help OURSELVES by focusing on helping OTHERS.....some good points and stories, and a most amazing example set....
ME TO WE: TURNING SELF-HELP ON IT'S HEAD by Craig and Marc Kielburger
Four years have gone by.....wow!
I've always liked Derrick Jensen's book,A Language Older Than Words.
It's a powerful and thought-provoking book.
It's been a long time since anyone posted here, but I want to pass on the name of Therese Borchard and her book, Beyond Blue. It's an great book about depression and how she has come to deal with it. It's one of the few "depression books" that I have kept, because it is so honest and encouraging.
She also has a wonderful blog at http://blog.beliefnet.com/beyondblue
If anyone is out there....I hope you're doing ok...you have my support.
