Somewhere at the end, have a summary that is a step-by-step overview to accomplishing the task so the information isn't overwhelming. I would love to see it broken down into simple broad steps, like:
step 1 - clear the area - see chapter one for various methods
step 2 - plant your cover crop - see chapter two for cover plants by season
step 3 - turn the cover crop into soil - chapter x for methods
Rather than read a 300 page book and trying to figure out what to do, I can look at a list that tells me how to get started, look over the information that pertains to that, and get out on my property and get started with SOMETHING, without worrying about what to do next, or whatever. I find it extremely motivating if I know exactly how to start, there is no confusion as to the order of things, and I have subsequent steps laid out for me.
