Book Recommendation: Meditation and Mantras

I like this book a lot because I think Swami Vishnu-Devananda gives a short and to the point yet comprehensive introduction to different styles of mediation and mantras. Lots of very practical guidelines how to build a mediation practice and how to incorporate mantras.
