And then there's this intro to Buddhism by Lodro Rinzler. A great young Shambhala Buddhist teacher with a very approachable intro. I recommend this book all the time to "Shambhalians" and others of different sects and non-sectarians.
Life Happens: Living a Healthy Life despite a Chronic Illness by Nathalie Brisebois. Not really a cookbook - but sure a great book, worth an exception. Nathalie has found a path to health and happiness. She shares the story of her experiences battling multiple sclerosis, addressing alternatives such as nutrition, yoga, meditation, veganism.
