A possibility for your on-deck reading pile: Radical Acceptance, by Tara Brach. A favorite in the genre for some. I could summarize, but I’ll radically accept the job done by Publishers Weekly and posted on Amazon:
Brach offers readers a rich compendium of stories and techniques designed to help people awaken from what she calls “the trance of unworthiness.” The sense of self-hatred and fearful isolation that afflicts so many people in the West can be transformed with the steady application of a loving attention infused with the insights of the Buddhist tradition, according to Brach.
