I read it a few months ago and really enjoyed it. I like the author's style of writing and the information in it is quite useful. It incorporates many methods and concepts that would fit in here. It gives some useful facts on the weeds that are needed for different situations, and stresses the needs to have a controlled weed population. I've been taking his methods to heart this season, though weeds can get out of hand (for me buttercups mostly, but the clover is doing great). I'd suggest giving it a read, plus it's free. I'll list the contents below:
1. Weeds and Youth
2. Weeds and Weeds
3. Weeds and the Soil World
4. The Fertility Chain and Soil Balance
5. Plant Roots
6. Weeds as Mother Crops
7. Weeds in the Rotation
8. Weeds and Pasture Improvement
9. Weeds in the Compost 10. Weeds as Food
11. Weeds and Wildlife
12. Sponge Structure versus Dams
13. Here and Yon
14. Nature's Togetherness Law
Thank you for posting the link. I have had this title on my Thriftbooks.com wishlist for a very long time and have never seen it come into stock. Having been written in 1950 and long out of print, it is almost non-existent today. Having access to a PDF version is very handy. I will be downloading it today.

This link opens directly into the PDF! Thank you for posting it, Trace.
Revisiting the link in my previous post revealed that you have to 'request' a copy for 'personal study' as part of a copyright clearance through some Australian agency. That's fine, I suppose, as it is still free. I prefer to cut out all the middle parts, though.
