Mindfulness in Plain English By Ven. Henepola Gunaratana
I found it from another member who reccomended it (interesting enough to answer another question of the week) and after reading it started using Vipassana meditation myself.
It's a very nice little book that is about a hundred pages. It's set up as a very basic guide to get one started practicing meditation. While it is a Buddhist method of meditation the author tries to represent it without requiring the reader to start practicing Buddhism as well. The later chapters make it very obvious of the author's spiritual beliefs but its a very nice book overall.

I really love Illusion's Game: The Life and Teaching of Naropa, by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. It's just packed with psychologial insights, and I remember it speaking to me in a way that's really distinct.

Buddha's Map and Breath of Love are my two favorite meditation books. Buddha's Map is easy to understand, and the instructions are simple to follow, and the techniques are effective. Breath of Love is more of a scholarly work but it is a great introduction to the 6 r's mindfulness practice. I use both of these books daily.
