Good books or resources on living well with chronic pain

Anyone know of good books on how to best deal with the ongoing emotional and physical impact of chronic pain. I am not seeking another book about the various surgical or exercise options.

I have plenty of those resources, and do the stretches, McKenzie work, pilates etc, and will continue these.

However, I would like to find some resources for dealing with the ongoing pain.I know it has to have a huge impact on my life, from a holistic perspective, but I have not found any good resources on how to cope with it, and live a healthy, satisfying life.

Any suggestions? I am not religious, so prayer is not a great option for me, but can be for others.

If I am going to be in chronic pain for the long term, I am going to do everything I can to minimize the negative aspects of this ongoing challenge.
