This table is an enormously beneficial resource, thanks to all involved. So many new additions to my library.

Is it ok if I suggest books that I've found eminently useful?
Geoff Lawton recommended on Youtube: 'Gertrud Franck (Companion Planting: Successful Gardening the Organic Way)'
It's a little dry with a lot of reflections on space-utilization, but the home-garden scale and no-nonsense descriptions suit my purposes quite well.

I can also recommend Permaculture: Principles & Pathways Beyond Sustainability by David Holmgren.
It's not a practical guide, but uses theory and symbols to expand your conceptual vocabulary around permaculture.

Finally, Biochar for Environmental Management by Johannes Lehmann & Steven Joseph
This is an incredibly dense, dry technical review of biochar studies up to 2015.
It ranges from biochar microscopy to global impacts of future biochar markets to case studies.
It's not a practical guide, it's quite inaccessible, but it's excellent food for thought for an environmentally-minded policy wonk (like me).
Foreword and Chapter 1 are free on it's website.

Could we have a column for average rating... so those of us who are overwhelmed with book recommendations/slow readers could use it a a data point to select our next book.

Also this awesome!

I, too, would love an average column, and we've actually been working toward that for quite some time. It just requires programming, which sadly most of us moderators have no idea how to do, and so it's on the long list of things-to-do for our few, very beloved, programmers.

Nice list, but the books seem to be listed in no particular order.  Makes it harder to search for a particular book that you want to know about.  Am I missing something?

Interesting question TJ. I have wondered the same thing before so today I played around with it & discovered something useful. Copy & paste the grid into spreadsheet program like Excel or Open Office. Then it can easily be alphabetically sorted.

The order, top to bottom, is the number of reviews shown.  

The order, left to right, is the number of reviews shown.

So the top book is the book with the most reviews that appear.  

There could be a book lower that has more reviews, but most of the reviews are by people that have reviewed just one book.   I think for a review to show up, the reviewer has to have reviewed four or five books.

If I want to write a book review, for a book not on the lis, how do I go about doing that? Is that something a non-staff member can do?

Yes.  Mostly.

Is there a thread for the book following the format of the other books?  Do you already have a review of the book as a post in the thread for the book following the format of the other reviews?  If you have those things, then simply post a link to the book thread and we will manually include it.  

Note that your reviews won't show up until you have more reviews than the last person on the list.
