Woodworking Book Reviews

We have all learned woodworking through some type of instruction. I've found classes and individual instruction the most valuable. Unfortunately, classes can be expenesive and may not fit into your schedule. I've found books and the Internet to be the most accecible places for instruction. However, my preferece for complete information is from reading books. Where else can you find hundreds of pages on the seemly simple topics such as shaprening or using a hand plane?

I've compliled a list of books that I've read. This list doesn't include every single book I own but rather a collection of books that I've found particularly useful. In contrast to my hand tool and power tool reviews, I don't provide a numeric grade to the books. If I don't like a book, it just doesn't make it to my list.
