    Mindfulness in plain English by Bhante Henepola Gunaratana. Available in hard copy for purchase or free in line at several sites, e.g. http://ftp.budaedu.org/ebooks/pdf/EN036.pdf 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.
