My the Mind/Body counselor recommended by my PT recommended this book "Replace the word depression with any other problem" (ie chronic pain). Meditation is more of a prophylactic for depression rather than something that can be used during a depression so the title is a bit misleading. Anyway, it's a bit on the dry side, but a decent gathering of meditation techniques expunged of all Buddhism. I admire the effort to make available this information to those who are scared off by the religion in which meditation is usually embedded. I was familiar with most of the techniques, and I have a hard time listening to CDs of guided meditations, but there were new ideas there for me too.
