Useful psychology and psychotherapy books

I am perhaps being premature here, because I've just started the book and may find by the end that I hate it.

But I'm reading "The Anatomy of Dependence". While this is, to some extent, a commentary on Japanese culture, it is also an exploration of the concept of "amae", a word for which there is apparently no adequate English equivilant.

But it awakes in me an excitement that is based on the idea of limitations in Western language and concepts to explain what are probably universal conditions. And that if we had a different language, we might view things differently. Or that pathology may be, to some degree, a matter of cultural biases and language limitations.
