    I highly recommend "Comfortable with uncertainty" by Pema Chodron. It a Buddhist book but can really apply to anyone. It has been a great comfort to me during the hardtimes. It is broken down into small chapters so it easy to read during the hard times when it is so difficult to focus.

    Thanks for the recommendation. I haven't read this book though I've read others of Pema Chodron's. She has a great, down-to-earth way of presenting Buddhist teachings about the mind as the real source of happiness in a way that is, as you say, very accessible and human. She doesn't speak like a remote Tibetan Buddhist nun but like someone who knows exactly what it's like to suffer and struggle in the world...
