I actually found the recommendation for this book in a thread somewhere around here on permies, and I bought the book and am completely loving it. It may have been done before but just in case it hasn't I'll throw it out there:
Also - for anyone thinking about trying to grow veggies 365 days a year, this lady has done some interesting stuff! I also own this book so I have no bias, promise!
Some wishlist books for me are the books by Rick Austin on building a survival greenhouse and another one about building a survival garden and Brad Lancaster's water books that I saw through watching the home grown food summit vids.
hmm that's all I can think of for now but I'll post more if I come up with anything else.

M. Kat Anderson - "Tending the Wild"
Scott Ogden - "Waterwise Plants for Sustainable Gardens 200 Drought-Tolerant Choices for all Climates" (especially applicable for the west coast)
Michael Phillips - "The Holistic Orchard"
James C Scott - "Seeing like a State" (from Toby Hemenways Liberation Permaculture talk, social permaculture but might be considered too political for a permies giveaway though I dunno)
and as a non-PV2 inspired candidates:
Dan Louche - "Tiny House Design & Construction Guide"
Some of Rob Roy's books, like "Mortgage Free", "Cordwood Building", and "Timber Framing for the Rest of Us"

I think I am getting too big of a wishlist from watching all the stuff in home grown food summit - another one to add is the "botany in a day" by thomas elpel and also he made a really cool kids book to help them learn how to identify plants. These may have already been done before but have to put it on just in case. Gosh, there are too many awesome books out there!!!

I think a interview with the author would be cool. She has authored several books and Roberta turned me on to her blog where she does product reviews. http://katysays.com

I remember Katy saying something about how this stuff is on a level with the paleo movement but Goes even deeper at a cellular level and I would hate to see such good health information buried in the paleo thread.

In a slightly related question: Where are the guest authors announced? I never seem to know in time that they are coming. If I could know a week or two ahead of time, I can usually find a copy of their book then I can ask more questions. As it is, I seem to miss the announcement and don't have any good questions for them.

They are announced in the dailyish email, and there are banners at the top of permies that are set at a really high weight so they should show very often.
There hasnt been any promotions for a few weeks though, because we have been too busy being focused on other things. But if you want, we can contact him. Could you possibly find his email address and send it to me? Or just post it here?
