Required Reading for Life

Depression and spirituality aren’t the only topics I read about (though, admittedly, they’re my favorite). This blog just would not be complete without a list of all of the books I truly “heart”. And lots of them have helped me become a better, wiser person, too–even less depressed.

I’ve written full posts on some of the books, offering my notes and reactions. If the book title has a link, that’s where it heads to.

Of course, this list is a long one, so I’ve broken it down into sections and linked from this list to the actual book lists. Also know that I will update this list regularly since I’m always reading awesome new stuff.

Though these lists may seem overwhelmingly long, my promise to you is that I won’t put anything on this list that doesn’t truly deserve to be here.

These are all really great books.

Some Spiritual Practices Actually Work. It’s Amazing.

There are hundreds of spiritual techniques for overcoming depression and increasing inner peace. Only one blog talks about whether or not they work. With ratings. (Take that, God.)

I Suspect Inner Peace Is Just a Myth. Here Are Interviews With People Who Disagree.

Some people are such show-offs. But that doesn’t mean they’re not worth listening to.

Depression, Begone! (Thanks. You’re Wonderful.)

It’s a great time to try to get suddenly awesome. So many teachers. So many books.
