Oh, and you if you need a little more persuading or motivation you might want to check up on books by Sam Harris [1] and Michael A. Singer [2]. The first one is also a neuroscientist and a famous sceptic, and the second is a former programmer and a successful businessman. Personally, when I was in a similar place as you are now, I found that simply reading Singer’s book was a form of therapy.

If you want just the science and the meditation without any mumbo-jumbo, I'd recommend Sam Harris' Waking Up.
I found Waking Up by Sam Harris pretty interesting. It's a bit more abstract than a how-to manual, more why and what.
