Stumbling on Happiness - Daniel Gilbert Best thing: Not a self-help book :)
It doesn't try to preach, because there aren't many things to preach anyway, only to point out what's wrong with us. And the author does it with charming wit.
In some places, the experiments that he cites to substantiate his points seem inadequate, but that is more than compensated by the perspicacity with which he lays bare the irrationality of the decision we make based on our foresight, imagination and memory, and why they aren't as perfect as we think they are.
