the teachings of the Buddha by jack kornfield is a good start. a good book concering mindfulness and with some guided meditations is
Radical Acceptance, and sorry i forget the author.Meditation can be done anywhere anytime, simply sit comfortably watch your breath and concentrate your mind on your breathing. the point is not to doze off or daydream or attach to wandering thoughts but to fix your mind on the moment at hand. your best bet is to find a qualified teacher who can teach you meditation because otherwise you might just be wasting your time. meditation in the first stage is difficult because the mind is often unruly and jumps wildy from one thing to the other, the point is just to let the thoughts pass as they will through your mind like clouds passing through an open sky. After you advance in your concentration at times your meditation will be blissful and serene. other times it may be uncomfortable or even frightening but the point is to just let go into the experience and stay mindful of what it is you are feeling.

Well, the first thing you may want to look at is the four noble truths: 
1.  All conditioned experience is suffering.

2.  The cause of suffering is attachment to impermanence.

3.  There is a way to release attachments.

4.  Freedom lies in Practice (following the eightfold path)

This was the very first teaching the Buddha delivered after he woke up to the true nature of experiencing.

Most of all, know now, that you are already Buddha.  You just have'nt realised it yet.

:heart:Peace:heart:

Why would you adopt a religion that you were not well versed in the history of?

"A warrior is a hunter. He calculates everything. That's control. Once his calculations are over, he acts. He lets go. That's abandon. A warrior is not a leaf at the mercy of the wind. No one can push him; no one can make him do things against himself or against his better judgment. A warrior is tuned to survive, and he survives in the best of all possible fashions." ― Carlos Castaneda

...Thats like saying why would someone adopt christianity as a religion when they didn't know anything about it...Too progress in a religion you have to learn more on how to live by it...

Thx to everybody that helped...

Sure, why not? Does one need to know the story of Buddha to agree with his teachings?
