I love Irvin Yalom books about existential psychotherapy; in many of them he speak about different patient cases which are fascinating.

Also the examined life by Stephen Grosz is a good easy interesting read; its a narrative of different patient cases

Overcoming series is a good reference for patients and those wanting to support patients, on a range of topics - or so told me a friendly psychologist. Of course other free sources are helpful such as getselfhelp.co.uk and psychologytools websites.
