    Mindfulness in plain English by Bhante Henepola Gunaratana. Available in hard copy for purchase or free in line at several sites, e.g. An outstanding relatively short introductory how to and why guide to meditation written by a Sri Lankan monk who now runs a monastery and retreat center in West Virginia. Chapter 1, “Meditation, why bother?” Makes a particularly captivating introduction.
