I'd like to offer a few books that have helped in more ways then I can put down in words. Also would like others to add suggestions of books.

Healing Your Emotional Self - Beverly Engel

This book focuses on self-image and how to change the way you look at yourself, also focuses on child abuse and the affects a care-giver has on a child. Honestly I'm glad I read this book before I had kids just to understand the impact I could potentially have on them. It is really worth reading if you think down on yourself quite often.

Feeling Good - David D. Burns, M.D.

This comes in just book form and also handbook. It helps to overcome depression and anxiety. It focuses on cognitive therapy. This book is amazing.

Check these out:

Learned Optimism - this was recommended to me by a business psychologist and it was a great, and quick, read.

The War of Art - recommended by the same psychologist. This book is very slightly directed at writers, but is mostly about overcoming resistance, which I find anxiety causes an awful lot of. Also a quick read.

Delivered from Distraction - this one is an ADD book, but much of it is about managing the "race-car brain" and I found that much of it applied to the same feelings I get with anxiety.

Here is another suggestion for a good book to read:
 
 
You can research this book on Amazon if you would like a preview of what this book covers.

I love the book "The anxiety and phobia workbook" by Bourne. It has helped a lot, and I just ordered his follow up book from amazon (Beyond anxiety and phobia) plust a CBT book that I have heard good things about called "The cognitive behavioral workbook for anxiety". I will let you guys know how these books are for me.

Also, if you are a female, I found a book called "When words arent enough" a good book, with loads of information.

Im still hanging in there, eating mostly soups, ensures, carnations, juice, banannas, and water. I think I do feel a little better than I did this time last month so, keep your fingers crossed, and all of you here are in my thoughts and prayers as well.

Good to hear from you and thanks for sharing re books.  I have heard of those workbooks too but not the one, "When Words Aren't  Enough"
 
I will have to check on that one.
